These balls are the best pressureless balls I've used. They rival pressured balls in almost every way- bounce, spin, feel, weight. I'm a pressureless ball fan because I hate dead balls, and use 2 baskets when coaching or practicing, and I've tried Tretorn (for years), Wilson and Unique pressureless balls. These are way better. I only wish they were made in the USA like other Penn balls.

I have used Gamma, Tretorn and Penn pressureless balls and these are the best of the bunch - by a mile. Pressureless balls are firmer than regular balls on off-center and frame shots, but these are not at all objectionable to me and my kids. I have used Penn pressureless balls for instruction, ball machines, and in practice games, including at high altitude. They work great for all purposes. In fact, Penn has perfected pressureless balls to a level where they should price and market them as the primary ball for recreational (non-tournament) play. The fuzz on the Penn pressureless balls (and the other brands) holds up very well. My one gripe is that the lid on the Penn 48-ball bucket is a terrible design. Granted most people will put them in a hopper, but why go to the manufacturing expense of making a bucket and then not put a lid on it that: 1) opens without a crowbar; 2) stays open when you are using it; and, 3) secures down when you close it. So easy to improve, it seems like basic laziness on the part of the design team. In comparing Penn pressureless with Gamma and Tretorn, my experience is that Gamma balls bounce like they are "out-of-round" and get worse the longer they are stored on top of each other - great for improving your reflexes, but wierd to play (I ended up throwing them away while the fuzz was still good) - and Tretorns are like hitting bricks whether you hit on the sweet spot or off.

Update: Penn changed the bucket design and the lid is much easier to open and close.

I very disappointed with my purchase of this 48-ball bucket of Penn pressureless tennis balls. The primary problem with these balls are the pronounced seam that plagues many of the 48 balls. Even some balls that do not show a discernable seam bounce unevenly. I was teaching my son tennis when I noticed that some of the balls were bouncing funny. I added a picture to the image gallery showing two tennis balls with the seam. There is also a picture of the bucket that the balls came in.
Unless I can return these balls, they will probably be used just for serving practice or playing catch.

I decided to try these after I purchased the Gamma pressureless balls. I used these and the Gamma balls in a ball machine. The gamma balls lasted almost three times longer. Do not buy these balls they simply don't last.

When they're brand new you can see a seam down the center, where the two halves were connected together. It doesn't affect the bounce, as far as I can tell. It also feels a little heavier to hit than regular balls. As the ball gets used, the felt on the ball wears unevenly, resulting in a knotty appearance (see photo that I'll upload) and they don't hit right at that point. The line in the center slowly disappears with use. I placed three balls ranging from newest (left) to oldest, and you can see how the little fuzzy knots develop. I also placed an aged/overused regular ball next to the worn down pressure less ball for comparison in the photo.

The first time I ever used these it was while playing with a random guy I met at a public tennis court who had brought them. I mentioned several times how impressed I was with the amount of spin he hit with - I think you can get more spin with these balls then normal balls. But I hadn't even known we were playing with pressure less balls until we were done playing he put them away in a mesh penn bag. And that was when I was like hey, aren't those the penn pressure less balls.... which is how I came to using them. Saves money over traditional balls. But they do play differently than traditional balls, which is why I docked a star.

My experience with pressure-less tennis balls from over 15 years ago weren't too positive. The balls then were just not bouncy enough, and therefore practice can't mimic real play.

I got these due to better reviews than others. It came in a bucket that is different than the picture! The bucket is round, with a black cap. The plastic bucket is solid so can't see through the balls. The cap is round obviously, and can open 2/3 ways as well. It's functional but not as elegant as the one in the picture.

The balls are very bouncy out of the bag. I'm very pleasantly surprised given my perception of the pressure-less balls from experience. They bounce as good as the regular balls, and perhaps maybe a tad bouncier. I am gauging these about 4 miles from from San Francisco Bay (south-east side), where the elevation is slightly below sea level.

The balls are excellent and gets 5 stars from me, but the bucket loses 1 star. Overall I'm very happy and will likely buy another bucket.

I am ordering my second bucket today. I ordered my first bucket a year ago.

I use these balls for a very narrowly defined purpose: serving practice. Whenever I can, on my drive home from work, I like to stop off at a public court and hit some serves. I do not want to open a can of new pressured balls for this and used pressured balls rapidly become quite dead. I keep a hopper of these balls in the back of my car and they are great, especially when the weather turns colder, as it is now, in December. Even with the temperature in the Fahrenheit 30s I can get a pop out of these balls, while the used pressured balls become rocks.

As far as hitting with a partner goes, these would always be my last choice. Hitting with a partner, I don't need many balls. So, if I didn't have a new can of pressured balls, I would prefer some recently used pressured balls over these pressureless ones. They just play differently than pressured balls.

If I am playing where there are water puddles, I don't worry if they get wet. Once they dry off, they are the same as before.

I have found them to be durable, consistent, and mine have not had the pronounced seam that is shown in the photograph. The only reason I am buying a new bucket is that I've lost some over the last 12 months.
