  • PP40 balls

    Purchased PP40 balls from PBcentral based on test results from PBscience.org Ball plays as expected based on the PBscience review but durability was awful. Balls cracked right along the seam after 2 days of match play. Terrible performance for a (supposedly) premium ball. Back to DURAFAST balls.***PBC Response*** Thanks for taking the time to leave a review! Every ball is not designed for every player or environment.

    We’ve tried a number of different brands and types of outdoor balls and, so far, these are the best both in terms of play and durability.

    I was gifted a 3 pack of Pro Penn 40 pickle balls. I am a pretty serious player and have mostly played with either the Franklin X-40 or the Onix Pure Fuse. I must say that after only playing on two occasions with the new Pro Penn 40 ball, I really like the playability, visibility and surface finish of the Penn ball. I know pickleballers are all guilty of having a favorite ball of choice for outdoor play. I’ve always been a Franklin X-40 guy. I may not be so quick to grab the Franklin’s over the Penn’s. The Penn ball right out of the box has a little bit of a gritty textured finish and not smooth like other companies pickle ball. The color choice of high optic yellow is better than any other company that I have seen. The Penn ball has a great quality bounce, not too soft to give that high rubbery bounce and not to hard to give that low dead bounce. The only thing that I can not give an honest rating on is the durability of the ball in cooler/colder weather. I’ve only had the chance to play with the Penn’s twice and on each occasion the weather was in the mid 80’s and very humid. Would love to try them in cooler weather. I plan on playing with Pro Penn 40’s until they break or some other pickleballer steals them from me. They are definitely worth a try, you won’t be disappointed.


  • Other more experienced players tell me these balls are too heavy and too hard.

    Received theses to demo and review. Really appreciate Pickleball Central offering this demo. Been playing with the balls for not quite two weeks. Thus far, we love them, playing in moderate weather 50 - 60's. They bounce true and are holding up well.


  • Durable, High-Quality Ball

    Feb 14, 2023

    I have been playing for several years now and have had the opportunity to play with quite a few outdoor balls, Onyx, Franklin, Joola, to name a few. This is the first time that I have been provided a demo ball and want to thank Pickleball Central for providing them. I hope Pickleball Central will provide more opportunities to demo other pickleball equipment and to write additional reviews. The Pro Penn outdoor pickleball is a new entry for Penn and is a great option for players of all skill levels. The ball is made with a durable, high-quality rubber that is both flexible and firm and withstands the wear and tear of play, unlike some of the other balls especially when playing in the winter on East Coast. I've been playing with it for a few weeks now, and it’s hard to believe that Pro Penn pickleball hasn't shown any signs of wear or damage. The Pro Penn pickleball also has a consistent bounce and flight path. I've noticed that the ball doesn't tend to bounce erratically or unpredictably, which makes it much easier to hit accurately. This consistency is especially helpful for players who are still learning the game and trying to improve their skills. In terms of control, the Pro Penn pickleball is very easy to maneuver. The ball is lightweight and well-balanced, which makes it easy to hit with precision. This makes it a great choice for players looking to improve their accuracy and placement. Overall, the Pro Penn pickleball is a great option for players of all skill levels. It's durable, consistent, and easy to control, which makes it a great choice for both beginners and experienced players. I would highly recommend this ball to anyone looking to improve their pickleball game, as well as to tournament directors who want to spend a little less money on replacing cracked balls.

  • Great balls

    Feb 2, 2023

    Been playing with them for a week, so far I love them. Nice bright yellow instead of a dull yellow, bouncy. They have a rubbery feel so they are unlikely to crack in cold weather though I haven’t used them long enough to testify.
