Best Tennis Balls?

ive got a whole basketful of Dunlop allcourt championship balls (i think thats the name.)

i got it because the dude at the racket store said it was the best (i almost crapped my pants laughing but held it in). anyway i try it out since its on sale.

my evaluation: bounces lower after just an hr of play. the good thing is that the bounce remains stable over the next few wks but sometimes when im bouncing the ball to serve it bounces too low and i have to reach for the ball.

think i'll be trying a basketful of penn balls next.

Re: Best Tennis Balls?

update:

i just read over quite a few posts over at tennis warehouse re: balls and it seems dunlop produces the best balls with penn being the worst and wilson just a little better than penn. the best dunlop balls are the grand prix/claycourt ones. also, slazenger, which is a part of dunlop, has the absolute best balls with their wimbledon line: high visibility and great air pressure, second to the grand prix balls when judging longevity of the bounce.

Re: Best Tennis Balls?

Babolat makes balls?

Re: Best Tennis Balls?

Really the balls are pretty much the same. They all have to meet certain standards and requirements. Some do go dead before others; but among the main brands (wilson, penn, dunlop, etc.), they are probably all the same. The really cheap balls are terrible and go dead very quickly.

Re: Best Tennis Balls?

I like wilson. They are much brighter and seem to be more lively.

Re: Best Tennis Balls?

I've been using Slazenger for years. For some reason I've never liked Penn. Same goes for Wilson.

Re: Best Tennis Balls?

wilson forever!

in addition, u should mention FOR WHAT u want to use the balls. is it for training purpose, the ball should be long-living and then a pressure-free ball is a good option (e.g. tretorn, ...).
if u need balls for one- or two-time use, the ball's attributes are more important...
