Set of five (5) Polaris Carbon Steel Pinballs
When the magnetic features in your machines demand a different ball.
NOTE: Polaris carbon pinballs, no matter how much they are professionally polished, do not have the ultra shine of the more expensive pinballs and will have more of a satin finish. The weight and roundness are exactly on spec for a pinball. Carbon balls are also softer in nature than chrome balls and will scratch faster than chrome.
Having a different molecular structure, these balls won’t measure up to the chrome balls in appearance but will give you much longer lasting play in a machine with magnets. ALL CARBON BALLS ARE MADE OUTSIDE THE USA. The US manufacturers all contract with foreign sources to make carbon steel balls for the secondary market as they cannot be used for high stress, low friction or low noise mechanical applications.
Measures 1-1/16″ and weighs 2.9 oz.
ABOUT MAGNETISM: If a machine has aggressive magnet usage, there is still a small chance the ball may become magnetized over time. Polaris balls are designed to resist this magnetization far longer than chrome balls. However, be aware that some machines feature long periods of sustained magnet usage and no ball can stay totally ‘neutral’ forever.
Balls are shipped with a thin oil coating and require cleaning in Isopropyl Alcohol and polishing with a dry cloth or an old cotton t-shirt.
