QuietBall Pickleball by Onix Sports
The Onix QuietBall aims to solve the noise complaints about the sound of paddles hitting balls. This ball is made out of foam, greatly reducing the amount of noise produced on impact. However, because of this novel material, the ball plays differently than the typical pickleball made from plastic. You don't get the familiar pickleball pop from the QuietBall. It can be used in real games, but is not approved for official tournament use.
The QuietBall is smaller than all the outdoor pickleballs. However, this difference is less than a tenth of an inch and is almost unnoticeable. It is the lightest ball on the market, weighing only 0.71 ounces. Those playing outside should pay special attention to weather conditions as wind can affect the movement of the ball. This ball does have a relatively good average bounce height of 32”.
The Onix QuietBall, doesn't play exactly like a hard plastic standard pickleball, however, it is a fantastic choice for people who want to play early in the morning or late at night and keep the neighbors happy!
