what is your most used tennis ball brand?
Best forum for this type of question is Other Equipment:
Fool. You didn't even list Dunlop, the only decent ball made.
This is a common question. Since Dunlop was not mentioned Others will probably be the most picked.
dunlop all the way!
yeah. go others. :roll:
what does the number mean on a ball?
How can you not put Dunlop on there?
zackly'....how could you??
Athletic Works (AKA Walmart) balls. They're cheaper than dirt.
They don't bounce very high and they bounce erratically, but I like them b/c I can pretend I'm playing on a grass court.
They're there so you don't get your balls mixed up with somone else's.
That's what I call a thread-stopper.
Penn - because they are the only balls not made in an Asian country where dirt-cheap slave labor is taken advantage of.
All other brands of balls are made in such countries.
I've been to the Head-Penn ball factory in Phoenix. Lots of balls.
Penn from Costco, because they're cheap.
haha word. i got my balls from there, too.
Dunlop Fort / Slazenger Ultra Vis or Open
I once told someone that the number was the power rating of the ball and that 4 was the most powerful and now this guy won't play with anything but 4's lol
Haha.. That's great.. So did you talk him into giving you all the other numbers from the case? People at the sports outlet must get a kick out of the guy rooting through all the cans looking for 4s..
I can see him now shaking the cans trying to see the number. I also had him going by taking a can of 1's and a marker and changing it to a 7. He caught on to me though but I had him going for a few minutes wanting to know where I got them. Some people are so gullable....... I love it.
same, you can get a huge bucket REALLY cheap
penn here. i buy them wholesale. cheap cheap balls, about a dollar each
Sounds like I need to check out BJs.. We opted for BJs over Costco for some reason, so I hope I don't find yet another reason to regret that decision!
