This new Sanwei 40+ ABS ball has identical bounce to the Nittaku premium. However, the seam on the Sanwei is superior and durability is far better. And they are significantly less expensive than the well known brands. The new ABS balls sound and feel more like the celluloid ball.

I bought them from Amazon, 10 for under $13. Here is my review on amazon.
First time buying ABS balls. Took a few out to play/try at the club. Everyone who tried said they liked or loved the balls.
Very good for recreational club playing at all levels.
Here are my comments.
1 - It feels the same in different ways of driving, looping, chopping, and blocking. Some other brands, even the new Xushaofa seamless balls did not provide the same consistency. Some of the balls at this price range could make you feel that you are hitting very different balls, say, feel heavy when blocking but light when looping...
2 - Very good bounce in different speed and spin situation.
3 - I feel that the 3 or 4 balls I tried are the same, most of the other brands in this price level might or might not have that.
The balls are pretty much perfect sphere.
Feels heavy overall, which I like, could be a con to the others.
Great sound on the paddle and table at all the speeds.
Have more white powder than average, and leave a lot white marks on my rubbers even after I tired to wipe the balls with my hand first. I am not sure if this is a big problem though as the powders are gone after about 10 or 15 min of playing.
The surface has more of a matte feel than all the other brands I have used before, which might be a little bit too much. But this can be a good thing as it could stay with in good shape longer without getting super slippery. I believe that the super slippery balls tend to fly much flatter when doing loops. It seems that it is more about how the air is impacting the ball with spin than how the spin is generated on the rubber.
