    I'm using Silverjets for the first time, and these balls are NICE. Are there better out there, or similar for less? I think I paid $12-18 for the tube of 5. What are you using in your home collection?

    Pinball life balls $1-1.50 a ball depending on quantity

    Thinking of ordering these for my X Files. In the description it said it should be ok with most games with magnets. X files only has one magnet. Do you recommend getting these balls for this game?

    Thanks!

    so since pinballs are basically repackaged ball bearings - anybody try something like these

    Did this and used them in My CV. It took about 5 plays for anomalies to begin. It didn't take me long to remove the balls and watch them stick to each other. I guess I have a hard head and have to learn by experience. And learn I did!

    I see another guy got them and they had no problems whatsoever. Probably should have gave them a second chance. Oh well.

    I bought some of those BC balls from Amazon and they were great. Must have been a bad batch?

    I buy ninja pinballs in ultra polish. They are the absolute best.
