    I've been getting good results using squash balls between wooden plinths to create a sort of suspended chassis for my Technics SP-10.

    I am using Wilson single yellow dot balls - its all they had in my local JB sports -but am thinking they are just a bit too squashy and soft, so would like to try something firmer.

    What balls are firmer - what colour of dot should I be looking for?

    thanks.

    Sidegrading between balls of differing bounce dynamics will not make that much of a difference to the stability of your plinth IMO. You may get firmer grounding by doubling the number of balls you use.

    No single dot balls are the squashiest. If you want firmer balls go for a club players double dot (they bounce more and are therefore easier to play with), ir even the bigger blue beginners balls. Very firm and bouncy.

    If I'm not mistaken these are actually Raquetballs. (Played with whats best described as a short handled tennis racket)



    For Squash balls - the more dots the less bounce
    Ridicule is nothing to be scared of
