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.

Horrible Balls April 25, 2018
Reviewer: Joseph Archazki from Estero, FL United States  
I have been purchasing thousands of dura balls through you.  Typically they last 4 to 6 months - expect for the neon balls which lasted barely a week.  On this latest shipment, the balls are developing multiple cracks within one week of play - 25% of the balls are already unusable.  No, I don't want to send the cracked balls back - I want you to fix the bigger problem - please.  I'm ready to take my business elsewhere. PICKLEBALLCENTRAL RESPONSE: Thank you for your honest review of the Neon Durafast 40 outdoor pickleballs. We are tracking this diligently and working closely with our manufacturer. We believe we have fixed the problem and are sorry that you received sub-standard balls. I am glad to send you replacements out of our newest batch. Let me know if 2 dozen replacements will be enough.

Dura Balls not durable April 25, 2018
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Boise, ID  
I love to play with this pickleball, but I do wish it would last longer! Used one about six hours before it broke. Granted it was only 50 degrees outside... But at nearly $3 per ball that's 50 cents an hour to play. For an addict like me, buying (and REPLACING) pickleballs has become a major expense...PICKLEBALLCENTRAL RESPONSE: Thank you for your feedback on the Dura Fast 40 Outdoor pickleballs in neon. We are tracking this diligently and working closely with our manufacturer. We believe we have fixed the problem and are sorry they unfortunately received substandard balls. Please let me know how many cracked and I will send you replacements.

Dura Balls not durable April 25, 2018
Reviewer: Reuben Montoya from Charlottesville, VA United States  
I enjoy playing with the Dura 40 however for the price i pay for these balls they do not last very long at all. They crack within the first hour of play - unacceptable!!!! Very poor quality control. I hope the new batch you sent me do not do the same. Thanks to Pickleball Central for backing up their product and taking care of me by sending me another dozen free with no guilt trip. Very rare customer service these days! Thanks! PICKLEBALLCENTRAL RESPONSE:  we appreciate your feedback. we are tracking this diligently and working closely with our manufacturer. We believe we have fixed the problem and are sorry you unfortunately received substandard balls.

Your service was excellent. April 23, 2018
Reviewer: Ramiro Pereyra from Bernalillo, NM United States  
I'm not sure about the balls but your service was excellent. They came within two days. The Dura balls have a reputation of breaking easily but we have no choice but to buy these sense these are the ones chosen for tournaments here in Albuquerque; and we need to practice with the balls what will be used.

Dura balls April 16, 2018
Reviewer: Keith West from Prescott , AZ United States  
These balls seemed defective to me. Immediately went out of round and we're wobbling all over the place. Different logo on ball than usual durafast 40 ball. These had a big stamp on it that said Durafast 40. Just played in a tournament that used this ball and it was in small bold printing and with the Dura logo. Made me think these balls were seconds or defective. My wife had one just explode with a big hole in it while playing yesterday. Very displeased with the quality of this order. PICKLEBALLCENTRAL RESPONSE: Thank you for your honest appraisal of your experience with the Durafast 40 pickleballs you ordered. We stand behind all of our products and are glad to send you replacements. All that we ask is please email a picture of some or all of the balls that broke.
