What's your favourite tennis ball?

I like Wilson US Open, Dunlop Club, Dunlop Fort and Babolat Team.

Yeah, I like the Wilson US Open, Dunlop GPs, & Penn Titaniums. I've played w/some Gammas I liked, but don't recall what they were.

Dunlop Roland Garros, Slazenger Wimbledon.

I should have mentioned those! I use Slazenger Wimbledon in the summer when it's grass court season. :)

Tretorn Micro X Pressureless- best I've ever played with. They last so long and play like new for the duration of their life- definitely worth the price for me.

The $2 can of Penn extra duty felt is what I buy to play matches with.

I liked Penn balls when they were made in the USA. Now I really don't have a favorite.

Dunlop Grand Prix and Dunlop Championship, you just can't beat the durability.

hey flashfire, your babolat frames don't play alike do they?

We use them in clay courts :oops:

Yeap, not easy to find around but got great experience with them when someone got a couple of cans.

Wilson US Open is great at first. But in 30 min or so of blasting, it wears out. Really great though.

Dunlop Roland Garros, Slazenger Wimbledon.

I love the Slazenger Wimbledon ball. But then again I love everything tennis related that Slazenger makes.

Wilson, ProPenn, I would have to say I really like prince balls.

I do like Penn Tribute balls to use for practice. $5 for 9 balls is a pretty good price I think.

Where do you find Babolat tennis balls?

Prince, better than Dunlop Grand Prix.

But the best are Slazenger, and Dunlop Fort.

only recently tried Dunlop Fort.

Initial knock was no good.

But they seemed to get better on second or third outing.

(And before you accuse me of using flat ones I am referring to using these in practice only! :) )

Dunlop Fort or Wilson US Open are my current favourites.

For me, it's Dunlop -> Wilson -> Penn. The Dunlop seems to hold pressure longer than the other two.

I use Dunlop Grand Prix ones but I notice that there is a new Dunlop ball called A player that is a bit more expensive.

Has anyone tried this and know whether this is the better than the Grand Prix? Is this just Dunlop Fort renamed for the US market?

I like Prince Tours if I'm paying the bill, if your paying I like anything that's new.

Dunlop do indeed "rebrand" for different markets so it's not a bad assumption. I believe Fort is also available in the US though no? There is now "Fort Elite" over here in Europe also. Not sure what the difference is. Feel the same to play with to me.

Dunlop GP
Slaz Wimbledon Hi-Vis
Prince Tour

Pro Penn



Wilson US Open

I have not used a 'championship' (low-end ball) in years.

Has anyone tried the babolat or Volkl ball? I haven't. Maybe it's their reputation in other aspects of tennis eqt, but I am guessing those are high quality.

Volkl makes a tennis ball now? Where can you buy that at?

Dunlop GrandPrix's. Although I have had bad luck with them recently...about a month back I had one explode on me during a point the first day it was used (lost all pressure), this happened again a couple weeks back although it was probably the third day it had been used so most balls would have been completely dead by then anyways. This is the only pressurized ball I have had this happen with.

Explode? Literally torn-open? Wow, never seen or heard of that before. :shock:

No, not torn open, just made a loud thud, and when the point ended we checked the ball and it had zero pressure. Just like a really really dead ball.
