Set is nasty.

9 ball is awesome though.

As strictly a 9-ball set, I don't mind them. I love the 9-ball; reminds me of the Raschig set with no numbers. Still probably wouldn't spend the money on a set.

Giving a solution to a "problem" nobody knew existed...answering a question nobody asked. Creating confusion and division. Perhaps these balls were designed by a USA congressional committee?

Time for a dissenting vote.

While which colors are best is certainly debatable, I am OK with the change made. As a player, the two balls that I struggle most to tell apart are the four and the five, so changing one of them seemed to be in order from my vantage point.

Yes, we'll miss the orange five, but making it more distinguishable from the four is, in my view, a step forward for those who both watch and play pool.

You don't believe there are better ways to distinguish the 4 and the 5 that don't involve making the 5 the traditional color of the 4?

C'mon man. These are worse than those Skittle colored Cyclops. Mosconi himself would puke if he saw these. EF and her band of non-playing cohorts at Matchroom designed these and they dogged it. Big time.

Funny, this ďTV colorsĒ thing seems redundant with everyone
having HD TVs. I never had a problem seeing the regular colors
even on an analog TV.

Just watched an old Accustats match, Centennials were
easy to discern, and those were crap cameras compared
to today.. changing ball colors?.. thatís just stupid, period.

I agree. I have a lot of Accu-Stats matches from the 90's and many times Billy/Grady would, after the break, describe what each ball was (e.g. "That's the 2 ball near the lower left pocket"). I don't remember when "TV balls" came out but it seemed by that time the cameras were better and they weren't needed anyway

Very confusing now to watch pool on TV, since viewers can’t read the numbers. Do the pros ever forget and shoot the wrong ball by mistake?
