Billiard Pool Balls Buyers Guide Part 1
Why does one set of pool balls sell for $29. and another $300.? The Billiard Congress of America (BCA), standards for balls dictate that they must be of a certain weight and a certain roundness. Polyester or plastic can't meet those standards. But more importantly they are very hard on billiard cloth. Under a microscope you would see that they look like the surface of the moon. Only phenolic resin balls can be made smooth enough and meet the standards of the BCA. They also are not painted but made with the colors in the material. By spending just over $100. on the balls you will save money on the cloth and on your game skills. Keep shooting!!
