Re(2): Update on new ball Posted on July 24, 2017 at 03:45:25 PM by Jeff "Laca" Conway
Alq - The court was designed to withstand just about anything hitting it. I understand a prototype court in Spain has had no issues - further confusing the issues.
At the moment, the goal is to find a ball that will not break the glass, but yet play well enough to reach the back wall like you said. I immediately thought of the soft Matt ball when they contacted me and it has been working fine since the batting practice ball - the same one we played with in June at Jai-alai Heaven - cracked after game 6 the other day ago.
These new balls I sent them will not crack, but I don't know about the glass wall holding up. Hope it does until the solution is found to stop the glass from cracking.
A solution may be on the way. I also understand their ball maker will be tightening some nylon and goat skin around them to test also.
With only a month left in the season, the show must go on either way. Replies: There have been no replies.
