Unread postAuthor: audioman81 » Wed Feb 21, 2007 8:57 pm

yes they fit well in 2" schedule 40 they would be about $.87 per ball shipped. about the same price as regular tennis balls at the store.

trae08- you should read what you type before you post it, your last post makes no sense.

He made two topics because one of them is in Classifieds, so people can order them from him.

nice find. make sure you measure them if you get them because I am not going through with this group buy because i got a couple of the yellow ones I was planning on getting above to make sure they work and they are 1.9" in diameter and a 2" pvc sch 40 is 2.062" id. so they fit really sloppy. they shoot ok, but not as well as planned. I did however find an even smaller version that is 1.485" in diameter and fits well in a 1.5" pvc not snug, but it doesnt roll out easily. they were $3.89 for a 3 pack at Mills fleet farm. they are orange tennis ball looking cat toys that say 9Lives on it. they are hard as a rock tho and shot at just over 350fps with only 40 psi in my launcher, and just over 550fps with 125psi.
