Re(3): hey guys

There is a slight difference between a "warm-ball" and a "cold-ball" but its hardly noticeable. Without the tape the ball is too fast and "takes-off" after the first bounce. As the tape wears, similar to the pelota skin, the ball may grip or slide off the side wall but I seriously doubt our players notice and I am confident that they cannot make use of this fact. Because there is little difference we use one ball until the top layer of tape wears thin or cracks then we swap it out. I remember this was a consideration at Florida Gaming to try and speed-up games by only using one ball - something I was against and we never did. The few player's from other roster's and some retired players who have played with it seem to genuinely like-it as it bounces true and is predictable off the rebote. LOL - the side wall and the bolts which affix the glass panels to the frame are another story entirely when they are hit. I'll see if one of our more technically savvy players can shoot a video of Arra, myself, Douglas or Tennessee wrapping a ball to post here - some of them do actually read the posts and might like to put-up something nice.
