Pro Penn HD Purple Racquetballs 3 Ball Can

Comments: Use a racquetball saver like Gexco or other brands, uses 3 balls instead of 2 balls, place in warm area of your house, usually does the trick to keep balls with a live bounce.

Comments: Not a great experience. After playing Ektelon fireballs, these feel less lively, more 'dead'.  Rubber material has a grittier, harder feel to it.

Comments: Advertised as "Pro" so I thought they will last longer.  These cost 25% more than normal blue, but they do not have same durability.  They are noticeably faster for a couple of games, then they go squeeshy and pop.  Also, my friend who hit harder absolutely kill me with these - my ego nor wallet can afford these :)

Comments: I like these balls. They are very lively and play well for about a match and then they go limp. Does anyone else have trouble seeing these balls against glass walls? I sometimes lose them against the glass. Or is this just me.

Comments: Not a good ball this year. Earlier in the year these balls started breaking at a ridiculous rate. In the spring they stopped breaking and started going dead after a few games. Nothing has changed lately.

(Jake, Penn has fixed the issue's with the new batches of ball and we have removed all of the defective cans/cases from our warehouse. - RbW Staff)

Comments: I like these more than any other Penn ball.  I haven't had the problems with them breaking like others have but that might be because I hit for accuracy and placement rather than power.  From my experience, these will break at the same point that the greens or blues will just lose their bounce.  Good accuracy and good speed without the heavy feeling you get from the red balls.

Comments: You're right Bob, they last for about one game. They say if the ball breaks before the label wears off to send them back for free replacement, what a pain, it's easier to just buy some more, very lively and fast, that's why I buy them, but if your worried about money, don't buy these HD Penn Racquetballs.

Comments:  Good ball, easy to follow, very lively.  Durability seems to be an issue though as it only lasts about 1 match.

Comments: This is the best ball if one is not on a budget.  Great performance and visibility, but consistency and durability will fade after a couple matches, if they last that long.  Seems as if this the most broken ball in the Penn lineup.  If money is not an issue, go with these.
