For many people, XuShaofa may be a brand they’ve never heard of in their life. Even for table tennis players, most of them also find this name strange. However, if you want to find high-quality seamless poly table tennis balls, then you should try this brand.
What’s Good About XuShaofa?
The ball is very solid and round. Most people have an issue with seamed balls as they tend to easy break and cause them to spend more money to buy more balls. With the invention of this XuShaofa seamless plastic balls, the issue has reduced a lot and saved them the cost of playing or training on table tennis.
We have been testing the balls for a couple of days, and I can say this ball is round and solid. The solidity that I mean is it’s heavier than the ordinary celluloid balls, and also, it is more consistent when playing in a loop.
- It is made of poly plastic material, making it safer and more durable than the traditional celluloid ball.
- It is built as a whole ball unit that is seamless. Which mean you will not find any seams like the typical celluloid balls.
- XuShaofa is more durable compared to balls manufactured by other companies.
- It can provide you with more resistant.
- More consistent all around.
- Perfect and constant bounce.
- Innovative construction technology.
It is Heavier
Because it is a bit heavier, you really can feel the ball in your racket. Thus, you have a great feeling even with rackets with carbon layers. You can feel better by touching around your racket, whether it is in the tip or close to the angle of your handle. All these can give you a lot of precision and improve the position in your hand.
One of the things worth mentioning is the ball comes faster, especially at the backhand side. It would be best to get used to it slightly by taking maybe one training session to play with the ball. Once you are familiar with the hands-on, you will be able to have reasonable control over it.
The ball has excellent bounce and can go up to your chest quite fast. So you need to keep an excellent technique to get the ball off the balance if you want to try to block the ball. For serving or receiving with your forehand and backhand, this ball performs very well. It is also the same as the topspin and against stop ball.
You can get a very nice spin with this XuShaofa table tennis ball. There’s a lot of grip in it where you can play with your rubber. So you really can see a lot of improvement compared with the standard celluloid balls you have.
Seamless vs Seam Ball
If you cut the seamless and seam ball into two halves, the difference is more evident.
The seamless ball’s thickness is the same, so the landing point’s accuracy and the bounce uniformity is better.
I managed to take a photo of the seam ball cut into two halves. We can see differences in the seam’s thickness between the three parts of the seam, waist and bottom, from the picture.
We only need to press the three different parts with the same finger to feel the thickness difference. Because of the difference in thickness, when the ball is shot at the same speed, but other parts are bounced on the table or touched by the racket, the bounce direction, speed, and strength can differ.
It will lead to the player misjudging the height of the bounce and the ball’s trajectory. If you make a mistake, you will lose points.
Even amateur players will have such experience where they are very confident in hitting but inexplicably got shot off the net or out of the bound. The main reason for this is caused by the different bounces in various parts of the seam ball.
Advantages of Xushaofa Seam Ball
Offer you with even bounce.
The more obvious advantage of a seam ball is the excellent bounce it offers you. You can do a simple test by using some seam balls together with Xushaofa seamless ball. You can drop a seamless ball and a seamless ball simultaneously on a table tennis table and observe the bounce quality.
You will notice that the bounce of XuShaofa is the highest and more consistency. Xushaofa also takes the longest time to stop the bounce. The frequency is higher than the seam ball, and the ball getting hit is even farther than other seam balls.
When playing the sidespin at the mid-table, the Xushaofa seamless ball bounces with great trajectory and fast speed. It may be because the ball is evenly stressed, and there is no side seam, so the ball does not feel flickering under any conditions.
When I did a spinning test on the table, the seamless ball did not jitter or having irregular spin during spin test.
Feel a little heavy in the hand
When playing close to the table, the feel of the ball is relatively stable. It is slightly heavier than the other seam balls. When playing at the mid and far distance from the table, the ball feels sinking.
Not easy to crack
The Xushaofa seamless ball is quick durable. It does not crack easily. I have tried to make ferocious smash continuously, and I found no cracking on the ball. The other seam ball that I tried with the same playing stroke has already cracked at the joints.
Xu Shaofa seamless 40+ 3-star table tennis ball is ITTF approved ball for international competition because it is durable, stable, and has good bounce.
After all, XuShaofa table tennis ball is the most revolutionary and advanced table tennis ball maker on the market. If you want to play with the best ball, you should play with this brand. I would recommend this ball to everybody who wants to have an excellent and high-quality training session.
