Doesn't the wax wear off pretty quickly, so the balls' slipperiness changes constantly until they're unwaxed again?

I need to walk away from the computer. The juvenile in me needs to evacuate any thread that has wax and balls in the title.

Is it a standard practice to wax pool/billiard balls? I really don't know but I did come across this a while back. From the WPA equipment specifications:

"16. BALLS AND BALL RACK
All balls must be composed of cast phenolic resin plastic and measure 2 (+.005) inches [5.715 cm (+ .127 mm)] in diameter and weigh 5 to 6 oz [156 to 170 gms]. Balls should be unpolished, and should also not be waxed. Balls should be cleaned with a towel or cloth free of dirt and dust, and may also be washed with soap and water. Balls contaminated with any slippery substance treated with a polishing or rubbing compound and/or waxed must be cleansed and dewaxed with a clean cloth moistened with diluted alcohol before play."

Note: I use Aramith polish any way.
