I think his other comment is accurate, for better or worse. I think they
can be less forgiving for numbers, because when you get a collision of any
sort it is extremely difficult to recover. But depending on your outlook,
that isn't necessarily bad. In the end what I've concluded is that I try
to use them for 5 or less. I still get shorter runs of 5 with them than I
do my russians, but I think they are "keeping me honest" and making me
clean up my pattern. In a 5 ball endurance contest (which I'll lose 100%
of the time anyway ;-), I'll use my russians, but when training and
practicing I use Sil-X. With 6 or more I still use russians, but I also
use 2.5 inch balls instead of 3 inch balls. In theory it would probably be
good for me in the long run to stick with the Sil-X for 6 or 7, but it
just makes me so hopeless in the present that it isn't even fun to try heh
