Aramith really does make a difference
January 12, 2010
I'm not a chemist, but I play a lot of pool, and coming from a set of lesser quality balls, I can say without hesitation that phenolic is superior to other materials. My table has new Simonis 860 on it, and the second I switched to these balls, I noticed better grip on english, draw, and follow. Also, where a jump or masse shot would leave an obvious scuff on the old cue, the Aramith cue comes clean and shiny with a simple damp wipe. Visually, these balls appear to have a clearcoat that makes them shine on the table. These are nowhere near the cheapest ball on the market, but if you're looking to duplicate the conditions the pros play, these are a must.
