    So I know there are millions of these but it seems ‘oh so shinys’ are gone and the last batch of titans I got were worse than stock balls...

    Anyone have luck with anything else (anything new maybe???) out there? Looking for balls good with pins that have magnets mostly.

    Flame on to those who flame and thanks to those who don’t lol.

    Ball baron are great.

    Ball Baron’s ninja. Some say it has a hard time in games with magnets, but I’ve run them in my shadow for a while with zero issues.

    Cheaper and nicer than the silver jets Marco sells.

    Another vote for Ball Baron Ninja.

    How does Ball Baron package their shipments? PinballLife used to individually package their super shinys in little bags, but Titan puts them all in one big bag so they grind together during shipping and scratch each other up. Marco's little tubes aren't much better.

    Thank you for this thread. I have been wondering if there were any other options now that the “oh so shiny” ones are gone.

    I bought Ninja balls a few weeks back.

    Out of a Dozen, I think I got 4 that were round and had matching weights.

    I have real bad luck finding round balls for my machines. Doesn't matter where I get them, either. About 2 of 3 are always eggs.

    Ball Barron ninjas for games without magnets. Marco's 5 packs for everything else.

    I've had bad luck even with Ball Barron's non-chromes in games with even a little magnet useage.

    Another vote for ball barons ninja pinballs. They do have "non-chrome" that are nice as well, for games with magnets.

    Quoted from Chalkey:

    Silver jets?

    Silverjets are not carbon core, not good for magnets.
