Best Tennis Balls
 
I play on hard courts and I prefer using regular duty balls. I want to know which of these balls are durable and maintain their bounce and won't get flat too much. Which balls do you guys think is the best?

Penn Marathon tend to keep their bounce well.

Penn ATP balls are swell, http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/Penn...D-ATPRD24.html

Which one is better? Penn Championship, Penn ATP, Wilson Chamiopnship, or Wilson US Open?

I like the Wilson US Opens for their consistency and feel but they do tend to wear out after a couple of sessions. Penn Champs are very lively out of the can but then seem to go dead once the felt wears off.

Has anyone else tried the wilson championship or the penn ATP? Which one will maintain its bounce and won't go dead quickly?

Penn ATP are very good. The best ones I've ever tried though are either Babolat All court or Tecnifibre x-one.

Penn extra duty maintain longer than wilson.
Great balls for hard

To be Frank, any of the regular-duty balls are light and bounce great. Its the covers, like Victor Martinez in Boston, forgetaboutit

Actually, I feel the complete opposite. They feel heavy, less lively, and dead on the spot...

penn marathons extra duty - never tried regular

Wilson US open balls are now the BEST. Penn ATP tour ball used to be the best but now US open balls have past them

Slazengers Wimbledon ones.

Or in Europe Dunlop Brilliance.

I wish the Prince balls were still available. I really liked those balls but only used them a handful of times.

SStrikerR 10-25-2013 10:58 PM

I use Penn ATP, and like them a lot. They bounce great for a solid amount of time. The thing is, once they start to die it happens FAST.

Wilson Champs are not very good balls. Penn Champs are somewhat better but go soft and noticeably lose their bounce by the 2nd set. There also seems to be one substandard ball in every can of Penn Champs -- sometimes it is a cosmetic reject and other times one ball does not bounce as well as the other two.

Penn ATP and Wilson US Open are both premium (professional grade) balls. Either one of these should be better choices than either Championship products. Unless you are playing on clay, be sure to get the extra duty balls rather than the regular duty balls. The Dunlop Grand Prix or Slazenger Wimbledon balls, if you can get them, would be even better options.

However, your best bet would be Prince Tour (extra duty) balls.

Prince has heard you and has brought back their Tour balls:

Tretorn Micro X - they're pressureless so won't lose their bounce. You can can quite literally hit them until the fuzz comes off.

SystemicAnomaly 10-29-2013 04:05 PM

^ The bounce of a new pressureless ball is usually somewhat lower than that of a new pressurized ball. At higher altitudes the difference can be even greater. Pressureless ball also feel harder than conventional balls -- they probably deliver more shock to the arm. This can result in greater shoulder crunch, elbow crunch & wrist crunch. Many players with TE or GE cannot stand playing with pressureless balls for this reason.

Head Radical are my tennis balls of choice. Cheap and durable. Tried Head ATP. Great out the can but die extremely quick.

LeeD 10-29-2013 07:12 PM

I can't abide by any Wilson or Penn tennis balls.
I use DunlopHardCourtHDChamps only.
Wilson balls, my serve is basically unreturnable at my 4.0 level, when it goes in. That's not a fun way to play tennis.
And of course, I can't return my opponent's serves....:-?:-?
