    Maybe, it is also true that those balls are total garbage.

    Yeah, but if they are chocolate champion-chip they have an important redeeming quality. Agreed that they are not good for tennis. :)

    I'd love to know what happened to their extra-duty felt balls because they weren't always this bad. (They weren't always great either though). Can't play 3 full sets of doubles (2 hours-or so on an outdoor hard court) without at least 1 ball's name & number being totally unrecognizable. Yes, we're all hard hitters, but still.

    They're cheap and they're everywhere. Got a giant case of them sitting in the closet thanks to Costco.

    I've rarely had matches where I broke a tennis ball but everytime it happened they were Penn Championships.
