• The G40+ 3-Star Ball is the new plastic ITTF Approved Ball from Butterfly • Very round as the ball has the same thickness at all points • The bounce more closely resembles that of a celluloid ball • New material – New feel – New sound – New ball • Play the best, Play Butterfly • Made in Germany.
I do not recommend buying these. I personally don't mind playing with them, but a lot of people don't like them. They are just too different from the newer ABS balls. If you mix G40+ with other balls and play, you can really tell which one is G40+. It is bright, very smooth even when new and it has a tinny sound like it's broken. The ball leaves no residue on the rubber when new.
We use G40+ in our pingpong leagues training and tournament for quite sometimes now. Though not the best of the best, but It is one of the best money can buy. Personally I give a 9.0 overall grade. Happy pingponging guys
These balls have a very glossy surface compared to any other balls I've tried. The sound is a high pitch glass-like sound that I am not particularly fond of. I prefer balls with a rougher surface like the the Butterfly G40+ or, even better, Nittaku Premium 3 star.
Very solid ball, would definitely recommend. Occasionally I would hit the ball against the corner of the table by accident, but this only resulted in scuff marks or paint smudges. The ball is super reliable and does NOT break easily, compared to celluloid balls.
I really love this ball, it is the best ive ever tried! Very hard, round and glossy. It spins very well but the best part about this ball is its speed. Its really fast and the first time I used this ball I actually shot the ball out of the table several times! However after you get used to it you'll find it amazing. Also it bounced higher and longer tham any other plastic ball I have. The only balls that came close was the Butterfly master quality training ball, the butterfly easy ball and the kingnik 3 star seamless ball.
The only downside is that aside from being very durable, sometimes it cracks in very weird moments. I was in a looping rally with my partner and in the middle of the rally it just cracked. And it wasn't even along the seam! Also overtime the logo wears down too.
one last thing is compared to other balls, the sound is very crispy and sounds almost broken. For me I do not mind it but some others hate the sound.
Aside from all the negatives, this is still a great ball! Good job butterfly!
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).
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.
