Can't remember for sure, but I think Fred was either talking about Aunt Esther, or maybe one of Lamont's dates that he didn't like.

All the best,

Good memory...I was a bit younger, and these were re-runs on WTBS out of Boston in the early 80s on early cable TV. So they were on every day. Big part of my childhood.

Gotcha - like Perry Mason followed the Big Valley in the afternoon when I was a kid but not really, lol.

Damn, now I miss Audra!

Hereís the link, Mr M.

https://www.aramith.com/story-behind...-black-colours

I wrote to Aramith last year to enquire about this Raschig Four Player set from 1983. Alas, I did not receive a reply but wonder if my letter and accompanying photograph influenced their new design in some small way?

Best wishes.

I think these are terrible. It is very disorienting. I keep thinking that they are setting up for the wrong ball.

Absolutely it did. They couldíve at least have given you an atta boy for doing the legwork.
On a side note, I would be more forgiving if they actually released a 4player set like that.

If they were trying to make it easier to see on TV it was a total fail. Might be better on a table specifically lit for TV, but that was not the case at Griff's.
Personally don't like them at all. Good thing is I'll probably never have too play with them

I literally hate this black set.

Having said that, I'm not a fan of "any" aramith ball other than their cueballs.

The so called duramith technology does NOT stay as clean as cyclop ball....not even close.

Jeff


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?

I've been thinking about this. Why are the black stripes a problem? Because you can't see the edge of the ball? That was said earlier in the thread. Obviously most of you must be 9 ball players. I play 8 ball...mostly.... and have been told over and over again that shooting at the 8 ball is no different then all the others. That the only reason I miss the 8 is because it's all in my head. So now you are saying I can run the table down to the 8, and have been missing the 8 because its black? Glad to know it wasnt me.

If the black is harder to see because of less contrast, I know how to fix the problem. We all need to start covering our tables in white cloth! That'll work. And we can use chalk in its natural color too!

I guess i would have to try shooting with them before I personally can denounce them. But that must be the wrong way to do things these days.

A friend of mine has a table with black cloth. Talk about lack of contrast! If a solid ball was on a cushion you could hardly see the ball!
