Table tennis balls changing

The cur­rent stan­dard mate­r­i­al for ping pong balls is nitro-cel­lu­lose which is extreme­ly flam­ma­ble. This is the rea­son ping pong balls can not be shipped via air­plane with­out spe­cial fire­proof con­tain­ers and are there­for usu­al­ly shipped by boat. Hence, there are new plas­tic balls which are just becom­ing avail­able which will one day be the only balls made. So far, the ear­ly word is that the balls def­i­nite­ly sound and play dif­fer­ent­ly. I believe it will be a few more months before the man­u­fac­tur­ing process is per­fect­ed.

There is also plans for a 1/2 orange 1/2 white ball which should help all play­ers iden­ti­fy the spin on the ball a bit eas­i­er.
