My friend started this discussion......I don't know if I have a favorite...but I was feeling maybe Penn has a little more give.... Wilson seems to be firmer and stronger so more speed? Tell me what you think ......

K3 has a gold version too.  I prefer the silver.  little cheaper, feels just as good and holds up pressure well

I like the wilson us opens the best.  I also like the K3 SIlvers.

Sports Chalet wouldn't discount to me for quantity, but Sports Authority did. Also SA has the Coaches Club where you get a whole book of $5 off coupons.

That Big 5 price for the Penn ATP Tour balls is pretty good! I'll have to check that out!

Where are you buying these balls?

Yeah i tend to stick with head atp balls in the gold tin as they seem to hold up the best and are a little harder imo.
I do however change balls for every match. Some at ny club have had the same set in their bag for years ha!
Also playing with dud balls even after only a set or two really negates my serve.

Luckily our group always has two to three guys bring balls...it's like an unspoken rule now...bring quaters for the lights and you better bring balls once a couple of weeks (we have enuff players that that is enuff)

I used Penn all through high school and college.  I prefer Penn.  I think the felt around the ball is not that tight when brand new.  I use a heavy topspin and I'm able to grip the ball much easyer.  I have a harder time with a new Wilson ball.  I'm not able to grip a new Wilson ball that easy compared to Penn.
The Dunlop Ball is typically heavier and Slower and have more fuzz, US Pro Penns or USPTA pro Penns are smaller lighter and faster. Wilson regular Heavy duty are regular hard court balls and I like regular to slower balls. the Wilson USopens are smaller faster balls like the pro-penns. practice balls and depressurized balls are CR@P.  I also like any ball on sale. I have also found that beginners hit dead balls better and Tournament players dont practice enough with newer balls.
