Below are the main Tennis ball Pressurizer products available this year.
1)The ball rescuer is a clever remake of a concept that used to be on the internet called the Zombie tube which consisted of two pieces of Perspex which where screwed together to trap the metal rim of an existing pressure can .It worked well but relied on the integrity of the metal rim and was inherently dangerous because of this .It has disappeared so obviously there were problems .I am not sure how different the Ball Rescuer is in this respect so would be interested in any feedback from users of this concept
2) The Pascal Box is a great concept and easy to use without the need of a pump .It is sold mainly in Germany .It is Battery driven .I have no information on how long the batteries last .I’m not sure of the availability in different parts of the world .If you can get one and you can justify the price then its a great option
3) One of the many ‘screw together” ball savers that have been on the market for years .Some people love them ,others have issues with the rubber gaskets and still others struggle with the effort to screw them together sufficiently to get enough pressure to make a difference .Generally these concepts will slow the rate at which a ball goes flat but certainly won’t revive anything .
4)Turbox4 is a variant of the ball saver and uses a pump to increase the pressure so should work OK . It isn’t transparent which is important when trying to revive soft balls because you need to make sure they don’t collapse under the pressure that has been pumped into the container .Balls will not revive if they lose their shape
5) Turboplus is another “Screw together Ball Saver” .It’s not transparent and doesn’t need to be because there is no way it will develop enough pressure to collapse a ball. Once again ,it will slow the rate at which a ball goes flat and that seems to be all that some people require .
6) the P-Box is a great concept and easy to use without the need of a pump .It is sold mainly in Germany .It is Battery driven .I have no information on how long the batteries last .I’m not sure of the availability in different parts of the world .If you can get one and you can justify the price then its a great option
7) Pressureball has been on the market for 11 years now . It takes at least twice as many balls as any of the other concepts at a similar price to many of the others and of course significantly less than the Pascal Box .If you have a lot of balls that you wish to keep at optimum pressure then the multi tube options for Pressureball make it even more economical .Its a great option for tennis clubs who might require 8 or more balls for business house competition’s or club days and will save significantly on the number of balls used in a season for both clubs and individuals .
