A new low in "TV colors": a pink 4 and purple 5 ball - 11-20-2019, 05:38 PM

So originally we were told that the 4 ball was too difficult to see on TV, meaning that the 4 ball needed to be pink. Fine. But now the orange 5 ball is apparently too difficult to see, so they made the 5 ball purple.

What?

Then there's the 9 ball with black coloring where the white used to be, which might be an even worse development.

Why?

She works with Aramith, of course she should say that, she even admits "I'm biased, these balls are beautiful!"

Pink and purple are so called more feminine colors so no surprise that Emily loves them

I havenít had to look at an actual number on a ball after playing rotation for 3 days when
I was 17....nobody but a rank beginner has had to for over 100 years....
...is this part of a world domination plan by Pinkyís best friend?

If pool players had to have knowledge of geometry and physics before talking about geometry and physics, all of the aiming threads would disappear.

Most likely most people are least interested.

Damnit! I forgot that match was on tonight. I even chilled in my car watching a joe Rogan podcast while my daughter was in dance.

So they turned the purple 4 to pink...then later changed the orange 5 to purple?

I’m not against change, I never had any problem with the lime green 6 and tourney blue 7 but to make the 5 the purple is outrageous lol. If anything make the 5 pink and give the 4 her old color back. And that 9 looks gross

I think a purple 5 is just ill considered. 99%+ of pool balls used in America have a purple 4.

There was never anything wrong with the original colors for the pool balls that was used for over 100 years! Then they started messing with them and began to make pool balls look like snooker balls. Have you listened to the accents on these telecasts. The Brits really put one over on the stupid Yanks again.

I agree.

I don't know why they changed the color of the cloth either.

The whole bullshit about blue being better for TV was a scam, too.

I've watched pool live and on TVs, including black and white ones, for decades and never had any problems with the original colors of balls or cloth.

Now that Iíve thought it over....I think Iím going to place an order for those balls.
....but Iím going to place different values on the letters and numbers...
...if they can figure out my communication....well, hell, Iíll take them.

Agree with everything said here, especially Green over Blue cloth. I do like the measle ball though.
