The quality of balls

I've tried both Wilson and Penn tennis balls (the tournament play ones, not the crappyass wons for 1.79 a can) and they crap up so fast. After about two hours of play on a hard court, they've lost all yellowness, they're too fuzzy, and they don't bounce worth crap.

Does anyone know of a tennis ball that lasts a long time with a good bounce.

I appreciate any help here

Re: The quality of balls

Hmm I've always used Penn balls for play. I have to agree the fuzz goes down pretty quick. Not had an issue with the discoloration though... only on clay which mucks everthing up anyway.
Only time I use cheap practise ones is when I'm practising my serve.
I'm probably wrong here but I just assumed Penn balls were the best ones??


Gouzo...
the tennis magazines usually have plenty of ad's in them with companies who supply balls in bulk quantities. Probably plenty available on the net but I've never looked/purchased them online.

Re: The quality of balls

I think Marat has the best balls...

Oh wait...

Well, Penn offers those specially made, slightly bigger, with higher pressure and up to 3x the longevity of a normal tennis balls. They are kinda expensive though.

Re: The quality of balls

Marat!? sorry, I dont think so. It might "look" like it, but I think Coria has the best balls.

Re: The quality of balls

Slazenger Wimbledon Ulta w/hydroguard are the best balls, they last long, play well on all surfaces. I found that they fuzz easily but still bounce well.

You can buy in bulk of www.tennis-warehouse.com or www.pwp.com

Hope this helps!!!

Re: The quality of balls

I buy cases of Penn balls, and I like them--they last the longest I've ever used, but the life COULD be better...

I will worship Jesus forever!

Go Monica and Guga!!

From the pictures, Lleyton seems to have great balls too, Coria's size pales in comparison to Lleyton's.....just my 2 cents.
