Re: Question about Balls

I haven't played with them so I don't know about their quality but since they are not use by either tour the price are probably lower to be able to get a part of the market dominated by Penn and Wilson.

Re: Question about Balls

They'll be used for the French Open 2011, so it's not quality.

Re: Question about Balls

I. Babolat (thanks to madmanfool for the information)

1. Babolat team
This is like the Dunlop fort of Babolat, but it lasts longer and is a slightly heavier ball. They also play better than the Dunlop when being just out the box. Best Babolat ball for sure.


2. Babolat VS
Heavier than the team and because of that more longlivety. Also more expensive. Great if you want a ball with which you can play like forever.

Re: Question about Balls

What makes a difference if youíre a good player, itís not about a ball, itís all about the gaming skills that one may have. I canít understand why people are always careful about selection of balls

Re: Question about Balls

I didn't realize that ball choice was such a huge deal either!

Re: Question about Balls

I play with some dudes that area very picky about balls. I've never played with Babolat - are they available in the states yet? I like a heavy ball (like Dunlop). I find the Wilson Titaniums to be super light, but for me, it's kind of like beer - I won't turn any of them down.

Re: Question about Balls

I'm starting to train my serve. It's will took place once or twice a week. Which balls do you suggest me? Which will keep their hardness as long as possible?

I was thinking about Head ATP, Dunlop Fort or Babolat Roland Garros?

Re: Question about Balls

I like the Roland Garros ball. It's a little tougher, and it's lighter than the other ones. I've noticed Penn in particular is HEAVY. Head ATP isn't too bad, I liked those too.

Out of those three, I'd go with the Babolat RG ball.
