Only few players select balls.. maybe only top 40-50! rest dont even care..they may notice the erratic ball while playing!

I hope it isn't as big a difference as they make it to seem by testing two boxes of ball before picking one. Otherwise whats the point of spending so much on a nice box of 3 stars if you can't even expect em all to be good?

Yeah, I never really had the luxury of going through a bunch of premium 3 stars to pick my own. Balls in the price range I usually just buy a 3 pack or something and accept what I get.
