So while I was at TPF I see Ballbaron is having a discount since they could not attend TPF. I needed some new balls so a great time to buy. I have games that need both shiny chrome with no magnets and some with magnets. Price is great so have to admit that. I checked the online store and saw that if you order 26 or more they come oiled which I like for preserving the new balls. I ordered 26 of the shiny chrome balls and 26 of the regular. See the pics of how they arrived I have 2 bags that both ripped and a box of mixed balls....go figure. They look the same in my opinion so visually no way to be sure which is which. Some bigger bags probably would not have ripped and I wouldn’t be making this post. I am not here to say don’t buy from Ballbaron by any means...we need good suppliers of pinballs and they seem to fill that void. But if they see this maybe in the future they can simply package orders in slightly larger bags so they don’t rip. I am now left with about 30 balls I have no clue if they are chrome or standard carbon. It makes a difference which game I put them in and to others that need both types. Just some feed back. Maybe the other option is to just make 2 different orders about a week or so apart so if the bag rips they won’t get mixed. Pain in the ass to do multiple orders but will do that in the future I guess to avoid this in the future.
