Stiga One Star Table Tennis Balls, Fine for Basement Play!
Jan 29, 2008
Review by JBduckling
Rated a Very Helpful Review
Pros:The color reduces the glare, making the ball easier to see.
Cons:Colors are not really "official." In tournament play, only white or orange are allowed.
The Bottom Line: High quality table tennis balls at a great price! These balls are perfect for recreational or basement use. Why pay more when three stars are not needed?
After the ping-pong Santa delivered a Table Tennis table to our family, next step was buying replacement table tennis balls. What to buy? What to buy? What to buy! I did not know there was a rating and a purpose in purchasing table tennis balls, and this Epinion is here to share my wisdom with you and why the Stiga One Star Table Tennis balls are fine for every day use.

Why the "STAR" Rating? Ping pong or table tennis balls are rated, one, two, or three stars. The Stiga review will be on the one star rating.
Three Stars: The 3-star ball is carefully selected for roundness and consistency through a rigorous, industry leading, quality control process. It is certified for tournament play by the United States Association of Table Tennis (USATT) and the International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF). Colors can be either white or orange. Size is 40mm and is seamless.
Two Stars: 2-star ball is a 40mm premium quality ball ideal for service, robot, and multi-ball practice sessions. Also suited for club play. USATT approved. Again color is orange or white for tournament play. Most two star balls are seamless.
One Star: 1-star table tennis balls are usually seamless. Rounder and more consistent in bounce than Practice Balls. Perfect for practice and basement use.
No Star or Practice: Less quality, more durable but less spin and performance. Perfect again, for family basement use or recreational, non tournament play. Many top name brands, such as Stiga, are fine for basement and fun play.
Don't bother starting out with 3 star balls or "premium" balls as they are too expensive and not really worth it for beginners. Simply buy some 0 or 1 star balls from a reputable manufacturer such as Butterfly or Stiga. These will do perfectly.
Why the Stiga One Star Table Tennis Ball? It is regulation size, 40mm, compared to the "old" 38mm size. According to the box, they are regulation size and weight. The one star is fine for recreational play, and according to our play, they bounce just fine. The spin is excellent, with the top table, and control and play is fine. We purchased six balls for $2.99, a bargain compared to 3-stars for $1 each. Also, the colors take some of the glare off the ball, making it easier to play in the basement lighting.
Stiga 1 star table tennis balls, just perfect for recreation and basement play, why pay more?
