Heavy weight means that they do not feel too light after a long match on hard courts.
Too heavy and very 'dead' feel. Risk of injury and broken strings. Despite the 'hydroguard' they are practically unplayable on damp astroturf courts due to their heavy weight.
This ball is good for those who play on hard courts (tarmac) and who have a lot of power, relying little on 'feel'. For anyone else, they provide a very poor playing experience. Anyone who plays on astroturf or indoors should avoid these. Essentially, they are heavy and feel 'dead'. Slazenger make many good tennis balls, but this is not one of them.
