Not ITTF approved as far as I can see but "made by Yinhe" so a reputable manufacturer

Any other news of orange balls out there - I miss them !!!

Probably comes out the Minkow factory, as do DHS balls. Not sure what's holding them up - according to the Zeropong owner who posted about it some time back, there's some sort of hardness issue that crops up when you add the orange dye to the plastic, and they're still trying to figure it out. It'd be interesting to see how these balls play. Huichuan seems to be a subsidiary brand of Yinhe, Eacheng sells (or used to) a Huichuan blade. Oh wait, here it is:

It's listed under Yinhe, but there's no hint on the item itself that it's made by Yinhe. This one's a little more fancy than the one I bought 2-3 years ago.

Yes those are not bad balls, we've had them for a while too.

There is an orange balls on the latest approved list though:
57 Nittaku Nexcel 40+*** (Plastic with seam) orange

I suspect these will be expensive though.

Huichuan is made by Yinhe. Whether it's a subsidiary of Yinhe, or owned by someone else I don't know for sure.

I asked my local TT wholesale supplier to try to get the Orange Huichuan balls, since he already had stock of the White ABS 40+*** balls. And so far no luck and he still hasn't gotten them orange ones delivered. So I have to play white ABS plastic balls against a stark white painted walls of the office for background :P

Get him to look up Minkow. They are in Shanghai, and they're the ones who make the ABS balls for everyone. And they wholesale balls.

White ghosts? :lol: I don't think most Laowai would be able to exist on Taobao, since you need a local Chinese address to participate. If you have an agent, or live in China and can read/write Chinese (or can rely on a friend that does) that's a different matter.

So Hueison 3 star orange doesn't count? :lol:

HUIESON, will only do for robotic and multiball drills, for not having ITTF approval. The consistency of the balls not assured at all.

As I see ITTF logo, I trust the balls.

Actually, all the 'three star" (without ITTF approval) balls don't fit for competitive play. They don't meet all the ITTF specifications. You would find balls of different weight and different hardness in a box. The only virtue of the balls is a perfect roundness.

The balls missing ITTF logo are mostly welcomed by casual players, not by expert players.
When making a ball choice, the better players are always seeking for a consistency in play, first.

ITTF logo, as present on DHS orange balls, is considered with most people a "consistency sign".
