    What is the best ball for durability and retention of pressure (keeping bounce)?

    I like the Dunlop Grand Prix They don't fuzz up as much as Penns and they have a nice bounce and last

    How do Penns compare in quality to the rest? I thought they were the "#1 ball in the world" haha

    lol...come on....and the flexpoint rackets are supposed to bend at 3 and 9...haha

    i got a case of dunlop ptr grand prixs...and im very surprised at how long these balls last... i've tried wilson championship (red can) and thought those lasted long...but these by far outast them in durability. after 3 hitting sessions...they're still good to go, and felt isnt too bad either.

    Penns just fuzz up way too fast.

    in my experience when the ball is new the propenn feels the best, but loses pressure after a set or two, the dunlop grand prix is the next best feeling ball and last for a really long time, i'll grab one out of my ball hopper that i've used numerous times and it will feel brand new.

    My favourite tennis balls are the slazenger ultra vis... and Dunlop fort or grand prix. However the most durable ball that i have ever play with are the Tretorn balls. They just refuse to go flat and can be played with alot longer than any other ball ive tried. They also play good, the only reason i choose not to play with them all the time is the price, a bit on the expensive side.

    Dunlop abzorbers last a long time. Though their pricey.
