Are Takraw Balls Hard?

Some players prefer heavier balls for additional bounce or when playing outside to minimize the effects of the wind. Others prefer the softer balls which have less bounce. Newer players always start with the softer (and lighter) balls.

Considering the balls only weigh 5-8 ounces, from a non-player standpoint, it doesn't appear that there is much difference!

Another thing to consider is the "weave". The tightness of the weave effects the spring, bounce and speed of the ball.
