Yes, been impressed by the Tiflex/Oxbridge seconds that you can find on eBay. The seam holds up really well.

Has anyone tried these? Seem to be quite cheap .. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/303076689597?hash=item4690c746bd:g:q4UAAOSwcOBgNVbd

No but definitely a bat breaker!

Please use a league ball only, ask your captain for an old spare I'm sure they can help.

As a total novice in buying balls, what is it about these balls that make them a definate bat breaker. Is there some kind of certification to look out for that makes them a "league" ball?

I want to buy my son some new balls for nets.

Cheers

dukes and readers are the best UK balls - i expect most UK leagues use those - SG and Kookaburra make good balls but mostly on the overseas market - Oxbridge balls aren't bad - here are some decent balls that may fit a budget:

They won't catch us this time! Not this time! They haven't spotted us! No, they're all snoring in their bunks! Or, you know what? They're drinking at the bar, celebrating our sinking! Not yet, my friends. Not yet!

Thanks to everyone that replied. I'd actually seen those before, and have bitten the bullet and bought half a dozen.

However my question was a little broader than that- how can I tell which are good/bad ones before purchase? They all look the same to me! One poster definitively stated that one set of balls was poor- was this from experience of using them, or are there things to look for- good or bad? There was also a reference to "league" balls.
