Gamma Foam Quiet Pickleball
The ball is a little more lively than one with holes. It bounces a bit more and travels farther as there are no holes, so no friction.
Overall, after 5 games, we were getting used to it and all felt we could live with it. It is definitely a good start to solving the noise issue.
Well satisfied with the low noise ball. The bounce is similar to the wiffle type ball and it appears o take spin about he same. Playing outside it bounces on asphalt the same until it gets wet. then it gets sluggish. Perhaps the ball should be water proof.
I had been practicing indoors with a large foam ball used for young children's tennis. I was looking for a foam ball that was closer in size and weight of a regular pickleball. The Gamma Foam Quiet Pickleball works well as a substitute. It is quiet and doesn't mark the walls. I tried it on my hardwood floors, but it bounces too high, but it actually works quite well on carpet. It is smaller and seems to be lighter than a regular pickleball, but overall, I'm happy with the purchase.
The process for purchasing was easy, and delivery to Canada was fast. I was even surprised to see a hand written "thanks" with my name on the bill. A nice personal touch.
I used these gamma practice balls for improving my serve. I put a masking tape box 35 inches up from my driveway by 35 by 10 inches high. Then I put a strip on the driveway 20 feet back. And practiced putting it into the box.the balls are very lively, and are quiet on the door. I’m now working on perfecting a killer serve in my own driveway and with no complaints from the neighbors! Win win! Thanks. Artie 4star
