Is moving up 0.1 inch (1/2 cm) a big difference in handling?



It depends what your body's fingers can handle. You don't want to cripple your hands, or perform the needed moves looking like you are fumbling. In other words, will it look effortless or like you are struggling. How tall are you, that has a lot of do with what ball size you can handle. In other words large hands with long fingers.

I am 172.5 inches. I have small skinny hands. I made a 1.7inch ball up by tightly taping around a pingis ball until it reached 1.7 inches in diameter. I did the mark wilson test and I could perform thr entire mark wilson routine using 1.7 inch balls. Size vise I am pretty confident that I can handle the balls atleast for the basic moves for the Bond Lee moves I do not know. When it comes to weight I have no idea. Since I'm used to pingis balls.

What's the "Mark Wilson test?" Mark is a dear friend of mine, but I'm not familiar with that.

I just called it that. But in the Complete Course Mark teaches a billiard ball routine and says that the largest possible ball that you can perform the following routine whith is the right size to use. He then teaches a billiard ball routine. He said something along the lines of this it seems to me to be a good test to know what size to use.
