The ball is supposed to weigh 2.7g (according to ITTF). This one is slightly heavier than ideal. The bounce is lower than most plastic balls, but you get more spin due to smaller size. I prefer plastic ball because it slows down faster in the air so it's easier to play with for an attacker. Weight: 2.74 +/- 0.02g (ITTF requires: 2.67-2.77g).

A very good ball to play club competitions. Lighter then Nittaku 3 Star, same weight ike JOOLA Trainig ball. Speed is the same like Nittaku 3 star. Actually 2 or 3 balls do brake on every training ( 5 tables, 2 hours ). The surface doesn't loose it's grip and the characrerictics are quite identical until they break. A great ball to play competitions. They cost much money, so for training a DHS 3 star. Durability is not so good. I reviewed this ball in 2013 first, and now I update my opinion in 2015, these balls become less durable. Every 2 hours of training I break one ball. Maybe Butterfly lowered the durability to disguise the even poorer durability of their poly balls. White is more durable, yellow breaks after an hour. I'm a looper type not a smasher.

A very good ball to play club competitions. Softer and lighter than Nittaku 3 star balls. Speedwise as good as any other balls. Has a true flight (that shows the quality of the balls) The ball surface doesn't loose it's grip and the characrerictics are quite identical until they break up. I would rank this as one of the best table tennis balls I ever played with. (unless one settle for a cheaper balls, then DHS, Double Fish and Globe brands come to my mind)
