    Between the baseline and netcord.
    Absolutely playable! The XXX means that they didn't pass QC as in the labeling was off center or something cosmetic.

    Usually those balls are smaller in size, thinner felt, more uneven gluing. They play pretty much the same to me, but they don't last as long. Penn coach, Penn XXX, etc. Aren't all that bad.
