The new Aramith tournament balls - 11-21-2019, 05:34 AM

Hope I didnít miss this already posted but this popped up on my book of faces last night. Iím not a hater of all things new. I use the crazy colored cyclops balls . but I got to say these donít do a lot for me but you got to develop new products when every else is so I get why they are trying something different.

so purple was bad so they changed the 4 to pink, now orange is bad, so the 5 is now .... purple? purple is OK now? why not make the 4 purple again and make the 5 pink? ... how about a solid white 8 ball and a solid black cue ball!?!?!? that'd be fun lol

I sent Matchroom my feelings on these. Absolutely the WORST looking set of pool balls EVER. Makes those funky Skittle balls look good and i thought that was impossible. Do they really think anyone will buy these? On the stream they look even worse. Whatta joke.

Usually I like "change". These balls, not so much. Brown and Pink, really ?? And yes, by all means, lets make the stripes even darker for players !!

The blue and purple look even more similar in this set than in the standard set.

For some reason the cue ball reminds me of a blueberry muffin.

Seems like a clear play to sell product.

The problem with pool balls is they don’t break down. There are only so many pool players and pool room proprietors. Once they have billiard balls they are out of the market. But for players and owners that want to practice with the same equipment they compete on in tournaments this creates a bunch of upgrade opportunities. Capitalism drives the ship.

I guess I can’t complain. These companies are sponsors and a part of pro pool. If I am forced to upgrade every few years that’s bearable. I don’t love it but I understand it and in the scheme of things it’s not a big deal.

Well if you paint a garbage can anew color it=still a trash holder. Think Aramath is reinventing the wheel a new color, to increase sales, or catch a few fish.

Those balls suck a55.

I literally hate even looking at em.

It seems pool is going the way of cell phones, TVs etc...etc:

Let's put out this model now,

Ok.....now lets change the colors around....

Ok...now lets etc...etc.....until you have bought 25 versions of the same chit....


I knew a fellow that thought he was a good boxer because he was in a position to befriend a lot of "professional boxers". It cost him azzwhippens till he realized he wasn't what he thought/wished he was.

Do you know anyone like the "wannabe" boxer in the pool world?

Well, theyíre not terrible, theyíre just kind of completely wretched.

Black edges. So much for the CTE when you canít see the E.

This had to be the idea of a person who has NEVER played pool for more than 4 hours collectively in their entire life. Who ever signed off is a dumb ass as well.

Iím all for new things, improvements, ideas etc. The skittle colors get a pass from me. These balls donít. I donít care how good they play-pool is a visual game and these look like hell. Pass!!

I remember a lot of pro players saying that the darker colors were harder to aim at because the edge was harder to see. Now they made most of the edges black on the striped balls.

This may sell to recreational home table players that stick black or red cloth on the table. Imagine this set with black cloth? LOL So I want a table to match my room colors for me and my friends to spill beer on and to go with my black WalMart cue, and... ooooh look at those cool balls! I need a set of those also please...
