Aramith Stone Billiard Balls


Aramith Stone Billiard Balls

Hello all! I am looking forward to purchasing my first table very soon and am delighted to find this website and forums. I look forward to contributing on a regular basis in the near future.

One thing I have not found any mention of on here is the quality and playability of the Aramith Stone Balls. The owner of the local shop here stuck his nose up at them, but then suggested I go with the Centennials :)

Anyone here played with this ball set and can shed any light on them for me? Looking for not only playability but also durability. I am not interested in paying that much for balls that are just going to chip through normal play.

    Aramith Crown Standard Billiard Balls range in price from $90.00 - $280.00. Aramith Stone Balls "Granite" price range is between $89.95 - $129.00. I'm not suggesting you break the bank but you get what you pay for. Belgian PREMIUM ARAMITH Phenolic Pool Balls are somewhere in the middle at $104.00 or Belgian SUPER ARAMITH PRO Pool Balls at $159.00. I don't think chipping would be a problem unless they bounce on a cement floor. Enjoy your new table and let us know what balls you chose.

    Aramith makes an awesome ball no matter the set you get. The stone balls are novelty balls though. I would imagine the salesperson stuck his nose up at you because he wanted to sell you the centennials which he likely makes decent money on. also some people swear buy them. actually those brunswick balls are really good but really expensive.

    Thank you for your responses. I guess what I am asking is how can I find out the equivalent quality line of balls by Aramith? In other words, if I pay $120 for these balls, am I getting an $80 set of balls with a $40 paint job or is it $20 balls with a $100 paint job? :)

    No no. There is no "paint job" with Aramith. the first person to reply made some good choices. the standards in the white box are good. i would likely recommend the premier or premium balls. They are in a green box.
