Question about new blue circle cue ball?

I just bought a new Brunswick blue circle cue ball and it is very very
white. The blue circle that came with my Centenials is 6 years old and
has some scratches and is off white in color. My red circle cue ball
is also off white in color and I believe that it was always off white.
I don't remember if the original blue circle was ever as white as this
replacement ball is. If anyone out there has bought Centenials lately
can you verify that the newer blue circle cue ball is snow white.

I had several sets of Centennials, all with Blue circle cue balls,
 back in the stone age - IIRC all started out ultra white then yellowed
somewhat over time

I'm guessing normal.

I notice that the white in both the blue circle cue ball and the object
balls yellows over time.

I think the yellowing actually adds a bit of character to the set.

Otto--thinks Pros and Centennials are both good sets--just depends on which
design you like.

The Brunswick name ain't what it use to be.  The quality had dropped off the
map unless you spend over 4500 on a table. They makes a worse table than the
old honeycomb slateete or whatever it was, made by SEARS!  Check out their
table called the BRISTOL 2. Real piece of work that table is.

Otto,
     I also posted this question over at CCB.  I guy there bought
Centenials two weeks ago and the cue ball is bright white but the
white portions of the striped balls are off-white.  You'd think that
whatever shade of white, they would all be the same but the cue ball
is definitely whiter.

May have to do with cue ball age.

I took a look at mine.

4 balls:

Heavily used Blue circle cue ball(4 years old) that came with my set. It is
yellowed. I have not used it in over a year.

I have a red circle cue ball that has been used the past year. It is
yellowed.

I have a red circle cue ball that is over a year old but has been in the
box(brand new). It is yellowed.

I have a red circle cue ball which I received for Xmas. It is white.

I have no idea what this means in terms of the set you were discussing but I
am guessing that the white phenolic yellows over time whether used or not.
Ideally, the cue ball and object balls woud be born the same day and kept
together as a set.

Of course that is all mute with the Centennials if you are like many people
and subsititute the red circle ball for the blue circle ball.
