Which one is better in your experience?

Pro Penn USPTA + Extra Duty
or
Pro Penn ATP Extra Duty

Why?

Which one is heavier?

Thanks

For Penn there are two top tier balls - ProPenn and then Penn ATP. I'll assume this is what you're referring to. I like both balls. I don't know if one is necessarily all that much better than the other. I would say you can't really go wrong with either ball.

My personal feelings are that both are good quality balls. The Pro Penn USPTA balls seemed a little heavier and seemed to last a little longer than the Pro Penn ATP balls. If I were looking for a can of balls for one match - I would pick the ATP balls. If I were looking for a can with the intentions of trying to use them more than once, I would go with the USPTA version.

If you say so Fedace. Personally I find them comparable but they do feel differently when playing. I find the US Open balls feel lively compared to the ATP balls but just in feeling. Actual play (shot quality, bounce longevity, felt longevity, etc.) is still the same.

Thanks for your feedback guys!!
And I agree with Fadace, I like Penn ATP tour ED better than the Wilson US open balls.

Wilson US Open balls are great during the warm up. After that they fuzz up and lose all their life.

I have yet to meet a Penn ball that isn't flat and mushy right out of the can. I assume these are higher quality Penn balls the OP speaks of. The sorts superstore Penns are garbage, the worst.
