one cause for black marks on pool balls is dye transferring from diamond pockets.

best,

If it is a Diamond, here is what I did. I took some Black cloth and double face tape and taped it to the back of the pockets. Works great and has been about a year in April, so far so good.
I could not believe how bad it was before that.

I think it has been a good 5 years or more that Diamond has had the black mark problem with there pockets. Even a 14 year old kid could figure out what the problem is by now. Me thinks they know the pockets can't be fixed, but they bought so many of them at a cheap price its hard to dump them and get something that works. Diamond does a lot for pool, but that don't give them a pass on not standing behind their product. Johnnyt

I think you should tell us what kind of table and pockets you have.

The after-market knock-off Gold Crown pockets leave the worst marks, imo.

I have had problems with marks and chips in the balls on a Olhausan that I practice on. I find that when the tables are redone by someone that does not pay close attention the nails come out of the pockets and chip the balls, also adds to the marking problem

Sorry, but wrong answer...Diamond has new pockets that don't leave any marks at all....and guess what, they're made in China....imagine that

What poolrooms have the tables with new pockets and when did they get them? I hope there is no charge for getting the new ones on all the tables that have the pockets that mark. Johnnyt

Don't have a clue, none of my business to know, and sure...Diamond is going to start replacing pocket liners at no charge....because I heard Ford is going to start letting people drive in with their 2010 Mustangs and replace them with 2014's at no charge, and I heard Brunswick is going to replace ALL the Brunstone playing surfaces they sold with all the GC1's 2's and 3's....for free with REAL slates because the Brunstone playing surfaces were so swayback to begin with
