    I just discovered a bunch of unopened/unused balls. The "can" has lost some pressure since it is easier to press in than a new can. The balls are unused, so I'm wondering whether I can use one of those ball savers to "pump up" the balls to bring them back up to "as new" status.

    I thought I would ask here before buying one of those gizmos. If the verdict is "don't bother" then I won't waste my time/money on one. If does work, it would be useful since I've got about a dozen cans of balls.

    Thanks.

    Yeah they claim they can repressurize balls. But it takes forever. Expect 3+ months to get the balls into shape!

    I put dead balls into the ball saver and let it sit there for a year. Then decided to take them out a year later and they were still dead. They work well for preventing balls from loseing more pressure, but not so well for revival. I suggest getting the one which you can store I believe at least 50 balls in a single canister bucket. That may actually work.
