Topic: Cleaning Fakini Billiard Balls

Well, I've decided to move over to the Fakini Balls and I really like them. One problem I've noticed though is that the balls and shell came nice and shiny. After a few hours of use the balls are flat but the shell is still shiny. I've washed them, used Armorall, but to no avail.

Any of you Fakini experts got any suggestions? Thanks for your help.

Steven: I have several sets of Fakini balls and they all have the same problem. I've never found a way to bring back the shine to balls and ended up handling the shell a lot to make the shell dull. I'll be interested in any other posts that come in if there is a way to make the rubber shine again. One consolation is that from a short distance, the difference isn't noticeable.

This happens to every fakini set. Once the balls become a satin finish they seem to look better on stage.
