Instead of crossing the fifth arrow and getting his ball to 10 at the breakpoint, he could cross between the third and fourth arrows while using the same breakpoint. The DR-7 cover gave all three testers more length and back end than the Ruby, but not as much length and angle as the Kinetic Amethyst. Toward the end of
