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

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.

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.
