    Penn Championship regular duty. Best bang-for-the-buck.

    Penn ATP regular duty. Lightweight for injured players, kids, old folks, and players with bad elbows.

    Usually I'll just go for Wilson Championship, but Dunlop Championship or Penn Championship work fine. Gotta go with extra duty felt though. I hardly ever play on clay, so for hard courts it's extra duty felt.

    the Robin Soderling ball is quite ok.. atleast for keeping the bounce for a lomg time, but the felt will thin out too quickly, still a good ball.

    Yes, it feels like a longer lasting Wilson USO.

    why does Wilson US open die quicker than it used to ? it used to last 2 sets. now after 1 set, it is like an old ball. but for 1 set, it is the best ball in the market today.

    It might be the most comfy ball right out of the can, but durability is really substandard.

    Wilson USO's are a mess after one full session while Head ATP's lasts me 4-5 times x 1,5 hrs on plexipave, 8 balls. And they are still nice and easy on the arm.

    A bit hard, and medium weight. It never goes soft, so as it wears out it flies quite a bit..

    It seems to me that the latest edition of Slazengers (Wimbledon) are a tad worse (less bouncy) than last year's model, so I'd go with Dunlop clay fort atm, even on hard courts.

    I like these two also. Nice weight, bounce, felt durability, and bright color.

    US Open if cost is not a factor. I'm currently using Penn ATP and I like them quite a bit but will need to go through at least several more cans to get an overall feel. I would like to try out the Penn Marathon balls but they haven't been available at TW for a while (or they aren't when I've been looking).

    I'm changing over to Penn ATP - we used a can for two hours and they felt great.
