The combination of its eTrax-H19 hybrid reactive coverstock and higher grit finish gives this ball more length and angularity than the original Halo. This ball’s large amount of flare potential and aggressive cover make it a strong contender on slicker conditions.

The Halo Vision gave them both easy hook through the oil and a strong motion at the end of the pattern. Cranker’s ball was just inside of 30 off his hand, with a target around the middle arrow and a breakpoint out on six.
