SLK Hybrid Indoor/Outdoor Pickleball by SelkirkThe SLK Hybrid Indoor/Outdoor Pickleball is an ideal ball for new players or groups that know their equipment will see a lot of use, and for whom durability is their primary concern. The composition of the hybrid ball is forgiving, and therefore doesn't perform quite as fast as competition-grade ball options. However, as with other less-rigid balls, the SLK Hybrid provides long-term durability and great value. Engineered to provide true flight, players enjoy consistent action on the court. It can be used in any environment and will stand up to both rough and smooth court surfaces, such as outdoor tennis courts and indoor gymnasiums.
The SLK Hybrid Indoor/Outdoor Pickleball is made with 40 precisely spaced holes to create predictable flight and bounce. They allow easy passage of air through the pickleball but its weight helps to reduce interference by wind. The design has a bright yellow color that stands out for easy tracking against just about any background or court surface color.
Pickleball Central's independent lab testing confirms Selkirk's claims of ball durability. Bounce height decay and ball lifespan until breaking are in keeping or better than other recreation-oriented indoor/outdoor ball options.

These balls break along the seam. It always happens. Sometimes we get one game before they break, sometimes several games. They always break at some point. It is too bad, because they play well. I have been through over 100 balls - I will not buy more. ***PBC Response*** Thanks for taking the time to leave a review! Every ball is not designed for every player or environment.

We use Onix pickleballs now for 6 courts. Seems they bounce well for month on hartur courts. SLK in use for 4 days and no complaints, Report that it's a little heavier than Onix but no issue for our members. No final decision if we will switch

One ball split in half after a few hours! I haven't seen before.. maybe a seam issue! So far only one!
Versatile but fragile...

My partner and I purchased 6 Hybrid balls to use for both indoor and outdoor use. We used them for several indoor games and find them to be a nice compromise between indoor/outdoor balls. They don't seem to bounce quite as high as Onix Fuse Indoor balls, which is good, and were easy to get used too. Only issue is that we have had three of the six split at the seam. We notified Selkirk and they immediately sent us six more, but will have to see if this is an anomaly or not. We also are satisfied with the outdoor play in cold weather. We play all year long in North Carolina and needed a ball that can handle 40 degree weather.
