These might be fine for practice but most of the Penn balls I've gotten from Costco die much quicker than ones I've gotten from other locations. In fact, I stopped buying them a couple of years ago.

Manufacturers will cut corners for Costco orders to meet their pricepoint.

I usually see the opposite , dealers want costco business so they offer better compare to others . Because they sell them in higher bulk quantity .
But these regular Penn balls are not the higher quality Propenn for tournament use , I've bought cheaper cans from sport authority , target , walmart or just about anywhere and it's the same . What I do hate is buying a box only to find out 2 cans are flat .

if you stock for a long time, it is not going to be worth.

I would concur with this. The Duracell batteries I buy at Costco leak in all my devices from remote controls, flashlights, and toys. I haven't had that problem for decades until I recently started buying these packs from Costco.

Here's my "purely anecdotal" experience. Duracell batteries that I exclusively buy from Staples have been leaking all over the place. Therefore, Duracell must be cutting corners and producing an inferior product for Staples. I've never bought batteries from Costco.

Dunlop tennis balls for the win! Penns are horrible next to them but these are cheap. Awesome for practice.
