Non-magnetic carbon steel pinball measuring 1-1/16″, 2.9oz.- standard finish...ideal for games with magnets.
Regularly check your game's ball(s) for any scratches or nicks, these will quickly wear your playfield! Don't forget to wax your playfield too (if not Diamond Plate or clear-coated)!
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 Ninja pinball and will have more of a satin finish. The weight and roundness are exactly on spec for a pinball. Chromes are 2.8 oz (80 grams)and carbons are 2.9 oz (81 grams). Carbon balls are also softer in nature than chrome balls and will scratch faster than chrome. Please take this into consideration if you have become used to the look of the Ninja or standard chrome ball because carbon, having a different molecular structure, 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.
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 Ninja balls. However, be aware that some machines feature long periods of sustained magnet usage and no ball can stay totally ‘neutral’ forever.
