If Viking could make their ball play more like the WIlson, then they could re-gain their position as best platform ball made, until then, go back to the drawing board. Unfortunately, Viking is owned by Prince, who makes one of the worst tennis balls ever made. So I hope you take our opinions seriously and make some corrections to the core of the ball and not just the flocking.
Side note, every tournament Ive played in this year used Wilson, whereas last year it was Viking. I think the word is out to not waste money on a case of Viking balls.

In the beginning of the year (2009-2010)it was discovered that there was a problem and the balls were sorted, balls that did not pass the test were sold as "practice balls". It sounds the balls you bought last year were 2 years old. Viking did come out with an "Extra Duty" last year (2010-2011) and fixed the problem. we checked our records and see a Gary York did make a couple of purchases from us dating back to 2009 but no Viking Balls so I can only say contact the Retailer and ask to return them.
Balls do change every year, we suggest you contact us in the beginning of each year before you buy balls. We play test balls every year and can offer the best advice.
