HOW IT WORKS

TuboPlus pressurizers are comfortable and easy to use, but if you need help, here are some tips so you can learn how to use them and get the most out of your balls 😉

It is important to know that the quality of tennis and padel balls influences your condition and recovery. Can old balls be recovered? Yes, but it is a slow and tedious procedure. We recommend you start using our products with new balls. Thus, they will always remain in perfect condition.

We also recommend you pressurize the balls right after each game or practice. Inactivity, together with the cold, are the main causes of pressure loss in the balls. How many hours do you have to pressurize the balls? There is no set time. It will be enough that you leave them pressurizing between games.

How long will the balls last using TuboPlus? It depends on the quality of the balls and the use that is given to them. It must be taken into account that the rubber acts like a spring and weakens with impacts. Also the balls lose their hair over time. For this reason, even if the pressure remains intact, there will come a time when you have to change the balls again. Even so, we can assure you that your balls will last up to four times longer!

HOW ARE TUBOPLUS PRESSURIZERS USED?

TUBOX3 CRYSTAL / TUBOX4 CRYSTAL

Initial Recommendation: If you want to completely fill a new ball with air, without having previously used it, open the ball canister 48 hours before playing and pressurize the balls to 36 PSI. Thus, you will completely complete its capacity. Being new, they support greater thrust pressure almost without deforming.

How much pressure to apply?: Our recommendation is to apply 29 PSI pressure to your balls after each use to achieve maximum pressure.

How long to pressurize?: Do not worry about the time that passes between each pressurization. The important thing is that from the time you finish playing until the next use, no matter how much time passes, the balls must be pressurized.

You should keep in mind: Inactivity and cold are the main causes of air loss (pressure) from the balls.

CUBOPLUS X100

Initial recommendation: To find out what the ideal pressure is for your CuboPlus X100, introduce air with a pump or a compressor until the safety valve pops, regulated between 20 and 24 PSI. Memorize how many PSI it has jumped to so you know what pressure to give the next times you use the product.

Remember that when the safety valve pops, the air will be eliminated, reducing the pressure to 13 PSI. For this reason, you must re-introduce air up to the limit set by the safety valve.

How much pressure to apply?: Our recommendation is to apply 20 PSI pressure to your balls after each use to achieve maximum pressure and prevent the rubber from suffering. Thus, it will offer a better bounce for much longer.

How long to pressurize?: Do not worry about the time that passes between each pressurization. The important thing is that from the time you finish playing until the next use, no matter how much time passes, the balls must be pressurized.

You should keep in mind: Inactivity and cold are the main causes of air loss (pressure) from the balls.

The best of CuboPlusX100: CuboPlusX100 does not allow more pressure than the safety valve marks, so the rubber will maintain a cleaner and more homogeneous rebound for much longer.

TuboX3 Crystal and TuboX4 Crystal recommendations:

  • All balls have a pressure between 11.5 and 13.5 PSI.
  • The balls recover their pressure little by little through the pore of the rubber, just as it happens with the loss of pressure. The more air they need, the longer it will take them to recover.
  • Be careful! If you apply too much pressure, it is possible for the ball to flatten and break.
  • New balls are sold with different pressures inside the tubes. TuboPlus pressurizers equalize the pressure of all balls.
  • Balls that regain their pressure can grow in size.
  • Any pressure above 14 PSI allows the balls to recover pressure.
  • The bounce of the balls is thanks to the rubber, which has a spring effect. Little by little this material weakens and loses quality, so over time the pressure will be maintained but the rebound will worsen.
  • We recommend that you pressurize the balls at 29 PSI, but if you are more methodical and want your balls to have a certain speed, consult the following table ⬇️.

CuboPlus X100 Recommendations:

CuboPlus X100 not only multiplies the useful life of the balls, but also improves their bounce. This is demonstrated by the independent study carried out by Decathlon for its tennis brand Artengo. Product engineer and tennis player Manon Martin checked the compression status and rebound height of balls pressurized with CuboPlus X100 every day for a month, after each intense training session she did.

The results, attached on this page, show that the quality of the rebound and compression of the pressurized balls improved exponentially. After a month, at the end of the test, the balls that had been heavily pressurized in the CuboPlus X100 were still far higher in rebound height and compression than when they were purchased.

CuboPlus X100 is recommended for tennis and padel professionals, such as schools, clubs and instructors. It is a high-capacity pressurizer that allows you to recover the pressure of 102 balls at a time, and allows you to complete the course with just two boxes of balls.

The strong point of CuboPlus X100 is that since it cannot be given more pressure than the one regulated by the safety valve, between 20 and 24 PSI, the rubber stays in better condition for longer, offering a cleaner and more homogeneous rebound during months. Do training balls lose the same pressure as match balls? No. First of all, because they spread the impacts among more balls. And, secondly, because the training balls are in motion from Monday to Friday, or on weekends.

The air molecules are active by spending more hours in motion, so the air stays inside the ball for longer. It must be remembered that inactivity is the main cause of air removal from the ball. It is very important that they recover their pressure but that it does not spoil and the rubber suffer.

DO YOU WANT MORE INFORMATION?

  • The cold or heat, the altitude, the level of play, the sport that is practiced (tennis or paddle), the assiduity, the level of play, the number of impacts, the quality of the rubber or the surface on which the sport is practiced can vary the pressure needs that must be given to the pressurizers.
  • Be careful! The TuboPlus pressurizers that have a pressure injection system by means of a pump can be put much more pressure than recommended, but that harms the balls.
  • The problem with pressurizing balls to high levels is that they can get egg-shaped and then have a bad bounce.
