Outdoor Jai-alai balls

Posted on August 26, 2005 at 11:40:11 AM by Greg

Does everyone have an outdoor pelota they prefer.
Lets see if I can come up with them all.

1. The ever famous lacrosse ball.
This ball is mid-weight and fast
Cost: About $3.00

2. The Sako II ball.
lighter than lacrosee but slower
Cost: $18.00 on Ebay

3. The cesta killing doggy ball.
fast but much a heavier ball
Cost: $3.00-5.00

4. The manipulated golf ball pelota.
Is made by unwinding Titlist golf
balls and using that rubber to wind
over another golf ball until it is
the right size. I seen the great
Jack Patterson's home-made pelota
and it is the truest of all balls.
Cost: Countless hours of spare time.

5. The baseball with peeled skin.
Slowest ball. ok for Racq. court
Cost: A couple dollars

My personal fav would have to be the lacrosse ball cause it comes out for rebotes regardless of the back wall material.
