I got a box of dhs regular plastic from PP when I got some nittaku, and man are they ever horrible.  It's like a different, softer kind of plastic.  They feel like gnip-gnop balls.
W6 fl with Illumina 1.8

Please let me know if I can be of assistance.

Yes, their usual plastic balls are appallingly bad.  Hopefully given the fact that ITTF uses their balls for some unfathomable reason the D40+ will be better.  I am not entirely optimistic.

Seamed balls are the past. I cant see the reason, why they still produce seemed balls.
Future is seamless (einfach is genial, genial is einfach:)). 
Dhs 40+ are for player the worst choice. (too light, without spin, bad quality, horrible feeling).

Welcome future :Hanno, Xushaofa!!!

The current situation does not support that assertion.  The new designed seamed balls from Nittaku have been generally smaller and more uniform in how they play than the seamless balls.  Both technologies show strong promise for the future.

The old-style system borrowed from celluloid ball manufacturing does seem (seam?) to be a dead end.

Last time I checked there were still no 3-star D40+ balls. Only 2- and 1-star.
Viscaria FL - 91g

On the D40+ I can't find anything recent.

Saw this:  https://www.tabletennisdaily.co.uk/equipment/balls/12659-d40

But nothing beyond that, and we are seven months past April. 

At a point people may recall that Nittaku had trouble meeting the demand for their new balls, but solved that.  Assuming these D40+ are using similar technology, it may be they are having some problems getting the production going.  I am just guessing.

KINGNIK OVERTAKES NITTAKU IN QUALITY.

   Do not pass by those new product by Minkow manufacturer.
Kingnik newest ball made of ABS plastic, just the same material as now used by Nittaku Premium 40+
balls. The price reduced as much as
three times as against to the Japan-
made product.
Best price on the market. This Kingnik product is now made by using ABS plastic material, exactly identical to the Nittaku Premium balls.   This KINGNIK seemingly emulates Nittaku playing performance, I believe so.

Igor, your link just comes back to this page.  Can you post a link to the Minkow ball that resembles Nittaku?

I have tried to find it on their website.  The only ABS ball they mention are 1* and 2* training ball, and based on the specifications that they provide, it certainly is not in the same league as a 3* Nittaku Premium (which is why they are not 3* and not ITTF approved).  Maybe their 3* version will come out later. 

http://minkow.en.alibaba.com/productgrouplist-802356814/New_coming_40_plastic_balls.html

http://www.minkow.com.cn/Table-tennis-series

They also make seamless balls under Kingnik label, ITTF approved, made from something they call PU plastic.  I have not used those specifically, but I normally like seamless balls. 

It would be good if there were other balls out there that were more or less like the Nittaku Premium, and I keep hoping the new DHS D40+ balls will be like that, but for now, there is no news on that.

I miss the chance to buy the 2 star D40+ balls that briefly sell on TT11. Don't know why it is so difficult to get and can't be found from any taobao stores. Looks like it is for HK and TT11 only. I like their 1 star D40+ a lot because it is very close in bounce to NP40+ and durable enough for training. Hope they can give us 3 star D40+ very soon and stop making those dreadful DHS 40+ which breaks like cracking eggs within minutes of play. Really can't afford to play with them any more. Dead

TAKE A LOOK AT THE BOX LETTERINGS.

If you wish for really durable DHS 40+, you ought to use the later product , past Juley 2015 production date.

Juley 2015 is when DHS changed to the improved plastic formula, harder and durable plastic.

date codes XG AE. = 07 15

I just bought some new packs with code XEAF. It has the date of "Official Ball of World Games" extended from 2016 to 2020 printed on the box, yet it still break within the first 10 minutes of play without much hard hitting. Personally I will not buy any more DHS balls until they give me D40+.

Those D40+ 1 star balls are dirt cheap from taobao yet the quality is pretty high for the price. Cost only 18 RMB (about $2.60) for a box of 10. I am surprised to see that they have it priced much lower than the normal DHS 1 star. I hope that is still true when they give us 3 star D40+.

I bought from taobao through buying agents a lot and they are quite reliable and fast. Basically you tell them what you want and pay the cost by paypal. They will buy and collect for you. You can build up all you want and when you feel it is enough, you can tell them to pack and they will tell you the total weight and shipping cost. They will use fast shipping with tracking (eg. EMS) so cost could be quite high. Bear in mind that not all agents are equal. Some charge a lot for handling and shipping cost varies too so it is best to check before you start. Otherwise you will be surprised by the final cost when everything build up. 

I think these days you can buy direct from taobao and ship oversea but I am comfortable buying through agents so I have kept doing it the old way.
