Reviews of Nittaku 2-Star Superior Poly Balls - Pack of 12 (6)
The ball is supposed to weigh 2.7g (according to ITTF) and it does. Extremely consistent and round. It's almost identical to Nittaku Premius 40+ except this one has slightly larger variations in weight. Most people want to play with 3 star balls - Nittaku's own standards are too high - it can easily qualify as a 3 star ball.
Weight: 2.7 +/- 0.02g (ITTF requires: 2.67-2.77g).
Excellent quality, durable, and bounce the same compared to the Nittaku 3-star premium. A hint lighter feel when you loop hard. But definitely worth the price difference.
Absolutely love playing with this Nittaku 2-star superior balls. Just as described in the product and other forums, this ball is made with the same material in the same factory as the Nittaku Premium 3-star balls.
All that's different is at the very last step of the process, Nittaku roll every ball down a long table, only the balls go perfectly straight is premium 3-star balls. The ones go slightly side by a bit (imagine still the short ends of a very long table) will be 2-star balls. The ones that go out on the sides become practice balls or are rejected. That's why Nittaku's balls are so expensive.
Honestly, the only negative on these balls (but same as any other brands) is that they get dirty much quicker. Lost the bright sharp white color and get the table color quickly. It's just the nature of any poly balls though.
Here's a video from how Nittaku make their balls:
Not worth the money saved. I would only buy the 3-star premium version. It turns out that the 3-star are less expensive since they last about 4 times longer. All of my 2-star broke in the first hour of smacking session. I will try Xushaofa 3-star next but will definitely avoid Nittaku 2-star.
I played this 2 stars japan ball and it is very good comparing to other 3 stars balls. Can not tell the different. Can be ordered in P. Palace now. It is cheaper because of not being ITTF approved. Try it in practice, you'll like it!
Looks, feels, and plays exactly like the Nittaku 3 star Premium ball. I got the chance to play with this and 3 star premium balls in practice. I couldn't tell the difference. Price is much cheaper than the Premium and they're actually available right now.
