Are Wilson or Penn tennis balls better?
Ratkovich, of Penn, said Penn ATP World Tour and Pro Penn Marathon balls had a higher grade of felt and a stronger rubber core for players with more power and spin. They cost more but last longer. … Wilson’s extra-duty tennis balls, introduced in 1960, are the ball of choice for most hardcourt play.
Not only are the Penn Pro Marathon Extra Duty tennis balls their longest-lasting ball. They are also packed with Penn’s latest technology to enhance performance.
So how long do tennis balls really last? Tennis balls will go bad after about 2 weeks or 3-4 playing sessions. Unopened tennis balls are kept in a pressurized tube to help them retain bounciness and firmness, but even those will expire after two years (due to very tiny leaks).
Hi Margaret, the difference is extra duty is a much thicker felt and is designed for hardcourt play. Regular duty can also be played on Hardcourts but is versatile enough to be played on clay courts. Extra duty will last a tad longer than the regular balls will on a hardcourt.
The balls have a true to feel bounce and didn’t kick wildly off the court. After 4 hours of play the balls had fluffed up a little but still provided good performance. Vermont say this ball will work well on all surfaces and provide the same high end performance regardless of the court.
