        Love these balls, they are my fave. Good value if you consider their durability compared to the basic Penns. I love how they feel on my racquet. Not too hard/stiff like Dunlops. Never had any of these open badly. Perfect ball.

        I'm a teaching pro and was looking for a long lasting ball for my teaching basket. For the price, they didn't last as long as I thought they should. Great for match play though.

              • Q:

                Sub: Not a yellow ball

                Our training court mostly for seniors is adjacent to our regular playing courts.In the past, we used the "RADICAL " PENN
                BALL--NOT MANUFACTURED ANYMORE--to identify easily when the ball
                strayed onto the regular playing courts.Could you suggest a ball
                which would solve my current problem. Just can"t use yellow balls

                Thanks, Hadley

                  A:

                  Options are a bit limited. The conventional tennis balls we carry are all optic yellow. We do have some colored balls, but they are all either low compression balls or pressureless—neither of which are really recommended for regular play. Low compression balls are designed to bounce lower and move slower than normal tennis balls and are intended for use as a training tool with young players. Pressureless balls don't have compressed air in the core and will never go dead, but generally they use a stiffer rubber shell to get the proper bounce. This makes them perfect for ball machines, but it also tends to make pressureless balls stiffer, heavier, and a bit harder on the arm. If you do end up opting for a pressureless ball, the Tretorn Micro-X Two Tone balls (http://www.holabirdsports.com/tretorn-micro-x-2-tone-bag-of-72.html) play more like a conventional tennis ball.

              • About Penn
              Penn is one of the most recognized names in tennis balls. Penn was started in Jeanette, Pennsylvania in 1910. Since then they have developed some of the most important tennis ball enhancements. Penn was the first to invent pressurized ball cans. Next they invented the first fluorescent yellow tennis balls. In 1973, the USPTA used Pro Penn tennis balls as their official ball. Throughout the past 100 years Penn has made revolutionary discoveries that have continually improved the tennis ball.
