While the traditional billiard ball color scheme may provide the best contrast between balls, that is not the case when it comes to TV, Web and video transmission, as dark blue, dark purple and maroon could be difficult to distinguish. That is why Aramith developed this new Aramith Tournament BLACK set featuring a light purple to replace orange and a lighter green to replace the darker one.
As for the black design on the striped balls, it was first designed for the nine-ball game to better distinguish the 9-ball with the 1-ball. Featured on all striped balls it is an innovative and groundbreaking look (patent pending).
