    Showing my bias, I like 5 ball in general (especially on any EM). 5 ball had been standard for many many years, and growing up that is what most of the machines were set to that I had the pleasure of playing...of course, as pins evolved (and SS came into the picture) the 3 ball became more popular. 3 ball play will certainly sharpen your skills because there is less room for error.
