Vulcan VPRO Flight 40-hole Outdoor Pickleball
Official Ball of the 2024 PPA Pickleball Tour!
Designed to be the best of the best, the Vulcan VPRO Flight Outdoor Pickleball is the official ball of the PPA Tour for good reason. The high-visibility yellow/neon color creates exceptional contrast against fences, trees, and buildings, while the precision-drilled 40-hole design cuts through wind and other unpredictable conditions on the pickleball court.
To cater to the modern game, the VPRO Flight Outdoor Ball from Vulcan Pickleball is engineered as a roto-molded, one-piece ball that creates long lasting performance, consistency in both hot and cold weather, and a fast pace of play. Off the paddle face, the VPRO features a slightly tacky feel that allows you to shape shots with precision when the competition gets hot. There is a reason this ball is trusted in the biggest tournaments of the year.
Review of the VPRO Flight Pickleballs by Pickleball Central Staff:"Our team was excited to try the Vulcan ball as it was being evaluated for the PPA Tour. Our play test group consisted of players from 3.5 – 4.5 skill levels, all of whom have hit thousands of pickleballs. During our session, we included the other top balls on the market to compare. Here is what the group determined:
The VPRO Flight is a fast and responsive ball. The stiff construction allows the ball to sink into the paddle face on contact, making it easy to generate spin and shape the ball on court. In our play test, the bounce was consistent and let us forget about the ball and totally focus on our game. The neon green color is a huge step forward in visibility that allowed our players to track the ball with ease.
We noticed that the ball needed no conditioning, meaning the VPRO Flight was ready for competition right out of the box. We felt it played just a bit slower than the previous tournament ball, but we appreciated that the change in pace contributed to longer firefights. That's not to say the ball is slow, we felt it was as fast or faster than all other competitors. Of the VPRO balls we tested we did have one go out-of-round during play, but the durability and playability of our play testing allotment impressed us overall.
In summary, we feel that competitive players will like the ball. It balances out some of the power in the game and provides the consistent response, bounce, and flight that competition deserves. Recreational players will love the combination of high-visibility and durability the VPRO Flight offers. "

I bought these to practice for upcoming PPA tournament. I don’t feel like I can generate the same amount of spin as a Dura and they warp super fast, especially if playing with powerful hitters. Not a reliable ball and expensive per unit.

The worst ball I have ever played with! I cannot count how many times I have been using vulcan balls during rec play and seen the weirdest bounces ever, suprising myself and whomever I was playing with, only to find that the ball had become extremely out of round very quickly, and obviously needed to be changed out and usually for a different brand of ball at the request of the individuals i was playing with. I cannot believe the profesionals use this ball! ***Pickleball Central Response: Thanks for taking the time to leave a review, we’re sorry this didn’t work out.

Played half a game with 1 ball and it was out of round. Thought it was 1 bad ball. 2nd ball did the same thing. 3rd ball went out of round after 5 minutes of practicing serves. Waste of money for the price ***Pickleball Central Response*** Thanks for taking the time to leave a review, we’re sorry this didn’t work out.

Ball goes instantly out of round. The response to the ball is good but it will be lopsided quickly. I would not buy it again until improved.

Easily the most overpriced ball on the market. Charging over $4 for these is a joke. Yes they don’t break as quickly as a dura but from one hard smash/volley, they become so non rounded that you’re essentially playing with a pickle egg. Do not like this ball but if you’re playing PPA, not much choice. Only buy with a discount code.

The first ball I used was not round. We will see how the other 11 go. Pickleball Central Response: Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. We're sorry this didn't work out.

Played with these at PPA tournament in Desert Ridge. Nothing special. Some players found them to be out of round after a game or two. Certainly no reason to believe they are worth the price point.

The balls are very similar to the Franklin outdoor pickleballs except they seem to be a little softer to the paddle hit. They hold up better in the cold, don't crack as easily.

Its not great. Its not the worst, but its not great. Its like a forgiving DURA. Flies a little slower, takes spin, but goes out of round super fast. Went through a 12 pack in a week. Disappointed with this ball. ***PBC Response*** Thanks for taking the time to leave a review! Every ball is not designed for every player or environment.
