what is the heaviest tennis ball?
 
The Pro Penns or Wilson US open?

zapvor 11-02-2012 07:23 PM

dunlop ones are heavier

MikeHitsHard93 11-02-2012 07:45 PM

Between those two, pro penn are heavier and better.

LeeD 11-02-2012 07:56 PM

Yeah..
1. DunlopHDHardcourts.
2. Any Penn
3. Wilsons, especially if you want to impress people with your serving prowess.

zapvor 11-02-2012 08:16 PM

no man pro penns are light. thats why i like playing with them. the wilsons us open are light but not lighter

Dunrocks are heaviest.

Good thing about Dunrocks.... you hit a first serve into the body, and it's got penetration.
Bad thing about Dunrocks....your opponent crushes one at you, almost taking your 10 oz racket out of your hands.
What goes around, comes around.
With Wilson's, it feels like you're Conan the Barbarian, smacking the heck out of the ball with impunity.

the volkl is lightest

I usually use the Dunlops. They certainly play better if there's a breeze. I have played with lighter balls before and having to change your feet at the last second because of a gust of wind is not fun.

Lee makes a good point with the heavier ball though, with the moral being...strike first and strike hard!

Dumbrocks.

There is another contestant out there.. the pressureless Tretorn . Platina like feel.

Dunlop Balls last forever.... But they are hard and heavy.

Can somone tell me the difference between light and heavy balls. I struggle with us open wilson and cant keep a ball in for a set.

Whereas love the wilson australian open

LeeD 11-10-2012 12:37 PM

Light...flies long, less knapp, lighter weight, more air pressure.
Heavy, like Dunlops...flies short, more knapp, much more weight, constant lighter air pressure, and when you hit your wide serves, a mishit doesn't get to the net.
