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.

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.

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.
