Sir, are all 3 star balls equal?

Hi Earl,

No they are not.  I think Nittaku are good quality.  The things to look for is consistency of hardness all around the ball and also the roundness of the ball.

And what about ITTF aproved 03 star balls http://www.ittf.com/_front_page/ittf1.asp?category=balls  are they all excellent for oficial competition? To much balls to have the same qualities, don't you think.

Is it allowed to play a competition using two or more different ITTF aproved 3 star balls?

Hi Rene,

There are a lot of 3 Star balls and they are not all the same quality.

In a tournament they usually stipulate which type of ball they are going to use and then they use that for the whole tournament.
