Just wondering what other people are buying for the set of balls to go with their tables? I will be purchasing a table soon and have always been set on getting the Brunswick Centennial set. This may also be a stupid question but why was the color of the 4 ball changed in some sets?

I have the Centenials and Arimith Super Pro and like the Centenials a little better. The color of the four was changed to make it more identifiable on TV, or to confuse me personally, I think. Now I can't tell the three from the four where I used to could not tell the four from the seven!

I understand the confusion sometimes on TV when they impose the numbers over the balls they get it wrong. Thanks for the help.

My personal choice is the Brunswick Centennial Balls. They are made by ARAMITH. Make yourself a Ball Polisher & you will be set.

Take care of them & they will last you a long time.

It depends on what equipment you play on when you compete. I have a nice set of Super Aramiths and the spotted cue ball. When I compete in leagues most cueballs are about 1/4 to 1/3 oz. heavier then the object balls, and the balls are dirty and worn. So, I still use my spotted cue ball, but use a set of balls which are 1/4 oz lighter then the cueball.

Most of the guys I know prefer the Centennials because:

They like how the numbers are marked better
and they say they maintain a little better than the
Aramith Super Pro balls.

I know what you are saying about the pink 4 ball, for some reason I always think the 7 ball is the 4 ball when watching a TV match.
