The Wise Man is the mid-price release from Storm in the Don Carter product line. The polished pearlized coverstock paired with the high RG core gives this ball the length needed to perform at its best on our medium test pattern. Cranker liked this one just a little more than Stroker and Tweener. He liked that he could catch all of it at the bottom and it still would not start up too early.
