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.

Durafast 40 balls September 20, 2017
Reviewer: John Ng from Singapore, Singapire Singapore  
The neon colour balls are good for indoor use on a badminton court in Singapore. However, they dont seems to last as long as the Onix or Paddletek P7 balls.

Durafast outdoor pickle ball September 19, 2017
Reviewer: Trent Reid from Vero beach, FL United States  
This ball sucks. Easily knocked out of round within 1-2 games and crack within 5. Heard that yellow is of better quality than neon, but don't think I care to find out

Very disappointed with Dura Neon balls September 19, 2017
Reviewer: J D Tester from Gig Harbor, WA United States  
I purchased 6 Dura Fast 40 outdoor Neon balls and they are the worst balls I have ever tried. They cracked very easily and some only lasted one game! I went through all of them in two weeks, and that was only because I used other brands in between games with the Dura balls. I wish I could say at least they were cheap, but they were not. Very disappointed with this product. I hope it is only the neon color that is so shoddy. I have not used Dura balls before. PICKLEBALLCENTRAL RESPONSE: Thanks for your feedback on the Dura Neon balls.  We are sorry the Dura Neon cracked so easily. We stand behind all of our products, and in this case, we will send you replacement pickleballs. Just let me if you would like to receive Dura in another color or if you prefer another brand.

Broken neon Dura 40 balls September 4, 2017
Reviewer: Jeri Alberts from Carbondale, CO United States  
I hope that Dura gets their problem taken care of soon. Dura 40 is the only ball our Association has used in the last 5 years. Our Association just loves the Neon Dura 40 balls, but not the breakage ratio.
