This set of progression balls means the balls get lower in the plate from one to the next, creating more challenging pick placements.
The tallest ball offers the easier-to-hook ball, an intermediate-level difficulty on low-angled walls.
The shallowest ball is more complex, meaning the Z-axis is less forgiving regarding tool orientation. The pick will pop off if you allow your ax to rotate away from the wall.
The remaining two holds are between the balls.
