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.

Dura Ball March 16, 2018
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from WI United States  
We have used them in the past and found them to be good.  They eventually do crack, but are the preferred sanction ball

Reviewer: Roxanne Lennick from Highlands Ranch, CO United States  
Quick shipping. I Like these balls they last 3-5 games in Colorado as long as temperature is above 40. They break too quickly if temperature is lower than 40.

Dura Outdoor Neon March 15, 2018
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Los Angeles, CA United States  
This batch of 12 had some balls with badly uneven seams and the ones I played with  cracked after a few games. I had the same issue with ones I bought last year.....the orange seem to hold up well but the neon one are not worth it. PICKLEBALLCENTRAL RESPONSE: Thank you for your review of the Dura Outdoor Neon pickleball. We have identified the problem with the ball and you should not have that problem with the replacement balls we sent you.

Out of Round March 15, 2018
Reviewer: John Mulcahy from Naples, FL United States  
Bought a dozen about one month ago.  They seemed to go out of round long before they would normally be expected to crack.  Figured it was just one of those things.  But the first two from the dozen I just bought is likewise going out of round - - - sort of a small bulge develops on the surface. PICKLEBALLCENTRAL Response: Thanks for your review of the Durafast 40  outdoor pickleball.  It sounds like you received some defective pickleballs. Let me know if you would like me to send replacements.
