  • Super Crystalate Cue Ball

    I have a set of super Crystalate balls (the genuine kind not the Aramith Phenolic resin kind) that needs a new cue ball. Is it possible to get a new proper SC replacement cue ball and if so from where? I have seen some advertised online but am assuming that they are for the newer SC sets and are made of Phenolic resin. Would it be OK to use Phenolic Resin cue ball with the SC set, or would that be weird? Thanks Dave

    Super Crystalate is no longer manufactured as Aramith have owned the patent since they bought out the Super Crystalate Company in the late 80's and stopped it's production early 90's in favour of their own phenolic resin.
    You would need to probably buy a complete set of old SC balls on ebay or somehwere similar, they come up quite often and are quite cheap.

      in addition to the above, you can look for a billiard set as well as a snooker set, they should be the same size and approx weight
      And you get two whites in one

Don't be fooled but they are better than the standard TC's weight wise, mine only vary by 1 gramme throughout the set.
          That first set look excellent, I'm tempted myself as I like a game of billiards but our club still has it's original SC billiard balls.

            I thought the second set would be the PR
            cheers for the confirmation
