Next up, GLOW BALLS.. like glow bowling..
the numbers glow inside the balls, and the
balls flash when you hit ‘em.
Don’t tell the Matchroom lady...

Riding the “black” shaft wave? The 4 and the 5... Out with the old; in with the new... Any attention is better than none? ...Seems to be working.

who is hurt though? the miniscule pool audience of catholic northern irishmen? seems far-fetched as a reason. sky sports air football matches with the netherlands team dressed in orange.. in fact they dress orange in most sports (fun fact: their orange has the same roots as the irish orange)

this is probably just a novelty ball set they want to promote

I am Dutch and I have no clue what the roots are of our love for the color orange. Always thought it had to do with a king we once had, Willem van Oranje ('William of Orange')...
But anyway, I also select option 1 and I agree that it's a stupid choice to have the 5 be the purple that the 4 once had. Having said that, I watched some of the USA vs CSI warmup match this week and none of the players seemed to have a problem with those colors so apparently it's no real issue.

I heard Matchroom lady Emily comment that they worked with Aramith to work out which colors worked best on all types of screens people will watch pool on, and this is what they came up with. Well they are the pros so who are we to judge? Just squint your eyes to discern the 2 from the 4. Or is that the 5?

Well EF and Aramith are full of crap. So-called tv balls were designed with standard def. in mind. No need with hi-def tv or streams. When they played the World 10b in Vegas they used the new Predator balls which use CLASSIC Centennial-style colors/stripes. Players LOVED them and they were VERY easy to make out on the stream. Marchroom dogged it here. They don't do that often and hopefully these balls will have a short lifespan.

william later took the english throne and then defeated the irish in the williamite war.. which is why it's a controversial color in northern ireland. the protestants worship william annually in the orange march, which usually leads to sectarian violence

anywho. i call bull on this being the reason.
