The TOP pickleball meets current USA Pickleball Association's ball specifications
Like other outdoor pickleballs, this ball is "rotationally molded" meaning that a single chunk of hot plastic is placed inside a hollow rotating mold under low pressure until it has completely melted into the wall of the mold. Once it's cooled, the mold is separated to release the hollow plastic ball. The next step is to drill out the 40 holes to make a perfect pickleball.
If you cut up the ball, you will find the internal surface is smooth and completely continuous. The advantage of this manufacturing method is that you get consistent and even wall thickness. The ball is also stronger and will last longer than melting two half balls together. Please note that you will see a small line around the ball, these are marks from the mold and not a joint as most 2 piece balls would have.
