    Played with the ball a fair bit last few days and not noticed an increase in kicks, the marking is still clearly there, probably something I may need to re-write once a month ish when playing regularly. Time will tell.

    Had a couple of hours solo today and the new ball plays perfectly. Happy days!

    Also had an idea, I've used a permanent ink infrared pen to mark my initials on the ball! You can buy the pen torch combined on eBay

    I've got a strong feeling that it literally only happened the other day and i quite possibly havent even played with that smaller white, just bought it home with me..

    Oh well, if I was playing golf my costs would be a lot higher in terms of balls and its always nice to buy something new and shiny.

    Still making me laugh that he has a "make an offer" button on the page but declines 12.95!! Who is gonna bother asking for 30p off!?!?
    I used this guy in Wales to buy from 12;95 inc delivery https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ARAMITH-T...UAAOSwmVBbK819
    Still cant believe some toad swapped my cue ball out! I pretty much only play in my social club, people eh!!

    it is strange, I have asked them in the past but did not get any real information in the reply
    Yes - I believe Chesworth Cues will weigh balls before sending out

    remember, 1g and 3g balls are the SAME balls, just that Saluc/Aramith spend a little longer weighing them to the finer tolerance and make up the 1g sets.
    Understand. My 1G set are ALL above 141g. In fact most are closer to 142g E.g. 141.83. I was able to get a replacement white from Chesworth Cues which was 142g bang on so maintained the 1g integrity of my set. Just to repeat myself. Can’t understand why Saluc can’t get a bit more consistency in the weights.

    This seller says weight is 140g. Would be ok to fit into most 3G sets but maybe not 1G sets.

    Even if its not my original ball its still looks and feels like a TC, Im shocked they actually get smaller!! how does that happen and how do they remain perfectly spherical?! Answers on a used Ten pound note please!

    Would love to see the production process at Saluc and an explanation of why the balls end up all different weights E.g. 3 grammes difference between the lightest and the heaviest. I would have thought that in a manufacturing process using machines, and maybe computers, all the balls should be the same weight. Maybe the process is not as automated as I’m thinking. I heard that the liquid phenolic resin is poured into moulds and allowed to harden. After that the moulds are broken open and the balls go through some sort of “smoothing and polishing” process. Maybe that means that each ball is unique. Don’t know.
