    Your favorite balls?


    I personally like dunlop. They feel a little heavier than the wilsons i'm accustomed to.....Like little rockets!...

    Slazenger Wimbledon balls are my choice, but you don't have that option.
    For wilson, only certain balls are good. some of them are too light and too bouncy. it is not popular afterall.

    Dunlop Championship balls are great, do not use them for dubs cuz guys complain they are too fast. Helium balls. Dunlop Grand Prix balls are the best, guys complain they are too hard and heavy. So I use what everyone else uses, Penn soft court or Pro Penns.

    Penn, but only because they sell the 4 can of ATP championship Penn cheaper than any of the can of 3 balls. 1.89 isn't bad for a can of 4.

    Anyone try the prince balls? Any opinions? Would be nice since no one uses them so it's easy to identify balls when playing with others around.

    Penn ATP are excellent, plus won't mix them up with other courts. However, not available locally, must be ordered.
