Kelly Fisher Signs with Cyclop

Fisher Kelly PicMany-time world champion Kelly Fisher is proud to announce that she has recently signed a new sponsorship deal with the Cyclop Ball Company.

Cyclop, based out of Shanghai, China, has been making quite a splash in the pool world in the last two years, and the addition of the British great is aimed at taking the company to even higher levels.

The Cyclop balls have been attracting attention due to their content of highly configured Phenolic resin, allowing for durability while keeping their shine and color longer than the standard pool balls. With their distinctive pastel colors mixed in with traditional colors, Cyclop balls have become the billiard ball of choice in tournaments around Asia, and are regularly being seen in tournaments the world over. Cyclop have recently signed a five year contract with the Chinese Billiard and Snooker Association, which means Cyclop will be the official balls used for all pool events from 2014-2019, including World Pool and Billiard Association(WPA) tournaments, held in China.

"We are proud to have partnered with Kelly Fisher," said Cyclop Chairman Adrian Wang. "She is a great player and ambassador for the sport. Kelly is very personable, she is very famous in China and all around the world. We feel she will help our company and product grow.'

"I am really happy to join with Cyclop," remarked Fisher, the former World Number one, World 9-ball and World 10-ball champion. "Their company has grown rapidly and they are well respected in the industry. They have a quality product with a unique look and I am proud to be a part of their team."
