Edit:
Never mind. Found them on the Olhausen site and ordered some. Hopefully they're comparable to the Cyclop quality. If they are they are a steal.
The League room in west Virginia sells them for 75 shipped or 55 if your close enough.

The picture below isn't mine but that's what they look like.

That's awesome for 83$shipped. They look like old cheap balls from 70s tho. Hopefully they play great. Just ordered. The specs are same as 360$ platinum set. U just don't get the cool rotors cue ball

Diamond is coming out with a new ball set. Seems like a different version of the Hyperion balls looking like a version of centennial

I like the retro look....

I also am concerned about the quality issues previously with the company / manufacturer....

At the price it ain't much harm. Except if you gamble and the balls roll funny...

Yes, those are my Dynasphere balls in my room - and no, that’s not a crack. If you can zoom in, you can make out the reflections and an ultra small dust particle - but no cracks. They’re 99.998% flawless. I do know where the 0.002% part is, but that was only discovered under my 10x jewelers/billiard ball collector’s lamp

I wish the 2 wasnt similar color to the Cyclop 7. They look kinda neat though. Priced very well.

For the price of under 100 the Tungstens so far have performed amazingly.

I have yet to see a mark from the leather diamond pockets appear either.

I’ve no idea where you guys are finding the Dynasphere for under $100. No sites that I’ve seen list them that low, most are double. For $180 I can buy another set of Cyclop Ares.

This is where I ordered mine from:

https://olhausenonline.com/products/...-pool-ball-set

$100US shipped to my door in Canada. Ridiculously cheap, if the quality is there.
I'll put a review up in this thread when they show up.

Did your order go thru? Thought that place folded. Those balls are not in current DS line-up. No offense but they are hideous looking.

Look up the league room on Facebook.

Chris Wilson owns it and is a diamond billards dealer and ships them for 75 bucks.

I did notice they slide off a bit with English dunno if it's because everything is so new or what

I just got some of the tungstens for $80 shipped from olhausen. They play great and i wonder if they were some sort of test run by dynasphere because I don't see them listed on many sites. I like the colors and design more than the platinums.

I ordered a set too from olhausen.. order is confirmed but I haven't got the shipping details or tracking number yet. ....I like the look of the tungstens. Kinda retro like the aramith continental balls.

From what I found its about the only place,that has them listed online that's not a foreign site
