I have found batting against the orange balls easier if anything. I dont have the best reaction times, and especially in midweek games, using orange balls aid me as I can pick them earlier. I have no idea why, but I swear they come off the bat nicer as well.

I like the pink ones best. They too seem to ping off the bat more resoundingly.

Or it's a mindset your into, probably more likely tbh, things like this are very psychological....

I reckon if you played and struck a lovely 4 or  middled a few you'd be fine! I get like it with particular bowlers and find myself needlessly getting out to them at nets.

Yeah purchase one, and practice practice practice, then if you really cant pick it, go see someone! That's what i'd do anyway. You have any eye problems currently (i sound like an optician!)

I certianyl couldnt imagine using one! I'm just baout used to the yellow bowling mahcine balls!
