I've seen a few posts from other Pinsiders stating things like "the balls that ship with NIB Sterns are junk" and "using low quality balls is bad for your pin".
Can anyone clarify what is meant by ball quality, and what pinballs are better than others?
Pinball life sells "regular" 1-1/16" pinballs and also Premium Ultra Gloss 1-1/16" Pinballs. Are both of these better than the balls that are included with NIB Stern games? Are there other, better pinballs I should be using?
What makes a ball higher quality/better than other ones?
Note that it is ridiculously hard to search for this topic here or via Google, thanks to the balls that are inside pinball machines being commonly called "pinballs".
