      Comments about Pro Penn Marathon Extra Duty 24 Cans:

      Haven't opened all 24 cans yet, but I found several that required pliers to open the metal tab and some that contained a difference in the internal ball pressures. I have purchased ProPenns elsewhere and have never had these problems.

                Played with these balls for the first time today in preparation for a tournament that will be using these balls. Horrible ball. Heavy, terrible bounce, inconsistent.

                • Q:

                  How does Prod Penn Marathon compare to the Penn ATP balls? How does it compare with visibility, durability, pressure etc.. I want the best tennis balls but don't know which ones to buy.

                    The Pro Penn Marathon Extra duty tennis balls are 22% longer lasting than a standard core.Visually, the balls have the same felt color. Compared to the Penn ATP ball the Marathon ball is Penn’s longest lasting ball.

                • 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.
