    Quoted from vaevictis:

    PBL is out of stock again

    I just placed an order with PBL on Monday with 20 very-needed balls as part of it, and then I read this! Luckily I must have gotten some of the last ones, as a frantic call confirmed my order as checked off and packed up.

    I just ordered a set of the Ball Baron balls based on the recommendations above. Ordered a couple dozen of PBL's oooh_shiny balls a few months ago, after they finally became available after a long wait, and when they arrived I was super bummed about the quality. They were nothing like PBL's previous balls, they practically looked they the had already been used.

    Quoted from mrgregb123:

    Anyone looking for the most insanely shiny balls they've ever seen.....
    I just got my order in from The Ball Baron. Purchased from this listing: ebay.com link ยป Pinball Replacements G10 Mirror Finish 10 Ten 1 1 16 Premium Chrome Balls
    I've purchased from PBL, Titan, Marco, etc. etc. and these are easily the shiniest balls I've ever gotten. They are rated as G10 so that isn't surprising. Titan's were the highest rated I've used prior and those are G16 (lower # = more shine). These are burn-your-eyeballs-off-shiny.
    I don't know this Ball Baron guy but I can vouch for them. 10 for $1.39 ea shipped free and I got them in 2 days. Hope that helps anyone looking for shiny ones.

    I received my eBay order from the Ball Baron last week, very fast shipping, and these balls are very high quality with a mirror finish. VERY impressed, will definitely order from him again.

    Hate to say it because I love PBL, but after waiting many months for the last batch of oooh_shiny balls to come back in stock, I ordered a couple dozen earlier this year and was very disappointed. They looked like used balls, even just to the naked eye. Nowhere near mirror finish, nothing like they used to be.

    Has anyone ordered any of the G100-G200 balls from Ball Baron on Ebay? Curious to see a photo of the surface, and to see how the quality of the finish stacks up against their amazing G10 balls.
