Ditto for me, except that I have the Skittles colors.

I have a new and sealed set of Aramith super pro tv's but i'm thinking of selling them and buying Aramith Tournament, Cyclop Hyperion or maybe Predator arco 2 balls.
I like the look of the cyclop hyperion the most but i'm not sure if the quality is as good as duramith from the tournament set? Or is the Tournament set that much of a step up from the super pro's? Which set has the best cue ball to get more action on it?
I also don't know anything about the predator balls.

Which set would you say stays cleaner, which set has the best cue ball and what is the best set overall?
The Aramith Tournament ball stays the cleanest and shiniest of all the balls we use here, which include Brunswick Centennials and Aramith Super Pro. I don't know if that has anything to do with the duramith process. I can't comment on the Cyclop balls as we've never tried them, but I've heard from a very knowledgeable and reputable source that the newer Cyclop balls are of excellent playing quality as opposed to the first ones that came out a few years ago.

I have Aramiths, Centennials, and Cyclop.

The Cyclop stay much cleaner. Supposedly it's because they have a higher resin content, therefore they're harder and therefore can be polished to a finer finish. Therefore crappo doesn't stick to their surface as much.

A new set of balls are not porous from friction, wear and tear and ball cleaning.
Having opened and ran/owned rooms in my earlier years, wiping them down with a damp cloth is all that's needed.
Keep anything abrasive away from the ball set.
Once the outer surface of your ball set has been worn down/compromised, this is normal behavior for your ball set.
I played in a room in MN where they CLEANED The balls after every table use. The ball set, if you played 2 hours, you could wipe a Visible, line in the ball with your finger from the dirt the ball had picked up during play.

Damp cloth?! That makes the balls sticky as hell.

They need some jizz on em. Well, not literally.

But damn, girl. At least spit in your hand.

Sounds likely the balls didn't sit long enough after polishing, too.

They need to have time to let the polish cure, or they attract and hold particles.

Peeps seem to not understand difference of Normal Aramith Super Pro and Duramith Super Pro(still Aramith).

Duramith tech is little bit different than normal super pro. Stays a lot cleaner than old resin.

For some reason, my set of Aramith Tournament with Duramith developed small white smudges after only a few polishes. I just use the Aramith ball polishing liquid that came with my Super Pro set. I cannot polish off those spots now.

I'd call the mfg and see if you can get a replacement set.

I'm not aware of any "Duramith Super Pro" balls.

Saluc produces the "Super Aramith Pro" balls (without Duramith technology) and the "Aramith Tournament" balls (with Duramith technology).
