Item #: 020199
Style #: 474235
Ball Quantity : 72 Balls
Color : Yellow
Micro Cellular Technology: Neither pressurized nor permanent pressure™, Tretorn's micro cellular technology is patented worldwide and recognized by the ITF as the pioneer of a new category of tennis ball. The result is a highly playable tennis ball that does not lose performance over time.

A conventional pressurized ball flattens on the stringbed as it is hit and resistance is provided by the compressed air within the ball. A small amount of air escapes each time the ball is struck, reducing air pressure and performance. With this new category of ball, 700 million air-filled micro cells take the place of compressed air. These cells cannot escape through the ball's rubber core, resulting in a ball that never loses its bounce.

The rubber core, made of titanium and polybutadiene, has a softer feel than permanent pressure balls, enhancing spin. Surfaced with Tretorn's exclusive Flex-Felt™, which is specially designed from wool and polyester fibers, the Micro X offers unsurpassed feel, playability ad wear-resistance.

    Comments about Tretorn Micro-X Yellow Bag of 72:

    use in tennis tutor plus player machine. the purpose was to have a ball that lasts longer than normal regulation balls. initially lots of fuzz shed as expected. Balls have good bounce, but "harder" than standard balls if that makes sense. the hardness seems to give it a heavier feel but its not noticeable holding this ball and a standard ball. Takes some time to adjust using balls in a machine and have not used them extensively at this point to determine break-in or rate of bounce wear (two days of 3 hours runs). Have been very pleased with consistency in the lot purchased. Would NOT use in play or tournaments.

    Comments about Tretorn Micro-X Yellow Bag of 72:

    I use them with my ball machine. They bounce better and feel lighter than my old penn pressureless. You can still feel that they are heavier than regular tennis balls but definitely feel closer to regular tennis balls as compared to penn or gamma pressureless balls.

    Comments about Tretorn Micro-X Yellow Bag of 72:

    Have read some posts here that are bit over the top. First off let me qualify my opinions by saying I've practiced with and owned ball machines all my life for over 30 years. Make no mistake, the reason you should buy these balls is for practice only! They do not feel just like pressured balls because the pressureless core is harder than the pressured core thus creating a hard feel compared to the soft feel of pressurized balls. This does not change over time as one poster suggested,in fact they become harder as the felt wears off over time (I am going on three years with my original 180 ball order). However, that is the only negative I have found with these balls. The bounce remains consistent over time and against other balls in the group. This, to me, is the most important characteristic because if you use them for ball machine practice they give you the most consistent solid bounce every time the machine releases a ball. Anyone with a ball machine knows that if you use various aged pressurized balls the bounce is directly impacted by the life of the ball, and nothing is so frustrating as setting up a ground stroke drill and 1/2 the balls bounce differently than you intended thereby rendering the drill almost useless. If you use them for practice and drilling purposes only - they are absolutely worth the extra price (I purchased cheaper non-micro technology the first time I bought a ball machine and they were as hard as rocks, never lost their bounce, but did not resemble "live" balls at all). It is my overall opinion that the micro technology provides the closest bounce feel to pressurized balls, but to say the bounce and feel just like pressurized balls is just not true - only if you are an in-experienced user and just can't tell the difference.

      Used for practice, good feel and finally I can say goodbye to my old dead practice balls.

      A little hard at beginning but they get better with use.

      They provide good feel and bounce. These are for practicing so I don't recommend them for regular play. They are playable but a bit harder than regular balls.

          A:

          Micro-X tennis balls use an exclusive felt designed to be wear-resistant so they will play fine on hard courts. I have also used them on soft courts and they play fine there as well.
