    I buy the hard court Penn extra duty balls from Costco at about $2 per can. Regular duty balls should be cheaper but the warehouse stores don't carry them. Why do you guys use?

    Wilson Championships are the best of the cheaper clay court balls.

    I don't thinkthat going for the cheep ones is a good idea. I can say that i have tried all balls on clay and right now the best one i Dunlop. Their clay court ball is long lasting, not to expensive and will give you great performance on the red dirt:)

    Tennis balls affect your game just like strings etc. It's a matter of personal taste. If you like the current balls you are playing with and you perfom, why change? If you want to save some money, buy cans in bulk with friends. It can save you a few bucks and you always have a spare set in case of emergencies.

    I used to think Dunlop Fort were the best claycourt balls, but after using Babolat RG Clay court or RG All-court balls, I haven't looked back.

    OMG!!! YES!!! By far the best ball I have ever hit with is the RG All-Court balls. Haven't tried the clay court version though. How do they compare to the all-court?

    The all-court felt a little firmer, less spongy. The difference were hardly noticeable.

    I used to like the Prince clay court balls best but the quality control seemed to go down as they approached bankruptcy. Now I'm liking Prince Marathon. They fuzz up the least.

    If the difference is hardly noticeable then I will stick with the All-Court. Its hard to find the clay court version online. Finding it in the US is practically impossible.
