Reviews of the Double Fish 3-Star

Review wind_comm said this on September 24, 2008:

great ball - when you find a real one. there are ALOT of fake Double Fish balls going around, even from reputable clubs. the real ones are great, and the fake ones look like eggs.

the fakes are good for training because they're unpredictable and force you to expect the unexpected. otherwise, not great.

again, when you find the real ones, they're great. be on the lookout.

especially good for the price
Review JonathanJ said this on January 9, 2009:

Pretty good. Like a combo between DHS and Nittaku. But I hear that there are a lot of fakes that claim to be Double Fish. Watch out for those!
Review Pythagorus said this on March 1, 2009:

The best ball overall
Review eelric92 said this on March 23, 2009:

Well, this ball is moderately fast and is moderately heavy. It is very durable and not very expensive, but besides that, it's just not a very exciting ball to play with!
Review loopy_newbie said this on May 19, 2009:

Great ball, but it seemed to break earlier than the Butterfly, Gambler, and Nittaku's.
Review Jeremy said this on November 25, 2009:

I bought a 3 pack of these balls 3 months ago and am using the second ball. But only because the first ball was lost. We play about 2 hours a session/5 days per week alternating between DFish and Nittaku premium. The DFish is nearly indestructable. It is a great practice ball. Compared directly to the Nitt Premium, the DF is heavier, softer and more lively. They are little more difficult to spin up, are much more durable.
Review balbertsen said this on November 26, 2009:

I go back and forth between the Double Fish 3-Star and the DHS Athens; both are excellent balls for the money.

The Double Fish 3-Stars feel slightly harder and the DHS Athens balls are a little more lively.
Review Jim C said this on December 12, 2009:

For the money, the best ball I have ever used. The Japanese Made Nittaku is slightly better but twice the price. I really like this ball
Review mmerkel said this on December 18, 2009:

These are great. We have a few mixed in with our other balls, and I can feel right away when I hit the Double Fish. Lasts a long time too. I broke one after about a month of play.
Review Halfmoon said this on December 20, 2009:

I have tried this ball on a few occasion, and found that it is a bit light, and fragile.

We had a few sessions of games and we broke a few balls. I did not quite like the bounce, and felt the DHS 1 stars were better.

I am not sure if the one I tried are the real ones, but DHS is still my preferred choice for ball on the account of cost and durability.

beauty game ball....i break quite a few though
Review otakujo said this on April 19, 2010:

These are great table tennis balls at an exceptionally good value. One of the more common balls you see around the clubs I frequent, they are a harder ball similar to that of a nittaku and have medium fast speed. On a rare occasion I've gotten a ball that sounds broken when you hit it but isn't and they don't seem to last as long as dhs athens but play closer to nittaku premiums than anything else i've tried.
Review DreiZ said this on April 25, 2010:

Great for the price.
Review long_wei said this on June 3, 2010:

I used to use DHS, but they seemed to have lowered their quality.
These are now my favorite ball to use. They are durable and they are cheap too
Review Woo said this on June 16, 2010:

Nice looking ball.
Good price and quality.

These balls are a bit soft and feels light in comparison to Stiga Optimum, which is hard and feels heavy.

Durability is really good, not as fragile as Stiga Optimum, probably due to the softness and perhaps slightly lower weight.

The price and durability make these balls the first choice for our club.
Review Anonymous said this on July 3, 2010:

I actually like these better than the Nittaku 3's.. Esp. price wise..
Review The_Coach said this on October 5, 2010:

A medium hard ball that is hard to find in scandinavia. A little bit better than an average 3-star ball.
Review Skippy said this on March 19, 2011:

These are heavy, and hard like Nittaku Premiums. They aren't as lively or as easy to manipulate spinwise, but nevertheless a solid value for your money. I still prefer the DHS Athens balls but you can deffinitely make a case for these balls because of their durability.
Review Anonymous said this on May 31, 2011:

Very good ball for price. Most of them last me months on end, but theres the rare 1 that breaks quite fast. The savings you get more than make up for that 1 ball though.
Review palubo said this on June 11, 2011:

If it weren't that hard to purchase that balls in Brazil, I'd use them ALWAYS. Excellent ball!
Review wm7789 said this on December 20, 2011:

best ball for the price. 6 balls for $5.00 either orange or white, megaspin.net, can't go wrong with that price,
Review Ducati_Red said this on January 11, 2012:

Fantastic ball, round, firm but not too heavy. Even the fake ones are round and play well :-) the only way you know you've bought fake ones is when they break often (like butterfly's). If you've bought real ones you only lose them or give them away when they are too dirty to play with :-)
Review papaTT said this on September 26, 2012:

The balls are too light. I prefer DHS 3 star balls in comparison, harder and faster and also affordable.
Review Amilcar said this on November 27, 2012:

Excelent 3 stars balls. Durable.And very afordable.
Review Loop_in_key_of_Bb said this on January 12, 2013:

Overall, Doublefish are the best balls when considering price/performance. Less expensive balls like Gambler 3* perform fairly well, but aren't as lively and not nearly as consistent as Doublefish. Yes, Nittaku 3* Premium are probably more consistent and durable, but cost over twice as much and are only marginally better. At 80 cents per ball, you can't go wrong.
Review ogondia said this on June 2, 2013:

Very bad quality,
Review powerlefty said this on September 15, 2013:

Great ball at an even greater cost. Only DHS gives a better value for what it has to offer performance-wise.
Review Amigo said this on October 29, 2013:

Shape is ok.... Most balls are round. Nothing to complain for a practice ball.
For me these balls are extremely hard and durable. Sometimes pack of 3 lasts me a month almost (kinda silly honestly). After a while they lose ability to produce spin of the table because they get worn and glossy on top but they dont break.
Solid value for the money. Slightly different feel.
Review chuckjordan2 said this on March 10, 2014:

A great ball and hard. It's a great ball for a hitter because it's that hard. I normally play BFY at my club and DHS at the rec center. It takes awhile to get used to it's hardness. And durable too.
Review Oldboy said this on December 13, 2014:

Update since 2008:

Started to get a couple lemons throughout the years. Still very good when they aren't misshapen or defective in it's structure.
