I don't like this ball. It fells like feather and I don't have a sense of it when hitting. Also it has no power - bounces low and short. This is maybe good for pushers and chopper, but I play topspin loops :-(
Usually I use Yasaka Superior balls. It is the ball you feel when you hit and you know how you hit it (feedback). With Joola Gold I don't know what is happening most of the time. Maybe I just need time to adapt.

in its life, the ball is average at best, they are hard but they only seem to last a few matches, i played a league match and amazingly i broke 4 balls in 7 points, then got a butterfly ball out, completed the rest of the night without a problem, dont bother with joola gold!

I have never played with a ball which broke so often. Hard to judge because it breaks!
I prefer DHS, Butterfly, Stiga, Schildkrot and Nittaku over these. DHS is best "bang for the buck", but love the weight and feel of Nittaku Premium (just wish they were cheaper).

im really struggleing to give a sensable review on this ball because i just cant put my finger on why i dislike it so much, it seems hard yet very light and unpredictable, i never play well when its the chosen ball of one or two of my opposition! If you want the best, just use nittaku, if you want a cheaper alternative dont go for this one , try stiga premium instead.
