tennis balls
 
Need some thoughts. I have been using Prince XD Tour balls for the past 6-7 years and absolutely loved them--durability, longevity, bounce, etc. As many may know, they're not available presently. What is the ball closest to the top line Prince ball? I'm an intermediate (3.5) older player ( 69) who plays primarily on hard courts. Thanks in advance.

Nothing is quite as bouncy as those Prince balls. Maybe Wilson Championship is the closest.

Wilson USO bonces better than Championship and is very close to Prince in term of bounce, I can't really tell which one retain the high bounce longer, but USO lose felt faster though.

IMO USO is Wilson's best Championship is just tier 2.

The reason I say that is because the hard court version of the US Open ball tends to fluff up quite a bit and then its playability changes. Out of the can, I'd say the US Open ball. The championships are smaller and lighter so they seemed to kick up off the court more. The bottom line is that Prince made the highest bouncing balls.

Maybe it's string or surface we play on, for me USO ED don't fluff up, it just start to lose felt very early.

I agree Prince tour is awesome, a little on stiffer side though.
