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

How much do phenolic balls weigh?

About 6 oz, I think.

Here's the WPA specs:

16. BALLS AND BALL RACK
All balls must be composed of cast phenolic resin plastic and measure 2 ¼ (+.005) inches [5.715 cm (+ .127 mm)] in diameter and weigh 5 ½ to 6 oz [156 to 170 gms].

I think they would be even harder to play with than the others. The item is mislabeled in the auction -- those are not Crystalate balls.

"Cropper" is a good, free tool that does screen captures.

Only balls we ever played with back in the day. Now the youngsters insist on balls that are round with identifiable numbers and color schemes etc.

Won't be long until these kids want a cue that rolls straight.

It's a shame what society has devolved into.

Just what I thought. These clear balls will play like ping pong balls. Try 'em if you don't believe me. Someone sent me a set with my name on every ball years ago, along with a bill for $40. I almost sent them back but kept them instead. I only played with them once and I won't make that mistake again.
