    the green are effing wicked in the heat. it was 35+ at the euros, and kept in water they were pretty good. got a bit squigly after 10mins, but that is the fate of polo balls in hot climes.

    even though they are meant to be "the same as franklin" they fare much better and stay harder than the hot weather franklins, imo.

    These D-Gel balls are excellent for temps over about 18C... which isn't going to happen here in CHC 'till about November. They play more lively than Franklin reds in the heat but are way less bouncy than Mylec reds. I've got a few available - $10NZD for 2 + postage (usually $7 each) or get Ranga Dave to bring some back from Winter Whack ii and save postage.

    fark! there'd be few, if any, times that we're unfortunate enough up here to play in temperatures below 18C

    The D Gels are AMAZING. They have basically become THE go to ball for tournaments in NA.

    In super hot weather you CANNOT ice them or they will crack, but you can just dunk them in some cool water and theyll be good to go again though. They are more heat resistant than the Franklin Reds (and much easier to get your hands on) so cooling them is less of an issue anway.

    going to try a minkey (little kids) hockey ball on the weekend. probably not ideal but you can get them from hockey shops so if you need one urgently then they are at least available somewhere

    Hey BNE, did the D-gels arrive? Would welcome some feedback once you've had time to get familiar with them on court. Cheers.

    Hey, yeah they got here the other day. Had a few hits around with them since then. We play on a super rough court, and the balls get pretty airborne sometimes. I'm sure they will be a lot better when it gets a bit warmer. For solo practice though, they are really good: they require a bit more concentration to joint and control.
