it was a 4" mars ball from dube and i was moderately excited but when i opened it up i immediately noticed that is had big ugly...like...cream swirls in it! i emailed them but so far no response. i know the balls are pretty cheap for the size and that its a mix but on their site it states it as being almost as good. nothing about "ball may contain swirls". erg. there must be hundreds of these post in these forums. i wonder if i put this in the wrong one... hm.

Terrible shame
Hopefully they'll refund your money or send a clear ball.

Personally, I've just about given up on Dube. The 4" stage balls they have now are worthless. Uneven balance, flat spots, and a seam that might as well be considered a ring. I've slowly switched to Renegade and Neon Husky for most things.

about time! a few days later and they responded. sweet. i just have to send the ball back and theyre already sending me a new one. the person there was saying that that kind of quality was unexceptable and they opted to pay for the shipping to them and cover the shipping to me (for the new one) as well. thank you dube. for sending me a swirl free ball. sweeet. caus for 50 somethin bucks i expect moderately good quality. caus lets face it, if i wanted a ball like that i couldve gone to neon husky for their discount balls
i went with dube caus the shipping was super fast and reasonably priced. and the ball is uv by nature which is a plus

Just a side thought - any resin type ball will never have the clarity of the EL balls - that is why they are less expensive - from the looks of the photo - looks like a Chinese ball that was transported wrapped in the commercial grade saran wrap they use - contains a preservative material that gives a sticky surface and appears as blemishes on the ball. Use a little Novus #2 and it should clean up quite nice
