Oh, now I get it.  So this is another I hate Butterfly, or in this case Nittaku, because "The price for their product is just too high in MY opinion" threads.

Got you, moving on now, nothing to see here.

mts388 said It's time you let this thread die.

Let's not be bitter with personal attacks, I just use the facts !!

I am not trying to embarrass you if you appear to be an easy Mark for Nittaku balls if more money than brains.

The Joola Flash 40+ *** is the ball of choice in England for 2017-18.

The Stiga 40+ is used by 2 clubs in the German Bundesliga League.

Where can you buy it ?

I prefer the Nittaku Premium.. It's also the thinnest of all the plastic balls, measuring barely above 40 mm while some of the seamless balls are like 40.30 mm... Smaller size = more spin..

That might be true when they are new, but as they age, as slick as they become, I suspect they have less spin than the seamless balls.  We have a lot of them running around our club that are so shinny, they would have been discarded in the 38 mm days.  Of course at the price they charge they are still in use now.

Agreed.. The Nittaku Premium get very slick when they are used a lot, resulting in less spin.. However, a brand new Nittaku Premium 40+ seems to have more spin than any other 40+ ball when new.

Have you tried the new DHS D40+?  I'm wondering from a pips perspective how it fares compared to the NP 40+?

I have played it once or twice.. Seemed similar to some of the other seamless balls to me.. Didn't notice any major difference.. From the Seamless ones, I actualy like the Xushaofa the best. JOOLA ball is pretty decent too but I'm getting the best results with new Nittaku Premium 40+..

Interesting, another of my friends who play a similar style to yours (not your level, only 1900 or so) likes the Butterfly better than the NP 40+.  That's why I was curious.  Thanks

Butterfly ball plays ok. The first generation of them was not great but they improved the ball..

Nittaku Premium 40+ was used in the 2017 World Championships.

Butterfly A40+ will be used in 2018 World Championships.

The US could rotate the ball used every other year like the World Championships, maybe Butterfly A40+ for 2018.

I wasn't sure.. It was a while since Iast used it.. I usually play Nittaku Premium or Xushoafa ball.. Most tournaments in my area use Nittaku Premiun..
