Reviews of Donic 40+ 3-Star Poly Ball - Pack of 12 (10)
Play equal to new nittaku poly balls
The ball is supposed to weigh 2.7g (according to ITTF). Donic 40+ is significantly heavier than ideal. They seem to break quicker than other plastic balls I've used.
Weight: 2.8 +/- 0.02g (ITTF requires: 2.67-2.77g starting in 2016, used to be 2.82 max before).
Reluctant to give any poly ball a 5 star, but I have tried at least 6 brands and like these the best. Please can we have orange poly balls?
Out of a pack of 3, usually one is egg, one is half-egg and the other is usable. Break after 2-4 hours on average (shortest was 1 hour in my experience; longest 5 hours). This seems to be about average for most Poly balls though
Fairly hard, even compared to they celluloid ones. Fairly slow.
My ratings: hardness: Medium; roundness: Often egg; speed: 6.5; durability: average (for poly); consistency: usually different; overall: 5.2
I agree that these balls have better quality then Tibhar and DHS balls but I still think that they break to easy. They did not feel so different from the old Celluloid ball but they were not as round as the old Donic ball. Not as spiny as I was hoping for.
Got a pack of 3 a few weeks back. still using the same balls. These balls are far more durable than DHS n Tibhar. the speed, spin, hardness are almost similar to other 3* poly balls.
dont waste your money. I broke the first one after 1 game. The second broke within 2 minutes during warm up! This has no longevity at all.
I had some problems to play with new plastic 40+.Well made but you need time to get used.
I didn't like this polyball at all. My first try was with a Nittaku 40+ ball, that I quite liked. However, the Donic 40+ feels really different. Feels quite "heavy" when driving, but that's not too bad, we'd get used to this. It's noticeably slower than C-balls. But what I really disliked was the loss of spin, I felt like my stroke had almost no spin anymore, be that on topspin or backspins (on side spins, the balls still changes its trajectory a lot when hitting the table). I sincerely hope this kind of balls won't be used too much, I think table tennis would lose a lot of interest with them (I mean not only Donic ones, but all those who almost annihilate the spin).
Otherwise, the balls seemed kind of smooth, and rather resistant. None broken out of 3 on a 2 hours session.
This was the first polyball I played with in my club.
Drives felt the same as with the "old" celluloid ball, but loops felt very different. Low trajectory and rather wobbly. Nearly impossible to add a lot of spin to shots or serves, but I suppose that will improve after adjusting the strikes a litte bit.
Ball is a tad larger (+/- 0.4mm) than the celluloid ones which means a bit slower.
So far not convinced.
