Saluc Aramith Red Circle Cue Ball
This cue ball is engraved with a red circle. Many people perceive the quality of this ball being higher than that of our plain white replacement cue ball, but that is just not true. One advantage of the red circle cue ball is that it makes a great practice ball. You can use the circle as a target, and then compare your chalk mark with the position of the circle to see if you indeed stroke properly and hit the cue ball where you intended. The ball is regulation 2-1/4" in diameter and is regulation weight.
Founded in 1923, Saluc was at that time a chemical industry specialized in tannery products. After 1950, this industry died out and Saluc made a conversion to the billiards balls. Today,Saluc produces and distributes billiard balls under the registered trademark Aramith in more than 85 countries, and has a marketshare of 80 % worldwide. The company is also specialised in the production of industrial balls used in all kind of applications, as well as in 9 pin bowling balls and trackballs. The exportation represents 98% of its activity. One of the major strengths of the company is its upstream integration : Saluc has its own chemical plant, to produce the phenolic resin which gives the exceptionnal characteristics to the finished products. This integration allows the price optimization and quality insurance.
