Our cheap head pro uses those for our annual club tournament. You have to throw them away after 2 sets and get another can. Sigh...

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.
I prefer the Wilson Champs over the Penn Champs but to each his own. I've never noticed the Penn Champs to bounce much in any weather.
