ONIX FIRESTORM ON FACEBOOK
North Carolina Pickleball
Special ONIX Comment Edition
Social media has been a firestorm this past week as players both junior and pro post their comments about the new ball on Facebook. The center of the controversy is how the ball plays and the decision to use the ball at the upcoming Tournament of Champions. Below are but a few of the comments posted this week as Rodney Allman, Charlotte area, posted a survey that quickly turned into a “firestorm” of comments.
In closing, like anything else “time will tell” The dura ball has it’s own set of problems like “getting out of round plus wobbles” so there are pros and cons for each. Visit the USAPA web site for all approved balls at http://ipickleball.org/rules/List%20of%20Approved%20Balls.pdf . Remember that approved balls only apply to sanctioned tournaments. My recommendation is, choose the ball you like and enjoy the game.
