Miles beyond any other 40+ ball out there at the moment. Very consistent trajectory and bounce. Behaves like a celluloid ball in terms of feel and reaction off your racket, although with noticeably less spin. Speed feels the same as celluloid, maybe even faster sometimes.
I actually prefer this ball to the celluloid 40mm, only because it's easier to counter-loop, predict ball flight, and control the ball in extended rallies. I've played with mine a ton, and only a few broke after many hours of play, or if caught on exposed wooden edge of blade during a mis-hit.
Difficult to come by and very expensive when you are able to find. This is pretty much the only 40+ ball I play matches with. Distant 2nd place is the seamless XuShaofa 40+.

The previous reviews say exactly what I've been saying as well. The Nittaku 40+ Premium is by far better than the rest. Switching from this ball to any other plastic ball is like night and day.
Stufro's comment about the others floating like marshmallows is the same thing I say...except I say that they float like beach balls;) The N40+P has weight, grip and predictability. I really hope the other manufacturers take note of this ball and change their design to be more similar.

Best polyball there is. When i play with it, it bounces like an amazing celluloid ball.

Best plastic ball on the market. The ball is supposed to weigh 2.7g (according to ITTF) and it does. Extremely consistent and round. You get what you pay for. If you want a cheaper option try Nittaku 2 star plastic ball - it's almost identical except with slightly larger variations in weight.
Weight: 2.7 +/- 0.02g (ITTF requires: 2.67-2.77g).

Best poly ball definetly. But breaks easily.
