Have you ever gotten to the court, only to find the perfectly good looking tennis balls you were going to use, have completely lost their bounce? Many players use a new can of balls each time they play, just to avoid this issue.
Tennis ball containers are pressurized at 14 psi so the tennis balls inside maintain their internal pressure. Tennis ball saving devices work under the same principle. By keeping the balls at the correct pressure, they protect them from the natural leakage that occurs.
Below are a few products you can buy to help save your tennis balls from going flat.
Tennis Ball Saver
The Tennis Ball Saver has been around for thirty years. It is the original way to keep your tennis balls fresh and bouncy, and it's "the bane of tennis ball companies". Tennis Ball Saver can keep three tennis balls bouncing like they are brand new. On Amazon, it gets 4.4 out of 5 stars with over 217 reviews!
PressureBall is a tennis ball pressurizer tube that ensures new tennis balls will never loose their bounce. By storing them in PressureBall, the balls will keep bouncing like brand new balls, until the felt wears out. PressureBall can store up to 8 balls at once, making it an affordable solution.
reBounces invented the first commercially proven technology to re-pressurize tennis balls for in large capacity drums. They have now shrunk this technology to a smaller size for everyday personal use.
But wait!!! Do they revitalize already flat balls?
According to reviews, and some answers on Amazon, it appears they do not always revitalize flat balls. Here is one answer to that question:
"It will add a little bounce, but they won't keep it and deflate quickly. This just extends the life of new balls."
So these devices can revitalize flat tennis balls, giving them 1 or 2 more lives, but they seem to be best at keeping your already good tennis balls from going flat between use.
