These balls bounce normally and last as long as good quality 3-star balls. In fact, I got some 3-star balls from Halex and they simply could not compare to these Joola training balls. The 6 Halex balls all broke in about 3 weeks, while I've only lost 6 of these Joola balls in about 6 months! Actually, most of the ones I lost were literally lost, as only 2 actually broke, while the Halex 3-star balls which cost twice as much never lasted long enough for me to lose them.

EDIT: Now it's been many more months that I've been using these balls(I've had at least 2 batches of the white ones and 1 of the orange ones, all ordered at different times). I've been using these balls for training quite often, while using various brands of 3-star balls(DHS, Nittaku, Butterfly, Gambler, etc.) for playing and also sometimes for training. In comparison, the durability of these balls are outstanding, comparable to your average 3-star balls. However, there's one important thing to note: the orange balls are significantly heavier and faster than the white ones. Compared to the 3-star balls, which are pretty similar to each other, the white ones are a bit lighter and slower while the orange ones are a bit heavier and faster, so the differences between the white ones and the orange ones are very noticeable if you've played quite a bit of table tennis. For training purposes, I prefer using the white ones. While the orange ones feel better(probably why they're priced a bit higher), the white ones are more difficult to play with, so if I can hit the white balls well in training, then I can hit 3-star balls in matches even better!

Table tennis isn't what it used to be, and it won't be this way for long either. Some time ago, the classic 38mm table tennis ball was altered to 40mm. The 2mm size differential changes the game, slowing it down to some extent and certainly making for ping-pong being a different sport than it was years ago. And immediately after the London Olympics, table tennis will change again. Celluloid will no longer be permissible for table tennis balls AND there will be yet another size change upward, though this one markedly less apparent than before. We're waiting to see what material will be used instead of celluloid, but now may be time to stock up on whatever 38's are still available as well as the current celluloid 40's just in case you end up preferring them to what is to come.

So all that said, here we have seamless orange 40mm celluloid balls which have given us no difficulty in terms of balance and longevity. With consistent daily use, we've noticed, if anything, a lower frequency of cracking than with other balls. Though marked as training balls, we've seen no difficulties that would prevent these balls from being used within game play.

These balls are of solid construction. If you are into slamming and hard hitting, each ball could last for 2-3 weeks. I have had 2 set of 12-packs from Amazon. Yes there was one odd ball that wobbled - not of even construction - but apart from that I have had a good playing experience with these ball. Orange color also stands out on light colored walls. Please don't waste time and money buying Halex.

well, I expected these ping pon balls to be better in quality. One was cracked, and a coupe were somewhat misshapen. The others were good.

I have bought these to play table tennis in our lab in my school. The reason I am giving them 4 star is that even these were very durable but still I had thought that they should have been more durable. Whoever is buying these will love the speed and bounce of these balls. It's a different feeling of playing with these bouncy balls plus you will love the sound of smash with these balls.

They don't bounce and neither they are fast. After you hit the ball, they just slow in the air. I had the similar balls [in white] not sure what is the difference, but they are still going good except that some of them broke after some usage. These are either low quality or something wrong with the batch i got. Returning them back, just can't play with these.

These are great balls for the kids to practice with. I try to shy away from the expensive ones because they end up getting smashed up and cracked in our garage/toy room. The kids are not nice on them sometimes they smack them open for fun to hear the pop.

My cat loves ping pong balls,and these are a good quality ball. They are now all over the house, and it is fun to hear him play with them, as they ricochet off the floorboards.
