The Centennial version. I like the "Measel" cue ball Aramith has. Really, is there any difference???

I like both the Brunswick Centennial and the Super Aramith Pro-cup balls that come with the measel cue ball. Yes, they are a little bit different, but they both play well.

What I don't like is when people mix a Aramith red circle cue ball with a Centennial set of balls. The red circle is lighter and some players like to use it because it is easier to draw and get action. However, I don't believe the game was meant to be played with a miss matched set of balls. IMHO, the cue ball should be from the same set as the other balls.

Yes. But before I answer, I have to ask a question. Does the measel ball actually come with the set or is it purchased separately?

None ovem play well. They are all soft hi gloss krappamiths.
Wouldnt hav been allowed in the oldendays -- hi-gloss balls were illegal.
How do u rekognize a krappamith ball. Hav a klose look. A krappamith ball iz a vitreous ball, with a bakelite center.
How good iz vitreous -- well, its very good, koz it lasts and lasts and lasts. If tiger woods played pool he would uze a krappamith for sure koz it lasts and lasts and lasts.
And, duznt that hi-gloss look good -- a salesmanager's dream.
Dont worry about all of the mini-kix and maxi-kix u get withem -- they look so good, and they last and last and last.
What iz vitreous -- dunno -- they wont say. But the centers are technically the best centers u kan ever hope to find.
Pity about the krappy bit that aktually kums into play.

Really? intersting so, if Aramith balls weigh less than Centennial balls? That adds an interesting "extra" dimension, inertia as it is. Where's the Physic's Teacher???

The difference in weight is very small and when playing with a matched set, you probably wouldn't even notice it. However, when you mix the lighter cue ball into the heavier Centennial ball set, it does make a difference in how the cue ball reacts.
