The best tennis ball, at any price, is the Penn ATP Tennis Ball. It replaces the Penn Masters Series Tennis Ball. It is the official ball of the ATP. It is the favorite of world championship players and is used in 10 of the top 14 professional tournaments in the world. These balls cost more but they are worth it. Try them now.

sort of, but he is saying that its the "pro's ball of choice". Thats a load of crap though isnt it, because i thought pros practice with the same balls that they use in their next tournament. SO before the Aussy Open they would practice with wilson balls?

isn't this like endorsing a product for the benefit of the company they are working for or something like that?

Picked up 6 cans of Dunlops at Sports Authority for $8.99 or something...after 3 sets they were in much better condition than Penn or Wilson have been, which I've used it the prior 6 matches or so. The bounce is better, and there is more felt left. When I was playing a lot ten years ago, my partners and I decided Dunlops were the best balls, and now I remember why. They were in better condition than the balls that I used indoors on a decaturf court 2 weeks ago, which were basically garbage after 3 sets. I think those were Wilson.

I have to agree tha Dunlop Grand Prix balls are by far the best. The do seem heavier than the others, but they last forever and I always get good bounce. I've gon through 2 or 3 dozen cans of them and have never gotten a bad one. I actually like the heavier feel.

I like the Penn ATP Ball as well. I also really like the Volkl 4 ball can. The Volkl balls seem a little lighter and more lively than other balls.

Favorites: US Open, ProPenn, cheap plain ol Wilsons. I hate Penn Tributes, they are hard as rocks. Actually I like playing with them against pushers, the extra zip helps.

The best ball is the one that's fuzzy, green or "optic yellow", has a decent amount of presure and it hit past my opponent for an ace or a winner.

Really, does it matter which ball you play with? They're all pretty similar. I'm happy as long as have enough felt and presure so that I can play.

Dunlops definitely last the longest. I suspect they have a heavier rubber core that holds pressure better, but boy when new they are heavy...

i went to ohio and i bought a couple of slazenger balls and i hit with them and i loved it.... the sound of the ball sounded good, and it was the perfect weight. i knew i should have bought more of them.... i cant find them anywhere here in virginia:-(

Lately, I also have been using Dunlop Hardcourt balls and I'm pretty impressed with them. You can easily get 2 days worth of high bouncing non fluff-up results from them.

I've felt Dunlop balls wear out rather quickly, but I don't use them anymore because I only play with regular duty; the stores around my area don't care regular duty Dunlop.

I keep hearing people say that dunlops are heavy, i think some of the penns feel heavy.Or maybe it is because the penns are harder.I have weighed the grand prixs, the wilsons + the penns + they all weigh 2 ounces.

Oh, testify!

Personally, I think the best ball is the one I can keep in court longer than my opponent. Every now and then, I think I find one, but then the next point happens, and the ball must get worn out or something...

I agree and also because they are still made in the USA.
