      Where to get Nittaku Premium 40+ plastic balls in the US now ?

      Hi Guys,
      One of my friends is looking to buy these balls now so that he can prepare for the nationals. Any help on where can we get these would be greatly appreciated.

      Paddle palace it seems has run out of stock !


      Thx

      If you can find anywhere (even in Japan ) which has stock of these, do please let the rest of us know ! Personally I think it'll be the New Year before we start to see them in any quantity.

      Right now, you can't get them anywhere. The Premiums are back-ordered, including Iruiru and japan-tt. If you want these to train for the US Nationals, you would be better off using a good ITTF-approved seamless ball like XSF than a Nittaku SHA because the bounce of the seamless is much more like the Premium 40+. Trust me on this. I have been using plastic balls almost exclusively for last 12 weeks and I have tried nearly every brand in existence, including some Nittaku Premiums I got from Iruiru in Japan a few weeks ago. When I tried to get more of those excellent balls, they told me they were back ordered, so I am again on their waiting list, also again for Iruiru because next time they become available I will buy a bunch. By the way, the Nittaku Premium Japan 40+ is by far the best plastic ball made (and the Nittaku SHA is one of the worst). There are many reasons why I have reached this conclusion, if anyone is interested I can elaborate. It is based now on a lot of experience, not just mine, but that of lots of other people at my club, including three former USA Men's National Team members.
