    Tretorn Micro-X are a really good for a ball machine. Weigh the same as any other ball and bounce nearly as well even at 40 degrees farenheit.

    I found the Tretorns to feel a bit harder and heavier than standard balls but I guess they would be pretty good in a ball machine.

    Maybe it's the hardness then...something about them feels a bit different.

    I think it is because they are filled with what looks like tiny
    plastic snow flakes - so they do not compress as much as
    the gas balls when you hit them with your racket. And since
    they never loose pressure they keep the same bounce
    year after year...

    You get used to the Micro-X quite quickly and it's a nice
    ball to play with.

    (They actually bounce slightly more after a while when the felt
    has worn off - think playing with a rubber ball :)
