    How long new can of tennis balls can last?

    It depends on brand but generally if stored in a cool place a year, year and half. Penn championship extra duty lasted me a year and still was the same as the first can I opened bounce and everything.

    Grip size can't be true!!

    When it comes to handle size which to choose from it all is down to personal preference. Just thinking about it the bigger the grip size the more firmer your grip will be, not loose or whatever. Good really for Eastern grip I would think anyway.. The smaller the grip size (and I mean bit lower...

    Penn Championship Tennis Balls Regular Duty

    Here in the uk we are limited to the Penn balls, and to be honest tennis balls are expensive here. Penn Championship have 2 versions, The Regular duty which has red lettering on the balls and red cap on the cans Extra Duty which has a black cap and has black writing on the balls. I got the...

    Babolat Pure Aero Green and Black?

    I have done some research so it seems as though this one I have bought thinking its a new pure drive aero 2019 version is actually the 2016 version lime green one.. It's not a fake it's from a genuine tennis website and was a bargain price for a new racket paid for 2 for £140 new.. What I need...

    Dunlop AO Balls?

    I have used these balls and I think they are quite decent, not the best out there but if you can get a good deal on them then go for it. They are not as heavy as the Wilson us open or Penn championship extra duty balls, the bounce is higher than Wilson us open about the same as the Penn extra...

    Strung racket, wrong grommet hole..

    I agree and it was just a lack of concentration and assumed it was just like my own aeropro drives, which reminds me of the under siege 2 film, assumption is the mother of all f*** ups. 1. My original post was worded wrong, what I mean was I got the starting knot wrong etc, not that I am a...

    Think about your balls when testing strings

    I also agree, Penn Championship balls I bought are probably the best ones for Durability and bounce I have used, apart from another user here a friend of mine I play with he had some of the Marathon balls you have in the US those were the best then second comes the one I had.

    Pro's Pro Strings!?
