Pressuriser cans, are they worth it?

This product is all the rage. Nobody knows what it is but everybody wants one. Nobody knows how beneficial they are for us. Do these pressuriser cans really work miracles? From M1 Tennis we have set out to dispel the doubts about it.

What do pressurisers do for us?

Let's start with something very simple. How these cans work: When we open a new can of tennis balls, it makes a depressurised sound, right? Well, it's not that at all. In order to maintain the pressure of the balls, they increase the pressure of the canister with respect to the balls so that they don't lose any pressure. The moment we open the can and the balls come into contact with unpressurised air, they start to lose pressure. That is why when we play with balls from a freshly opened can, we feel them more comfortable and we like the game more. Well, the pressurised cans are intended to do just that. That every time we put the balls away after a game, we do it in a can in which the pressure is increased, either to maintain the pressure of the balls or to make them recover some of it. This will depend on the pressurising instrument we use.

Can you choose between different options?

The idea is that every time you reopen these pressuriser canisters, it is like opening a new can of balls. Today we want to talk about several products from different brands of the many options that are on the market. In our tennis ball catalogue you will find these and many other products. Below we are going to recommend some of the options that you will find in our catalogue.

Pascal Box

The Pascal Box is a very accurate, high quality and reliable pressure canister. It is one of the best options we have today. It offers a very precise control of the pressure inside the canister by means of a manometer, and a valve that allows the canister to be filled with air by means of a small pump. Thanks to this we can have a precise control of the pressure we want to have inside the ball. By being able to have an ideal pressure for the tennis ball, it will allow us to extend the life of our balls and even recover some balls that we thought were lost. Being able to provide the exact pressure for the tennis balls will help the balls to recover some internal pressure.

29 PSI

Another option is the 29PSI pressuriser. A much smaller device, the size of a ball canister, which does not need any external device to operate. It is a cheaper and more convenient solution, but it offers a lower pressure inside the canister. This is logical as we cannot introduce air through a valve. By simply screwing the canister we can increase the pressure inside the canister. We can't control the pressure inside the canister so we don't know if the ball is recovering or not. The Plus Tube will help you to extend the life of the ball, but after a while you will need a change of tennis balls. Find this pressuriser canister here.
There is also the option of using the top of the range air pump (sold separately, or in a pack), which allows you to inject air into the cylinder and increase the pressure, allowing you to fully recover your balls.
Easy to use and durable.

Head Pressuriser

Tennis balls lose pressure and quality with continuous use. As soon as they are opened from their original packaging, they begin to degrade rapidly, forcing players to buy new balls frequently. This situation not only represents an economic expense, but also contributes to increased environmental pollution due to frequent ball disposal.

Introducing the Head Pressuriser collection, an environmentally friendly, sustainable and cost-effective solution designed to extend the life of tennis and padel balls. These pressurisers maintain and restore the quality of the balls, ensuring they always look like they just came out of the shop.

Do pressurisers work?

The decisive moment has arrived and from M1 tennis we confirm it. Our answer is a resounding yes, we recommend you buy them. This is an investment as you will end up saving on tennis balls, either because you get to keep the pressure or because you make the balls recover some internal pressure. With these devices you can increase the life span of the balls. In addition, playing with balls with many matches means that the balls have less and less pressure, which results in less ball output and therefore, in more aggressive movements to achieve certain shots. This can cause some muscular discomfort due to overexertion.
