    the lite doesn't have the micro beads while the micro-x do

    By the way, I cut open a MicroX Tretorn ball because it started to crack up already. The microbeads look a lot more like white powder. If you didn't know better, you'd think it's just white powder.

    The Tretorn Micro X are clearly superior. It's still is a heavy ball and will give some people Tennis Elbow, but Micro X from Tretorn is the best pressureless tennis balls ever made bar none. No ball comes even close.

    I always carry 6 Micro X in my tennis bag for when I practice at the wall and when playing in windy conditions. The Micro X is a great wind ball because it's so heavy.

    how long do the pro lites last?
    and are they better than the micro x because they are lighter?

    They are that small to fill in the air. You should look at them under a microscope. I think that would be kind of neat to do.

    I do NOT like the Tretorn Micro X tennis balls because they 'do' lose their bounce. I have personally owned the Tretorn PRO LITE tennis balls [each ball is yellow and white] for over 15 years and they have NOT lost their bounce. I bought the Tretorn Micro X tennis balls [4 cans with 4 balls in each can, the yellow balls] about 2 months ago and they are already starting to lose their bounce [Now I don't use these balls; Instead I pull out my old Tretorn PRO LITE tennis balls and use them all the time]. I plan on buying a bunch more of the Tretorn PRO LITE tennis balls in the yellow and white color because they hold their bounce and it's easier to know which balls are mine. I am hoping the Tretorn PRO LITE tennis balls are exactly the same as they were over 15 years ago when I first bought them. I will point out that I did not play with the Tretorn PRO LITE tennis balls for 15 years, I just owned them [I stopped playing tennis for 15 years and these balls just sat in my bag for 15+ years; They still bounce awesome after sitting in my tennis bag all those years; The logo wore off, they are old looking, but bounce great; I love them; And I want to buy more of them; I'll have to have them shipped in from Europe].
