Comments: These have been my go to hard court balls for several years now. I did have a case last year that contained a few dead ones, but my latest case is fine. The one anomaly aside, these are middle-weight balls and a good mix of playability and durability, they don't rough up excessively on gritty courts. They are the best I've found for the money.

Comments: Have played with these balls twice a week for the last 4 months. Used a case and have not had any bad balls, as some claim. I think the Penn ATP extra duty is the best ball I have ever played, better than the Dunlop and Wilson US Open. They stay brighter longer and after 3 sets are still good warm practice balls.

Comments: Very good balls. Fast, firm, bright. Durability is above average. It's like a crossover of Penn Championship (soft and quick) and Dunlop Championship (very firm and durable).

Comments: I have purchased three cases of Penn ATP balls regular and XD, a case of ProPenn Marathon XD, and a case of Wilson US Open XD in the last two years. In one case of the Penn ATP there were two cans that had gone flat. The ATP balls have a consistent bounce and last 3 sets adequately. I am happy to play with any of these balls. I find that the court surface creates a more significant alteration in the feel of the ball's play than the difference in the properties of these balls. I get used to the slight difference in the ball characteristics quite quickly. The ProPenn has the best visibility, but I think that it fluffs up the most. I also think that the ProPenn maintains its bounce the longest. That's probably why the previous poster remarked on students being more likely to steal the ProPenns than the Wilsons. Curiously, in Canada a case of the Penn ATP sells for $108 whereas the ProPenn and Wilson USO sell for $96.

Comments: Penn has some quality control issues with these balls. I used to really like them but the last 3 cans I've had have all been out-of-round and bounce funny. If you are lucky and get a good can, they are great; nice and heavy and last longer than the Wilson US Open balls. Three strikes and you are out so back to Dunlop Grand Prix balls, for me.
