The yield rate is really low for the 40+ right now. Even the 3-star are hit and miss. The same thing happened for the 40mm when it was introduced. It wasn't until 2003 before it got better.
Viscaria FL - 91g
+ Neo H3 2.15 Blk - 44.5g(55.3g uncut bare)
+ Hexer HD 2.1 Red - 49.3g(68.5g 〃 〃)
= 184.8g

LOOKING FOR THE COACH'S OPINION ON PRACTICE BALLS.

I wonder to know what balls now used by the America's professional coaches for doing drills and practice for teaching the game children, amateurs, etc.
Where from do they purchase trainer balls for practice sessions ?

   Is there some working coach on this forum? I'd like to here his opinion about what they think to be the best training ball at present time and why?

NO CONSENSUS AHIEVED SO FAR.

Just have learned some people's views on plastic training balls. 10 Revews given or more. There is no consensus on the best ball, people do prefer many different products.

Perhaps Xushaofa is considered most played training ball, as it appears from peoples many reviews.

As I suspected, the Nittaku Jtop is top quality. Here's a breakdown from a coach.

NEW OUTDOOR BALL OF ABS PLASTIC.

http://www.ittf.com/2016/08/23/ittf-marketing-director-steve-dainton-discusses-ttx-table-tennis-daily-podcast/

   A new plastic thing is now about to start out.. Newly designed ball of ABS plastic.

It is sayed to be a bigger diameter with a greater weight. Perhaps it befits indoor game as well. So exciting novelty, endeed.
---------------------
ITTF is now gets eager so much to enlist more and more people for the sport.
Is the TTX outdoor pingpong going to be a true attraction for non sporty people? Lets live and see...

I ordered a box of the new Donic P40+ back in december, which is supposedly a rebranded DHS D40+. I haven't received them yet so I rang them up last week to find out where my order is. They said the EU distribution centre has not sent the balls yet and they say they will be sending it in the coming weeks. What is sure is that I will get them at the end of March at the latest. This is consistent with the fact that the first World Tour to use them will take place in April.

CNT said that they have already test the new ball for a while and start using it in their internal competitions back in Jan. A few taobao shops have it in stock and shipping now. But demand may be high in this early stage so they might become hard to get like the case with Nittaku Premium. I have mine sitting with my taobao agent but too bad I have to wait for all other stuffs to arrive before asking them to ship it out.

I got my 1* version of the new D40+ ball from DHS today. Another fast delivery from TT11!!!   A few things I can report already, all good.

1.  If you hold it up to the light and look at the seam, and compare, it is identical to that of a Nittaku Premium.

2.  It has an identical bounce height to a Nittaku Premium.

3.  The color (how white it is) and the external surface texture are pretty much identical to Nittaku Premium.

I haven't played with it yet, but already I am very optimistic.  In fact, on the basis of the bounce height alone, I would say that they are better than the previous seamed Chinese 40+ balls.

Add to that what LGL said about them being the roundest balls yet, and maybe the ball situation is about to get better, at least once everybody starts putting their own label on this ball.

If it's like it was with Nittaku, it may take DHS awhile to get the production fully ramped up, and hopefully they continue to maintain high QC (in general not a DHS strong point). The *** versions are likely to be scarce for awhile.

But things may be looking up.

(One last thing, these DHS were not as round as a Nittaku Premium but then again these are 1* balls presumably for a reason, so I am not at all concerned by that).

Played with them tonight. Weird sound. Weird in other ways too. I think the best I can say is thatI will wait for *** before deciding anything about the D40+.

Yes, but those things can be adjusted to if the ball plays well.  The ball was pretty easy to rally with.  And I didn't get the impression that it was easy to break.

I like putting heavy topspin on the ball...
