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.

Dont last November 5, 2018
Reviewer: James Pfafman from Prescott Valley, AZ United States  
They don,t last as long as other balls PICKLEBALLCENTRAL RESPONSE: Thank you for your review of the Dura fast 40 outdoor pickleballs. The Dura ball is a hard, cast, seamless ball and is designed to USAPA specifications. The lifespan of a pickleball depends on how hard people play. Temperature is also a factor, where they tend to crack if used and/or stored in hot or cold temperatures. Please tell me more about your experience with the Dura fast 40 pickleballs. How long did they last?  Can you send me a photo of the cracked pickleballs? We do want you to have the best experience with the products we sell.

Hard ball October 30, 2018
Reviewer: Steve Baptiste  
Ball was hard compared to other outdoor balls. You could feel it in the paddle. Good bounce, easy to get used to.
