They are of equal quality and will last just as long. They are both made by Saluc (Aramith) in Belgium and use the same phenolic compound. The real difference is in the design. I happen to think the Brunswick Centennials look nicer but that's a matter of personal taste.

Agree... B. Centennials are a little more expensive. I'm not sure though if they also have the dotted CB which, for many people, serves as a training ball as well /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Fats:
We have seen this stated on this post many times, and I tend to believe it: it seems perfectly plausible that B Centennials are made by Saluc. But...Do we know this for SURE? Does the Centennials box say Saluc? Does Brunswick agree?

I also like the look of the Centennials. But it is a matter of taste.

He's checked it out with the Saluc folks who tell him this. I believe him.

Aramith does indeed make the Brunswick Centennials.

Not quite. /ccboard/images/graemlins/blush.gif

As others have noted, a company named Saluc makes both the Aramith and the Centennial balls.
