    I've been reading that Dunlop balls outlast and are better than the Penn and Wilsons.
    I've recently played with the Wilson US Open balls and I've found that it outlasted the other ordinary balls one can get at a regular sporting goods store.

    Now, I want to get Dunlop balls since it will outlast the Wilson Open balls. I'm looking at a site and they have different Dunlop balls.
    Which dunlop would you recommend?

    - Dunlop Abzorber
    - Dunlop Champ Heavy Duty
    - Dunlop Champ Regular Duty
    - Dunlop Championship all court

    Grand Prix indoor/clay . I use this ball al the time . The hard court is good also . I just like a ball that moves quickly. The absorber is kind of a joke.

    i had the dunlop abzorbers and they lasted a long time the only problem was that they felt like they were heavier and bigger than other balls. You could compare it to a wilson rally ball.

    I've been around the game for over 30 years and can tell you that the Dunlop Absorber is the best ball out there currently. The previous poster felt that they were larger than other balls because they wear quite well and don't lose their shape, while Wilson, Penn and others wear like crap and their covers become smaller, while their seems become wider. What's more, they're also better for your arm and and have 15% less shock, multiply that 15% by the amount of times you stroke a tennis ball in one week, one month.....
