After winning the record $250,000 PBA Tournament of Champions purse, all eyes were on “Major Mika” Koivuniemi and accolades of Ebonite’s Mission Domination ball spread like wildfire.
“We had no doubt this ball would prove itself in a big way this season,” said Ed Gallagher, Ebonite brand manager. “In honor of Mika’s historic prize, the Mission Domination will now be called Mission $250k.”
Mission $250k is not a new ball design – it’s the same hard-hitting ball Mika used to defeat Tom Smallwood, 269-207 – just a new name. Mission $250k combines the XL 1300 Reactive™ Resin veneer and the Mission 1.0 core to provide the most backend continuation of the ball series to date. In Black Pearl, this ball looks as hot as it handles.
The Mission Domination / Mission $250k was released February 3, 2011.The first run of balls were engraved Domination and all future balls will be engraved $250k
