    Around BerkeleyCa. most guys prefer DunlopHDHardCourtChamps. They are heaviest ball, fly the slowest, last the longest.

    Try Tecnifibre X-One balls if you can find them there.

    Not sure what's available locally for you, but perhaps just treat yourself to a brand you've never used before and try it out. We can all recommend something that *we* like, but that doesn't necessarily mean you will enjoy them.

    But here's my rec anyway. Gamma Pro Tour, kinda a heavier ball. I like it more during warm weather. Cold weather is a different story.

    Funny, on a whim I just bought two cases of those (Regular Duty) from one of the sports box stores (they had 30% off + free shipping). Sounds like I might like them as I prefer heavier balls.

    Hmm, that didn't come out right...

    Just remember to keep those heavy balls warm.

    Is there a ball with the name, Wilson 2? Is this really a Wilson Championship that just happens to have a 2 printed on it?

    Are the Dunlop 'A Player' balls worth it? I can get 6 cans for $18+ship. Or I could go the safe route and get Grand Prix balls, 12 cans for $33+ship. I don't really need that many balls though. I've been using the Dunlop Championship balls for the longest time. What would the upgrade buy me?
