I heard that comment too on the stream and took it the same way. I guess that's how the British say "My way, or the highway!"

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.
Changing the uniform and changing the colors of the actual balls that your trying to bear down on .. I think the black will make that difficult but then again they arenít playing 8 ball so the 10 ball will only be the issue.


Player........... road line with 12.9 revo and 314/3
Break cue.... bk3
jump cue..... Fury
Case............ Molinari butterfly

If you live with one foot in the future and one in the past you'll piss all over the present.

I hate the set, but I really want a black measles in duramith to match my beautiful non-black series tournament set. It would be better if the measles had the aramith logo not in the middle of the pattern, too, but I'm not too pissed about it.

Agreed. Let's make a baseball black. Or a football white. A soccer ball black. I guess all that would be fine as long as my balls are not blue!!!

BALL COLORS

I know that most know this, but here is how the original colors of pool balls were determined:

1. The first three balls (1,2,3) are PRIMARY colors....yellow, blue and red.
They occur with maximum separation on the color wheel so as to provide maximum contrast.

2. The next three balls are all SECONDARY colors, comprised strictly of combined primary colors.
Four is purple = red + blue
Five is orange = red + yellow
Six is green = blue + yellow
These secondary colors also provide maximum separation and contrast on the color wheel.

3. The next ball (seven) is a TERTIARY color, comprised of a primary and secondary color.
Seven is maroon = red (primary) + purple (secondary).

4. The cue ball (white) and eight ball (black) are the presence of all colors and no colors.

5. The Nine through Fifteen balls repeat the colors of the 1 through 7 except as striped balls.

The colors may have been originally established by leveraging colors of croquet balls.

Whew, sorry!
I was an engineer for 40+ years, and it resurfaces once in a while.
.....And now you know.......
By the way, I am a big fan of the traditional colors.

Thank you Will. I'd heard this once before and it made sense to me then and it still makes sense now. I have only one thing to add - If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

Isn't that from Dr. Dave?

It explains what they are, but not "how" they came to be or why.

The last sentence is more to the "how". Some say snooker colors were taken from croquet colors, which may have originally had something to do with primary colors, but may have been taken from some other source for a different reason. Hard to find definitive answers.

Pool ball colors seem to be more derivative of colors of balls from other games, than specifically chosen for the purpose of playing pool for any reason related to primary colors or contrast.
