The ball is supposed to weigh 2.7g (according to ITTF). G40+ is heavier than ideal. However, it is very round and it leaves no residue on the rubber when new unlike Nittaku Premium 40+.
Weight: 2.76 +/- 0.03g (ITTF requires: 2.67-2.77g).
Absolutely detest this ball. Seems to spin less and play a lot slower than the Nittaku Premium and XSF 3 star balls. If you exclusively flat hit, I think you will love this ball.
this plastic ball made in Germany is definitely the best one on the market you can get currently.
I just received my order of a dozen G40+ balls from megaspin and tested them for roundness. 5 out of 12 were imperfect. I also bought 3 Nittaku Premium balls and all were perfectly round. First of all, these new balls are over priced (including Nittaku balls). For this price, the balls should be perfectly round. Made in Germany vs Japan. There you go.
Very soft and quick to pick up nicks. These are one of the worst 40+ balls I've tried to date.
Soft and easily nicked. Pretty embarrassing for Butterfly, especially at that price. Buy Nittaku or XuShaoFa instead.
Pretty solid balls, actually. Been playing hard for hours a day (for about a month) and haven't broken one yet. They sound like jingles bells, which amuses me greatly.
this ball surface is some glossy which anti to get wet, many other ball surface is rough so water stick to surfaces easy.
compare to Donic 40+poly, Buttlefly 40+poly longer bouncing time and some sound tick pitch which Donic doesn't, but when playing Buttlefly's ball feel heavier. Haven't try Nittaku 40+poly yet, it's hard to find seller in my nearly local area. Buttlefly 40+poly always my first choice.
I wanted to start by saying many have already observed in most poly balls, they left groves on the balls easily after say a couple hours of playing. If yours last days, like mines lasted for over 2 weeks (that's close to 10 days and 2+ hours of playing each day), by now the groves becomes finer and more worn in. And the logo faded too. Air still tight and bounce good. Hardness still the same.
That being said, I've had one ball literally cracked in half mid way through the air after hitting off my paddle/rubber sweet spot. It wasn't from a bad smash or contact. But I considered that as an abnormally. My other balls (like 4 of them now) last fine and a long time.
I gave the consistency only a 7 out of 10. Because 1 of the 12 ball carton I got has an unsmooth extra piece of plastic around the seem, as if it's not sanded or trimmed off properly during the manufacturing process. But all my other 11 balls are good. Yes, so I'm kind of a tough grader, well I better be, when paying $3.33/ball!
My friend's older G40+ did not crack or got soft or anything, but interestingly enough, it lost air! So it didn't bounce right anymore. He said he used that same ball for close to a month. Again, he's not much of a smasher or dead hitter either. So go figure! Not bad if $3.33 can last for 3+ weeks to 1 month from my average observation.
