Ball return versus drop pockets

Ball returns can chafe the balls and mark their surface, resulting in inconsistent defection when potting.

Some boxes that I have seen used for storing ball sets can do the same just by walking from the cupboard to the table.

Ball return catches dirt and wears the finish on balls faster in my opinion. You have to crawl under and clean it occasionally which is a pain. Had my drop pocket table over 20 years. Never even once have I wished it had a rerurn.
