Top critical review
Quality varies from batch to batch. Latest batch was HORRIBLE

UPDATED REVIEW 8/30/2018
The last batch of these balls that we received was ABSOLUTE GARBAGE. The outer cover material on ALL of the newest balls was peeling off and tearing within the fist couple of uses. The balls are falling apart and ready to be replaced after just a couple hours of use. I'm downgrading my original 4-star rating to just 1-star until the ball quality returns to what we experienced with earlier batches.
We buy dozens of these balls every year for our bubble soccer company. For the price, it generally can't be beat. Most of the 1-star reviews seem to be for single purchases where they received a defective ball. So far, the only defect we've experienced with these balls (hence, the 4-star instead of 5-star rating) was a couple of balls that started showing a different color material at the seams after several uses. Evidently, the ball material was previously a different color other than white and the material was re-dyed at the factory before the balls were manufactured. This only happened on a couple of balls purchased about a year ago. No other balls in more recent purchases have had this problem.
