What balls are often used in major tournaments? And are they any different from our 3 star ball? Better quality for example?

DHS 3Star balls are most used in ITTF sanctioned events.

How about quality? Are they better than the 3-star DHS balls in the market?

I used some DHS 3 star balls...dont know if they are the best quality...but yes better than most of them in the market...same goes with nittaku also...
Butterfly quality here in india varies a lot...once i bought 3 pieces out of which 2 were slightly defective creating prblems while playing away from the table..

Mostly DHS, Butterfly and Nittaku 3 star. They are the same as commercial ones but players can test and play with some balls before the match and chose the best one.
