    I prefer the Penn ATP XD. They are cheaper than the Wilson's and, to me, less flyaway feeling. The Wilsons are still a top grade ball though, just a personal preference. Have not played with Dunlop A Players.

    Great. A can of three is perfect for for 3 sets/3 hours, and after that they're good for weeks and weeks as practice balls. Very few duds too, I buy the 24-can case from TW and the consistency is impressive.

    I like the Penn ATPs better than the Wilson US Opens. The Wilsons tend to fuzz up more. The Dunlops are not bad balls but are harder hence earning the name Dunrocks.

    I find the Penn ATP's more consistent than Wilson Extra Duty. Bought a case of US Open's and at least 1/3 of them were duds. The Penns are great, and a good value.

    This almost seems one-sided.

    My vote goes to Penn ATP (compared to Wilson). Love it during sets & keep the balls for future hitting!

    Never played with Dunlop A
