    The balls used on tour are no different from the balls anyone can buy as I doubt Aramith would make different set of balls "just" for the tour as that would be a lot of investment without much return
    They are the same EXCEPT (as TD says) they are played in near-optimum conditions, brand new cloths, cleaned tables, cleaned within an inch of their lives - unlike us mere-mortals who have to use tables that are dusty, cloths cleaned once in a blue-moon, rails are dirty so balls get dirty every time they are potted, balls hardly every clean properly - and anyway why bother as the tables are only going to dirty them.
    The pro balls are "rounder" because they are cleaner, running on clean cloths

      To be fair I was watching the snooker yesterday and thought the balls looked awfully spherical
      "just tap it in"

        Honestly it's a fact, I asked Steve Davis , when he did an exhibition at our club, if pro balls were rounder than club balls and he flatly denied it, we all know you only do that when you have something to hide, how much proof do you need?
        This is how you play darts ,MVG two nines in the same match!

          I think there's a conspiracy against us all! I'm also fairly certain that its the table that moves...not the balls! They've programmed our minds to believe they are spherical but actually they are square. Did you just see that quiver in the wall? : P
          sigpicNo cheap shots...well maybe the odd one if its funny...

            Not necessarily true. 3G had a weight difference of (at most) 3 grams and 1G (at most) 1 gram. The balls are made in batches of each colour, ie not a set... In theory a Pro Comp set could be exactly the same and a set of 1G half of them 1G lighter than the other half.....

            It's all about quality\weight control, which is a tad odd as they claim consistent density: so how can the weight change without the size?

              Microscopic bubbles I would guess, they're in everything if you go small enough, so the lighter balls must have more air in them.

                At the Scottish open the balls they used were in the TC box (3G) . I saw them bring the balls out before the match .
