Which are better in a tennis tutor 2 ball machine? do the pressureless balls act and bounce like a regular ball?

thanks

I have used both but prefer the pressureless as they last longer. It is important that the balls are "beat-up" a bit before putting them in the machine. Brand new balls will leave some kind of slippery film on the wheels which will lead to inconsistent throws. This is one of the reasons also that I like pressureless...if you use regular balls by the time they are used enough to go into the machine they have lost some of their bounce.
