I belong to two large clubs, one of them used to use Butterfly the other Nittaku, recently these companies stopped giving out free balls and the clubs switched to Gambler 40+.
As far as durability: When they break they do so in a most spectacular fashion, like they were shot with a gun, however BOTH clubs have had breakage go down by more than half. The BTY and NP40+ break in the seam, but much more often just not as spectacularly. I should note that if you do not hit an edge this ball will last until it gets slick like the old 38mm.
Roundness: Good as any ball we have had in the club.
It should be noted that I am a recovering Nittaku fan boy, I still like the brand for the sake of the brand itself but the Gamblers are begrudgingly as good or better for 1/3 the price.

I'm more than generous to give it an overall rating of 5 out of 10. I found that they are easy to break, broken like an eggshell, if you hit off your edge of paddle or mishit to table edge. 2 of them don't last longer than a few hours or 1 and a half days.
Granted it's averaging $1/ball, it has good reputation in some local club players. I found that they may think it's cheaper so have less complaints or expectation. My thought is that anything close to a dollar or more should last longer than practice balls. I know I'm already getting the "better" batch, since the logo is not offensively large like their original batch. So unfortunately the quality has not picked up still. I wanted to say though, despite easy to crack, they sound and play like a Nittaku premium 3-star. Have a slightly lighter feel to it, maybe due to not being too hard like the G40+ or Nittaku premium 3-star.
My favorite of all 40+ poly balls that are more durable is still the Nittaku 2-star Superior Balls. Plays and actually made of same materials and from same factory as their premium 3-star balls.
