The Ebonite Salute uses a proven winner of a core that was first used in the Apex Adrenaline and then again in the Big Time line. This symmetrical core is surrounded by a new hybrid coverstock, which is named for exactly what it is. The Big Time Hybrid 80/20 is a throwback to the color scheme from the Big Time, but this time around, it is an 80% pearl and 20% solid mixture. This gave our testers the length and back end of a pearl cover with some of the traction in the oil of a solid.
