The ball is supposed to weigh 2.7g (according to ITTF). This one is heavier than ideal. The bounce is lower than most plastic balls, but you get more spin due to smaller size. I prefer plastic ball because it slows down faster in the air so it's easier to play with for an attacker. Weight: 2.75 +/- 0.02g (ITTF requires: 2.67-2.77g).

Very light and very "grabby" when new. Use only for 5 or 6 games so that there is always maximum spin.

What an extraordinary table tennis ball... After being a Double Fish fanboy for quite some time I've finally felt compelled (A few lemons) to go back to Nittaku. Simply the best.

A Hard and fast ball but consistent. Has an average life span. Quite pricey in my country (note: I have used DHS, Double Fish, Butterfly and Andro balls). Was told one of the most expensive balls around but also one of the best to play with.
