I was excited to see the Mission Unknown show up and immediately drilled it with the anticipation of the original Missions. Immediately I was impressed with the same core rotation but with the cleaner, smoother cover the angle at the back was incredible. The stronger cover (12.7) created enough footprint to allow the ball to read the volume and pattern properly. Most balls with the cover this smooth and shiny would create lots of over/under but not with the Core and Cover strength. The exciting thing about this ball is its versatility. If you need more midlane or an earlier skid phase, you are an abralon pad away from your desired ball motion. The Mission is back!
