    I was under the impression that the 1G Aramith balls are the ones used on professional tournament play. However, someone who should know (a former player and top coach) has told a pal of mine that they are not and in fact the balls used are actually slightly smaller than those balls. Surely not??! Anyone able to confirm/deny??

      Is true, they are not only smaller but rounder.

        Someone told me from a realisable source that one of the top seeded players (I won't say who) complained to the tournament director stating he felt the balls were too round. Can anyone confirm this..?

                      They would be the Zero-G balls, developed by NASA.

                        I actually hope that one day, there will be a 3 dimensional, zero gravity form of snooker that can only be played in space. That would be awesome.

                          I can see it now 'where's the cue ball going.............****'
                          It's hard to pot balls with a Chimpanzee tea party going on in your head

                              FOR GOODNESS SAKE....TAKE THIS TO THE BANK, THEY ARE 1G BALLS THE SAME AS EVERYONE CAN BUY. THEY ARE PROBABLY CLEANED AND POLISHED MORE BY THE REFEREES THAN THE BALLS YOU GET DOWN AT THE CLUB (so they may be rounder but definitely not smaller, until the cueball wears down a bit)
