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!!

The more older I get and seeing thisóIím starting to gravitate towards Russian billiards/pyramid...white balls with just numbers...very simple and elegant. Now if I could just fit a 12 foot table in my house.

Do what??????? Ever heard of the Edsel? That's what they tried saying about it and it was the ugliest pos Ford ever made. These balls are really bad. Response so far is overwhelmingly negative. Have a buddy who's at Griff's. Said when they brought them out he and those sitting with him were like "WTF are those things?"

I'm sure they will go forward with these very ugly balls......until the next time they change them.

Seems like there is a different color ball set, at every tournament.

By her own admission she can't play a lick but she knows what pool balls should look like. I'll most likely never see them (hopefully) in person but having them on major event streams blows.

This certainly isn't a "For players, by players" type of thing. Just a way to stimulate their sales, nothing more.

The U.S. men's and women's natonal soccer teams change their jerseys at least yearly, and pro football has camo jerseys and different colored jerseys all to sell more stuff. Styles change yearly in shoes and fashion, with many looking like stuff I would never wear, but high school kids wear it like crazy. Maybe these will appeal to a younger audience, or maybe they just need a new look to try and sell product. I don't see anything wrong with putting the option out there to try and push sales. We don't have to buy them if we already have a decent set.

I personally don't mind the look, although I like my Brunswick Centennials better. Hopefully this helps keep an industry giant making some money.

Can anyone explain any rational reasoning why the 4-ball would be pink and the 5-ball would be purple as opposed to just the opposite? Seems like they are really asking for players, even pro players in a huge event, to get confused and play the wrong ball. Luckily, the 9-ball is the only striped ball (hideously colored black instead of white) that theyíll have to use for the Mosconi Cup. Perhaps if enough of the participating MC players for both teams voice their displeasure regarding the balls, someone will have enough sense to change it up to the standard Aramith tournament balls!

There is no way they got players input on these dog turds. What happens when non players design things.

Ok. I just saw these on the live stream, and I have to change my mind on my own personal preference. I do not find them attractive when seen on a pool table.

There are literally thousands and thousands of millionaires on the planet but, the very players she is talking about....lol..........they are but a handful in the world.

She can bite my a55...

I was a business man so, I understand what some are thinking and maybe even voice their opinion thinking their gonna teach me/us something about the business end of pro pool but....they can bite my a55 too...

Pro pool is about two things:

The pros
The fans


Yeah, yeah....i knkw it don't work that way.

Let a man dream a little...


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?
