Any feedback from the BCA and/or US Open regarding the new balls?

So you played with them? How did they play? Or, are you just posting your worthless opinion?

I couldn't find any real information on the web, maybe a missed a thread here?

Who makes them? Are they different and how/why? In a few screenshots, I think I saw the measles cue ball. Is the cyclop cue ball a measles ball or was the tournament mixing and matching?

These are the balls. Justin took this pic a week or so ago from the CSI offices.

I didn't see any players flipping up their hands like
"that ball totally reacted funny" after a shot. But I never hit one.
From the way they moved on the stream they didn't seem especially heavy or light or weird.

I like the colors and they seem a little easier to tell apart. I thought the light blue one
blended a little too closely with simonis tournament blue.

Thanks. I could probably get used to it, but my first reaction to the light blue is negative. But it would reduce confusion on TV and the internet between the 3/5/7.

Yeah, I guess it's subjective. I actually like them.
