Hey guys,

Do you know anywhere you can buy single billiard balls? I went to Wal-Mart the other day and they don't sell them in singles, and a whole set is not exactly cheap.

Thanks in advance!

Allan,

The Sears store in my town has both individual cue and 8 balls.

Check a billiards supply house...or a place that sells cues and such. Or I think I have seen billiards stuff at the sporting goods store.

I sell billiard balls in sets of 3. I can be convinced to sell singles if you PM me.

Hi Allan,

I do a lot of billiard ball work. Back in my ambitious days I bought 4 Red #3 balls. I was planning on making a shell, but I never got around to it. Nor did I ever wind up using the balls.

Are you interested in buying them? I'll give you a good deal.

Yes, normal golf balls without shells can be used for a billiard ball routine. Harry Riser has just such a routine in "The feints and Temps of Harry Riser" by Ed Brown. It uses regular (though couloured) golf balls and no shell. Worth checking out.

Harry's routine is really nice. I like it. I prefer fakini golf balls but you can possibly get some "miniature golf" golf balls too for a color variety. Also, aren't they a bit "softer" than a normal golf ball? Maybe not.

Harry's book also has a ] routine as well.

Google billiard balls and you'll come up with a ton of sources.

Almost any balls can be used for multiplying balls routines. Sponge balls, pool balls, golf balls, hi-bounce balls, tennis balls... even Zombies!

Al Leech's Legacy has a nice solid ball routine, and he also gives advice on working when the angles are bad. I used to do it with real pool balls. Greater Magic has a good solid ball routine, as well. Both of the above routines are rainbow routines, but obviously could be done with one color, just eliminating, or overlooking any color change effects.
