Update: Penn changed the bucket design and the lid is much easier to open and close.
Unless I can return these balls, they will probably be used just for serving practice or playing catch.
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.
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 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.
