I agree that sil-x balls should not be looked at as a replacement for
Russians, as they are very different.
They should, however, be viewed as an excellent replacement and
improvement over STAGE balls. They look great in the air and are very
visually pleasing. The liquid inside is enough to change the action to a
very slight russian effect, and does reduce the roll. That said, they are
pretty unforgiving to collisions. I regard them as great balls for
performing, and for cleaning up already solid patterns. I do not use them
for learning new numbers, for the reasons stated above.
They are really great balls though. Worth the dough.
