14.1 & One Pocket Addict
I certainly learned a few things in this thread, and I am glad all of the posters contributed their knowledge and information. In fact, I think the info was interesting enough to summarize (with quotes and links to the original posts) on a new resource page: cue ball types.
If the people I quoted would like the text or citations to read differently, please let me know.
That looks good. Removing the references to 14.1 is good in a way (obviously you want to cater to a larger crowd than us straight poolers), but IMHO you're leaving valuable information on the table as well. For example, the issue of a lighter cue ball being undesirable in 14.1 (e.g. because of reduced ability to "hold" it [it "wants" to zing around], as well as the propensity to glance off the rack and clusters at weird angles) should be mentioned somewhere.
Thank you for the continued "go forward" practice of including the link on the forums where the citation comes from -- to maintain the context in which the information was offered!
