Fool. You didn't even list Dunlop, the only decent ball made.

This is a common question. Since Dunlop was not mentioned Others will probably be the most picked.

Athletic Works (AKA Walmart) balls. They're cheaper than dirt.

They don't bounce very high and they bounce erratically, but I like them b/c I can pretend I'm playing on a grass court.

They're there so you don't get your balls mixed up with somone else's.

That's what I call a thread-stopper.

Penn - because they are the only balls not made in an Asian country where dirt-cheap slave labor is taken advantage of.

All other brands of balls are made in such countries.

They're there so you don't get your balls mixed up with somone else's.I once told someone that the number was the power rating of the ball and that 4 was the most powerful and now this guy won't play with anything but 4's lol :D

Haha.. That's great.. So did you talk him into giving you all the other numbers from the case? People at the sports outlet must get a kick out of the guy rooting through all the cans looking for 4s..

People at the sports outlet must get a kick out of the guy rooting through all the cans looking for 4s..I can see him now shaking the cans trying to see the number. I also had him going by taking a can of 1's and a marker and changing it to a 7. He caught on to me though but I had him going for a few minutes wanting to know where I got them. Some people are so gullable....... I love it.

Sounds like I need to check out BJs.. We opted for BJs over Costco for some reason, so I hope I don't find yet another reason to regret that decision!
