Really good ball that most people will love

by Joshua

Slower than S40+. The colour is far more matte than shiny. Very durable. Makes a great sound. Spins very well. Kicks more after the bounce than most balls. Doesn't bounce too high or too low. The vibration when you hit the ball feels more pleasant than other balls. Very controllable, where as the S40+ feels like it takes quite a bit more effort and commitment to control. Only complaint is that the R40+ is just a tad too slow. It needs to be 5% faster and made in Germany, and it'll be the perfect ball for today's rubbers. They'll appeal to everybody, from beginner to professional, it will play beautifully at any level.
