Dura Pickleballs

Official ball of the US OPEN Pickleball Championships, Spanish Open, Bainbridge Cup, PPF, and 2017 USAPA Nationals.

The Dura Outdoor Pickleballs, also known as the Dura Fast 40, are a seamless plastic whiffle ball specially designed for pickleball. They, like all outdoor pickleballs, have thick walls. The purpose of using hard plastic for a pickleball is to increase the life span of the ball in rough outdoor conditions. The name of the ball is short for “durable” and these balls live up to their name.

The ball is made by injecting a single glob of hot plastic into a mold. The mold is closed and rotated to spread the plastic evenly around the walls of the mold. When the mold has stopped spinning it is opened and the new ball is removed from the mold. Sometimes there is a minor separation seam from excess plastic that leaked out of the mold. This excess plastic is sanded off. Look inside the ball and you will not see a seam.

There are two sizes of holes drilled into this ball. The two sizes of holes and the hole configuration, help make the ball more aerodynamic.

The Dura Outdoor Pickleballs is a heavy ball, weighing 0.92 ounces. This weight helps keep the ball flying straight even in windy conditions. The weight also makes them a fast ball, compared to the softer and lighter Jugs Indoor Pickleball. The Dura are also a rather big, the ball measures 2.9375” in diameter. The ball has an average bounce height of 32”, promising lively response to every hit.

Formerly called the Dura 56, the manufacturer changed the name several years ago to the Dura Fast 40.

For many years, this ball has been the official ball for the USA Pickleball Association's National Pickleball Tournament.

Disappointed November 20, 2017
Reviewer: jeff  
Received a set of six new pickleballs. On our second day playing with them, noticed two of them had cracked. Not sure if it's a bad batch, but wasn't happy with that part of my order. PICKLEBALLCENTRAL RESPONSE: Thanks for your review of the Dura Neon Pickleballs. We stand behind every product we sell and I am glad to see that we sent you pickleballs in replacement for the pickleballs that cracked. ED

Dura 4 Outdoor November 14, 2017
Reviewer: kathy nielsen from roanoke, TX United States  
The original set of balls cracked, 3 on the very first day.  They were graciously replaced by Pickleball Central and it took 2 days for the first ball of the second set to crack. .
People like the balls, but they are NOT wind resistant.  Everyone likes the Onix 2 Outside balls better as they give a better feel of control and DO NOT  CRACK.

November 9, 2017
Reviewer: John Lomasney from Peabody, MA United States  
Love the dura outdoor ball. I would like,the,powers to be to endorse one ball.  Some of my mates like to use the heavier ball which bounces higher etc.  Pickleball needs uniformity.
