Do the balls lose any quality of spin, speed or bounce after a certain amount of usage? Thanks guys .....

Hi George,

I think they do get a bit soft over time but it takes a long time to do this.  When they get a bit more worn, their surface isn’t as grippy either which may lead to less spin.

In my opinion the ball becomes little lighter and losees its grip to the bat. How many games can be played before we discard a ball ?

I think you can keep playing with them till they are broken.  The effect isn’t that much that you need to throw away a ball.
