So Im pulling the trigger on a ball machine, next step is to fill it.
Give me your opinions on what pressureless balls you have used, likes, dislikes etc.

When I got my machine I bought two buckets of Penn practice balls. They seem to hold up pretty well. I also got some Gamma practice balls. Those things were totally dead in just a couple of weeks.

Tretorn Micro-X are the only pressureless balls that are worth a *****.

I use Slazenger Pressureless balls.
Cheap, easy to find and not a bad hit.

Be careful with perssureless balls. They are extremely stiff and your arm might regret it later.

Penn pressureless 48 for <$30 at Sports Chalet. Great bang for the buck.

Ditto here on Tretorn Micro-X. They are hard on the arm, though.

I pretty much use any pressureless ball that I can find haha. Works out pretty well, never had any problems. But of course if you want it to feel more like a pressurized ball, Micro-X balls are best.

Micro-X by a landslide, and mix in a few random other balls to give some real variety to the shots....

i use slazengers cause they "were" at my Dicks sporting goods. they sold for 30 for 48 balls but for some reason they replaced them with the crappy gamma balls....

i am thinking about getting different color balls for drill purpose.

Gamma makes a two tone ball for practice. You should be able to find them at nearly any tennis store/outlet.

i keep reading that gamma isn't so good, quality-wise

anyone know a good place to buy tretorn micro-x balls? i called rockee mtn sports and they don't have deals for retail customers.
