Many players prefer their bounce and durability over seamed poly balls on the market.
Available in white only.
XSF's exclusive technology creates balls as a single unit, not by fusing parts together under old methods. By getting rid of seams, we also got rid of unevenness in shape, weight and thickness that prevented a clean and accurate bounce in the past. XSF eliminated those inconsistencies in performance caused by the ball, not by you.
Seamless balls have no soft spots. XSF are tougher, more durable, and consistent all around.

Reviews of XuShaoFa (XSF) 3-Star Poly Ball 40+ - Pack of 6 (37)
Game is over for all seamed ball!. This Xushaofa 40+, *** ball is much better than any other balls I ever used. It has better bounces than Nittaku 40+ premium.
This is the best and most durable of the plastic balls. Unfortunately, it is currently not the one in use at the top tournaments (but my guess is that if people care about this sport, it will ultimately be at some point). That said, if plastic balls are frustrating you, give this one a try. It is the cheapest and bounces at least as high as celluloid. Very hard to break (exceptionally high impact speeds against hard surfaces and edges required).
If you have any influence, get this ball to be used at more tournaments.
By far the best plastic ball made today in terms of (1) bounce, (2) roundness, (3) visibility, and (4) durability. Bounces slightly higher than celluloid from the same drop height. Almost indestructible, and a very bright white. A little less spin and speed compared to celluloid, since it is 40+, but much better than any of the other plastic balls I have tried.
One of the best balls i have seen tbh.
Very hard feel to them, and high bounce. They look a bit too white compared with other balls.
Sound is not that much different from regular 40 cell balls.
They retain a new feel for a long time. These balls do not become overly smooth over time.
To me there are simular to a regular BTW 3 stars.
The XuShoafa (pronounced Shh-sowl-fu) ball is one of the better balls on the market however you will need to adapt and change your game to work with its own characteristics.. If your looking for a ball that plays very near to a celluloid ball this is NOT it.
Of all the balls available this in my opinion is the furthest away from Celluloid. I suspect the hardness is due to the early balls cracking like eggs and the plastic mixture having to be modified to reduce this happening.
The ball bounces higher and is very difficult to spin as the hardness does not allow any "give" to help with increased ball contact. Players who like to play back spin.. forget it. Attacking loopers you will need to realy lift the ball to impart any spin. A lot of players are now flat driving balls rather than looping.
Comparing to the Kingnik ball (also seamless) The XuShoaFa ball is lacking in a number of departments to be an ideal celluloid ball replacement
I've tried easily 20 different brands of 40+ balls. These seamless balls and the Nittaku Premium balls are easily the best balls out there. They're harder, bounce higher, bounce more consistently and last longer. Against, for example, the Stiga, DHS, Double Fish, Joola and Butterfly equivalents these are much better.
Best Poly Ball, better than Butterfly Premium
40+ Poly Ball in term of bounce and feel
Xushaofa balls are seamless. They bounce a bit longer than ABS balls. It's rare to find a ball that is not round, but I've seen them. I found Xushaofa balls break more frequently if you hit them with a blade edge compared to ABS balls. If you hit them with rubber they will last.
Along with yinhe made from same factory they are currently 40+ balls. Extremely durable tiny bit lighter than Nittaku premium 40+ balls.
Bought a 72 pack from zeropong.com ... and 3 out of 5 were goose egg unround duds. Against my better judgement and caving to peer pressure, I bought 12 from Megaspin. The XSF from Megaspin were solid and round. Props to megaspin.
The ball is supposed to weigh 2.7g (according to ITTF). XSF 40+ is heavier than ideal. But it is very round, similar to Nittaku Premium 40+ and Butterfly G40+. The ball is seamless.
Weight: 2.75 +/- 0.02g (ITTF requires: 2.67-2.77g). This ball cracks faster than other 40+ balls when hit with the edge of the racket. If you never hit it with the edge it's durable.
These are the best 40+ balls I have used so far.
In terms of quality and price, these are unbeatable.
