        The Marathon Balls are the best for hard play. Delivery was very prompt. I could not be more pleased with purchase experience.

        Best Tennis Balls Ever

        By Clyde

        from washington, dc

        Comments about Pro Penn Marathon Extra Duty 24 Cans:

        I have played tennis for over 30 years, including college tennis. I still play a lot with competitive people including former college players, top juniors, and some lower level futures players. These balls last an entire session and can be used for drills for another hit. They still have good pressure and are neither fuzzy or speed balls. Amazing.

              They last about 4 -6 hours of steady good playing ...

                        I use these when I play USTA Matches/Tournaments.

                        I also give tennis lessons.

                        Last longer than standard Penn or Wilson Tennis Balls

                          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.

                        • 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.
