Don't get me wrong. Even tho' I presented the shortcomings of the Penn Champs in posts #12 and #19, I still consider them a decent ball -- but definitely not as good as the premium balls that I listed. I do like the Penn Champs on a cold night because, unlike most other balls, they do not feel like rocks and tend to bounce a bit better cold than other balls.
I also consider the Penn Champs to be better balls than the Wilson Champs. However, as far as other Championship balls go, I would pick the Prince or Dunlop over Penn.