Best plastic balls I use. Get them, they're consistent, have good bounce, and have a quality feeling to them.
this is the best ball, the quality is great for a poly ball, its not as heavy as the overpriced Nittaku, which I do not see as a disadvantage, the price is very fair because I've found quality and performance issues with many of the cheer poly balls, as for the durability - it's good enough, this is the brand I'll stick to for now
Great quality, i played for weeks without any problem. The sound and weight are perfect, this is the best ball compare to other brands out there.
best poly balls I have played with so far....durable...consistent...hard...as a big surprise compared to other poly balls found them much easier to chop from a distance with LP. In India...imported by GKI...which slashes the prices by about 22 %.
Good ball. I think these are one of the better plastic balls on the market today.
Quite fast and not very light unlike other plastic balls whose manufacturer put light weight for better control ( the reason I hate Tibhar 3 star)
One of the best poly balls. Little diffrerence from the celluloid balls. More hard, slow and more weight than the celluloid balls. Identical 'close to the table' players, because it wobbles in the air in long distacne. Not bad durability, as well.
Widely regarded as the best 40+ 3* poly ball available. Most other good balls are re badged XuShaoFa balls, as they come from the same factory that makes XuShaoFa. So if most quality balls are XuShaoFa with different branding, then why not just buy these In the first place. Mine are good, no complaints.
Great balls, i bought 144 pack if remember, and i ve used em for 4 months roughly, I'm impressed with the quality of this ball it's very well balanced it can bounce a little longer than any other that I ve compared like, nittaku or joola
I never seen one crack so far except whenever stepped on it by mistake, since training with a bunch:)many of my training friends were impressed as well.
I'm going to buy again! Very happy with it.
These balls are super durable compared to seamed balls. I bought a 6-pack of these XuShaoFa balls for the office. One ball probably sees an average of 5-6 matches per day, and we usually end up smashing the ball into the walls quite a bit because the room is not ideally sized for table tennis. For a few months we only used one ball until it finally got a small crack, so now we're on to ball #2 for the last month and it's still going strong, and I still have 4 completely unused balls. In contrast, we went through 50 3-star Stiga balls in roughly the same amount of time. I highly recommend the XuShaoFa balls for recreational play. They are an excellent value, even being 4 times more expensive than a seamed celluloid ball.
At first didn't even bother to check this one, been using Btfly 40+ and Nittaku Premium 40+. One fine day played a very fast and good game nad realised was this XSF. Seamless and perfectly balanced, I didn't get that mid air wobbling some players mentioned about. All I got pretty good consistency, but the balls get "tired" after over 50 hours total combined play time. What I mean is... I found over time they were not as bouncy anymore during play and drop test also confirmed my feelings about the ball, so when use new ball its wonderful... But again after a period it gets dull and loses its playabilty. Luckily none has cracked on me so far. I purchased 6 and my buddy 6. One of his cracked after long hard play. Now testing Btfly G40+. Impressive and lovin i so far. One G40+ has already cracked on me nonetheless.
pros: hard, durable.
cons: plenty of defects; lack of roundness.
came back to the sport after 3 years off. plastic balls are still not half as consistent as fake DHS 3* celluloid. in my experience, 3 out of 5 have manufacturing errors (flat spots, not round).
playing with different plastic balls (nittaku, xushaofa, butterfly) is more different than 38mm to 40mm gameplay; and is exacerbated by the lack of consistency WITHIN THE SAME BRAND.
resellers should be able to send back mass quantities for to the manufacturers for refunds and apologies. still am going to buy another 12 balls, because these are being used at the next tournament.
I'm proud of this XuShaoFa 3-star Balls of Chinese make that can finally beat most Japanese and other mades All Chinese and Chinese-overseas should support
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: hard. roundness: Rarely egg. speed: 8.2. durability: average (for poly). consistency: occasional variations overall: 7.8
Probably the best seamless ball there is and one of the best overall (i've heard great things about the seamed nittakus but haven't use them). Like any other plastic ball it suffers when flat hitting it, but its quality it's oustanding. Currently there's a lower quality assurance and a spike in price, but still a very recommendable ball
I bought this ball 3 months ago (a pack of 3) and till now I am playing with the second ball. I usually break a ball in 10-15 days. But this ball lasted a long. These balls are bit softer that Butterfly G40+ but more consistent, every time they are round and if you are searching for a very fast and durable ball go for this. You will not regret.
