ABS Trial Pack
In 2014 ITTF mandated that all ITTF sanctioned tournaments switch to using balls made a non-celluloid material. Manufacturers responded with a variety of seamed and seamless balls made from several different materials. But players never seems to really embrace the new balls as the bounce, sound, and playing characteristics were just a bit different that the celluloid balls our sport had used for over 100 years. Then in late 2017, balls made from ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene). This is a very common, harmless, and relatively inexpensive plastic used for many different applications, Important to table tennis; however, is its very good resistance to impacts. And as you can imagine, table tennis balls are subjected to thousands of table and racket impacts over their lifetime, so impact resistance is quite important when selecting a material for table tennis balls.

Once ABS balls were introduced, players began to prefer these balls over the original poly 40+ balls. And very soon, many important tournaments began using ABS balls as their Tournament Balls. Players report that the bounce and other playing characteristics of ABS balls are much closer to celluloid and more predictable.
