Mine is Butterfly 3 star in a match

And Joola Magic training balls for training. The ones with the black writing on I think are better then the red writing ones. They seem to be softer and break easier so they are not as good :D

Here in Brazil we use the DHS 1 star to train but in tournaments we use tibhar 3 stars. I also really like the Donic ones.

Butterfly's seem to last a long time without getting shiny. I find it interesting that it depends a lot on where people live. Most people in the US think Nittaku makes the best balls, but I've noticed they are not so popular in Europe.

I live in Sweden. And i think that the 3 star yasaka ball is the best :)

I enjoy the feeling that Nittaku brings to me when I hit the ball.

Gambler, those gold balls, I believe preform better than butterfly three stars.

The best ball I ever tried wasn't even mine. It was someone else's and after hitting with it I had to look at what it was. It was a Stiga Optimum.

On the cheap/value side I like 729 3star. I have found those to have the best durability amongst cheap 3 star balls.

Best ball for match is Nittaku 3 star. Best for training is Butterflay.

Nittaku "Premium" 3-star balls are the best for tournament/matchplay. They are the only ones made in Japan (and not China), and they even play on that fact in their advertisements x]. I like them because the batches are really consistent. I don't think they're magic like some people see them, nor am I picky about how you always HAVE TO play with that ball in tournaments. Other brands are good, but I've seen way too many 3-star bad batches (maybe even fake copies of them). I think I got some fake 3-star BTY balls with soft spots and inconsistencies too xD

But Nittaku Premiums are hell-a expensive. But you pay the price for quality (excuse me "premium" quality xD). If I were to get training balls, pretty much any cheap Chinese brands would do. DHS, Double Fish are some examples. I heard rave reviews about Gambler balls, but I tried the Gold-version (two-star I believe, Platinum is the three-star version), and I can honestly say that Gambler is one of the first balls that I HATED. They were so inconsistent, not evenly hard, and the powder on them was nasty. It was a bad experience for me (could've been a bad batch, but I doubt it...still, that just means that the balls are inconsistent between batches Dx).

Double Fish or DHS - good value and not a lot of diffence to the more expensive balls. I hate Schildkrot as one in every box is an egg.

For training we use Butterfly but, for matches it's Nittaku...... I also Like the Gambler 3 stars because they are very durable and cheap to get

There is just something beautiful about the Double Happiness three star ball....

Good logo design, and a really high quality ball.

Wang Liqin is in this forum?

My best ball for a match is Nittaku's 3*** Premium.

The best balls for training is Gambler's Platinum balls.

The best balls for robots are Gambler's Gold balls.

Match: Double Fish 3 Star
Training: DHS 1 star

Do you guys have a preference on the ball colour at all? I find a white ball is always easier to see for me.

Mainly tend to use Butterfly balls. But also like double fish. Main problem with Butterfly is durability, or lack of!

I think I paid £26 for a dozen Nittaku balls last year but I could have got another make for £8 for 12 from my local league which most of the clubs in it use - nothing wrong with them but just alot cheaper.

I like Double Fish and DHS 3 Star Balls, I also like Nittaku 3 Star Balls, the Nittaku 3 Star Premiums are really good but quite expensive.

For training there is this ball called GoGo. I think they are adequate in terms of performance but the reason I like them is you can get a gross, 144 balls, for under $25.00 (US dollars). So, for the same price as 12 Nittaku 3 Star Premium balls you can have 144 balls for training. They are about half the price of the Gambler balls and I feel like they are better quality. I feel like those Gambler balls are really bad. They don't play well and they break easily.

Joola, Donic, TSP and Tibar also make good 3 Star Balls.

Definately Stiga Optimum..though I think double happiness and double fish are quite good, not to mention cheaper too

YosuaYosan

Totally ?
That means price-quality ratio is a factor..
DHS and Nitakku 3* ftw

04-30-2011, 03:45 PM
Absolutely buddy...price is also part of it. Mercedes maybach is an excellent car, but is it value for the money?

MrRothhaendle
07-08-2011, 01:15 PM
We use the Joola for training
and 3* Joola for matches

This is most common in my region, because Joola sponsors a lot of players and clubs in here

DHS 3 star is definitely the best ....reasons:
1. affordable(when compared to say nittaku 3 star)
2.good shape
3.long lasting

so you can think of DHS 3 star as a substitute for nittaku 3 star....without compromising the quality.

Butterfly 3 star for both training and match .

I play mostly all heavy topspin with nice high loops but apparently you can't get much spin with the poly ball

08-06-2013, 09:58 AM
TSP*** or DHS***selected are the best

I prefer Butterfly's 3 star balls, they don't break that easily. DHS's balls are good also considering they are cheaper. I bought a lot of DHS's balls when I was in China and it was very cheap. They break easier than Butterfly's 3 star balls but since they are cheaper they are good too :)

nittaku 3*, however very expensive.

I think Nittaku is the best for tournament (both Nittaku 3 stars and Nittaku Premium). I am curious when poly ball come out next year, will Nittaku still producing the best ball or not.

I like the DHS training balls, and the Butterfly competition balls.

Corsini

In my club we use to train Gambler and Gewo 2 stars (cheap balls) and in matchs Gambler Platinum 3 stars.
But i think the best to train is Joola magic training ball and for matches Nittaku 3 stars
