I've never seen or even known that Head makes balls. How do they play?
I tried them once and wasn't thrilled with them. I bought them b/c they were new, and had 4 balls to the can.
When I play a match with friends we warm up with slightly used balls then we we start the match by opening a new can so as we get the most life out of the balls in match play.
The HEAD No.1 balls seemed to get really fuzzy, quickly. Their bounce quality though was pretty good. IMO, about a 7.5-8 out of 10 for one set. By the end of the set (6-4) they were about done. Hitting was between a 4.5 and 4.0 player with 2-5 shots per person each rally, give or take.
I probably would choose not to buy/play these again. I always make my way back to standard PENN Extra-Duty and Wilson Extra Duty for hardcourt play.
Hope that helps.
Head owns Penn so it's just another variation of a Penn tennis ball in my opinion. They're a "seconds" type of ball in my opinion. Stick with the Penn ATP and Championship balls.
Bingo. Head == Penn
Bleh, never mind then. I'll stick with my cruddy Dunlop balls.
Dunlop makes some of the best tennis balls available. Which ones do you use?
