    Quoted from MustangPaul:

    Way to go, I hope it's affordable. Is it just one ball at a time?

    If it works well, and it is showing promise, You'll be able to treat 6-10 balls at a time and even more if I find the right size and thickness of tray to use so I can offer it as a package deal.

    Quoted from ballbaron:

    I will have a new stock of Carbon balls within the next 30 days. You van always visit ballbaron.com and check for inventory updates and read the blog.

    counting the days, pinbud.....I can take a little less shiny for carbon....some of my machines simply can't handle the chrome....

    #453 11 months ago

    Got my ninja chrome balls from ballbaron and yes they are as shiny and nice as you are imagining them to be! Love the balls, got them for my new GoT and soon to be coming in IMDN and will be ording more soon to change out old balls on my other pins.

    Look forward to the shiny carbon balls when those are available for my magnet games.

    Very nice balls ballbaron, found my new ball source!!!

    #454 11 months ago

    It’s def the trough kicker that is taking nicks out of the ball. I sacrificed one of my new ninja chrome balls to it. I’ll have to sand down the edges of it and polish it like every other piece in the game

    I just stocked up on some Ninja Balls
    Getting ready for Pintastic!

    I can finally announce that ball baron.com is fully stocked with Carbon Pinballs: https://ballbaron.com/product/pinball-carbon/
    Standard Chrome Pinballs: https://ballbaron.com/product/pinball-chrome/
    and of course the Ninja: https://ballbaron.com/product/ninja-super-shiny-chrome-pinball-g10/
    No purchase limits.

    #457 10 months ago

    Titan, baby!

    However, I believe they are currently out of stock.

    #458 10 months ago

    Have been playing with Ninjas in TNA. They are very nice and have been holding up very well! Titans are good, but I noticed a difference right away between the Ninjas and the Titans. Will definitely go with Ninjas as my first pick.

    #460 10 months ago

    So carbon are for games with magnets and ninjas are for games that don't have magnets? Is that accurate?

    Just in time. I need some and am looking forward to trying the carbon ones. Just ordered.

    #464 10 months ago

    David/Ball Baron is the best!
    Easy communication/transaction, and stands behind his quality products.

    My poor USPS driver is probably going to get a hernia lugging all that shiny goodness to my door.

    Have you ever tried lifting a box with 300 in it? I have and did.

    #466 10 months ago

    Another order in the books.

    Quoted from MustangPaul:

    Unfortunately no, not 300.
    Mine’s 310...
    I’m sure those extra 10 balls will really pucker the sphincter though.

    Yup the extra 10 will be the killer.

    Same here,I'm new to pinball,so I have no idea how long his supply will last.
    I've been through the golf ball buying frenzy,when Cosco finally restocks their golf balls.They are gone in a matter of hours,so I just gave up on trying to buy them!
    I'm not sure if pinball is the same,but I ordered while the ordering was good.

    Quoted from ralphs007:

    Not to worry, he's in the pinball business so he will always have them in stock.

    #471 10 months ago

    I ordered 5000 just to be safe

    #472 10 months ago
    the deal with carbon vs Chrome is a debate thet may never have a sttled winner. Some guys on here have played hundreds of game with the dialed In game and had no issue with the Ninja becoming magnetized. Ther have found the balls being effected within just a few games. It's a foregone conclusion that the Carbons are less effected by a large percentage but because the carbon ball is softer by it's molecular make up, it won't last as long before becoming dull. I'm working on a demagnetizer and you should ask around the forum to see if you will benefit fron obtaining a trough protector. Hope this helps a little.

    I'm happy to say that the balls I washed the oil off of and shined are very nice. High shine and reflexion. Tell me whaich way you want them. If you're going to store them I suggest leaving the oil on until use. For orders of 10 or less, I clean them up first because I figure a smaller number will probably get put in use right away.

    #475 10 months ago
    Quoted from Mr_Tantrum:

    Titan, baby!
    However, I believe they are currently out of stock.

    I have the Ninja (perfect polish and shine) as well as a great standard chrome ball and a very shiny Carbon ball. All in stock and ready to ship. If my prices aren't the lowest, they are very competitive.
    Contact me at info@ballbaron.com and I'll send you a sample pack of all three.

    Have you ordered yet? I can't match the screen names to the order name, so if you did, thank you and if you haven't, I'm working all weekend so all orders will ship on Monday

    Not yet but will, I have to go through the lineup and get an estimate of how many ninja and carbon balls I need. I havent changed balls in a couple of years and plan to wax all playfileds and change all the balls all at once. The ones I got for the newest pins are amazing though and am very happy with them.

    Just have to motivate myself to cleanup the gameroom so I can start sliding glass off lol!

    Leave mine in the light oil please....I am going to put 6 of the carbon into AlienLE immediately, however....mark

    #480 10 months ago

    What do people use to clean the oil off the balls? I have Naptha and Acetone as well as regular non-ammonia glass cleaner.

    #481 10 months ago

    Just picked up more ninjas from the Baron.

    Sounds like a TV show.

    #485 10 months ago

    Just got some of the carbon balls from Ball Baron. The quality seems decent and comparable to other carbon balls I found on the web. They do not appear as shiny as pinballlife's oh so shiny balls that are no longer being sold. I miss those pinballlife ones.

    #486 10 months ago

    I haven't had a chance to examine the carbons that I just received as I have been figuring out just the right place to display the 4 inch Ninja that came with them.

    I actually got my carbon and Ninjas today....was blown away on how well the carbon cleaned up and shined....staggering, actually...very happy....

    Ok. In all fairness, I probably need to clean them better, but I did rub one down a bit. I have no complaints. It is just that the oh so shiny ones really were exceptional.

    #489 10 months ago

    ballbaron Ordered on Friday afternoon and already received my package. Thanks for the incredibly fast shipping and the balls look great!

    I used isopropyl alcohol ,and it seemed to work pretty good.

    For the record...
    310 balls+box equals:
    A49A3096-3081-44FE-B298-F91964B1D8D7 (resized).jpeg
    I honestly thought it’d be heavier.
    Guess that measly number doesn’t qualify me for the Pinside powerlifter thread.

    I think I could bench press that box of balls if I had to.

    #495 10 months ago

    Have any Dialed In owners put carbon balls in their machines? I installed mine today and the magnet in the theater will catch the ball, but it struggles mightily at pulling it up and around on specific modes (i.e. drone package delivery).

    For those of you that are using the carbon balls in DI, what kind of experiences are you seeing?

    Quoted from ballbaron:

    You have to understand him, he exaggerates a bit, he probably meant 5. Just gets carried away....

    #497 10 months ago

    Ball baron.com

    Ordered Ninja and Carbon, balls were shipped safely and are excellent. Man those Ninjas shine!

    Also got 1” pinballs for my Safecracker. Switched to smaller balls a couple years ago, they really feel “right” in the pin IMO.

    #498 10 months ago

    Anybody try the Ball Baron Ninjas in an Attack From Mars Remake ? Haven' tried any Ninja's yet. Thinking about trying a set of these.
