Buy this basketball! Make sure you get the right one, though.
October 9, 2017
I should start by saying I loved this basketball so much I ordered a second one to have on standby in case anything happened to the first. However, the second one arrived and was much different and of a lesser quality. I looked through reviews and think the majority (if not all) of the 1-star reviews are from people who received the subpar ball from a seller instead of the listed ball.
This ball has great grip, holds air wonderfully and arrived inflated. I was happy to see a basketball arrive that was not deflated and shoved into a bag as this often times creases the ball and impacts it in the beginning of use. I loved the ball so much, I bought a second one within a few weeks! However, the second one was not the same basketball.
I have attached photos of the two basketballs that I ordered from the same product page. The higher quality and listed basketball was from Amazon while the cheaper version was sold by BargainsTODAY. I should have waited until the product was available from Amazon before ordering another. I paid for my impatience. If you are concerned about the 1-star reviews I think it is safe to assume they received the wrong basketball. You can even see this in some of the other photos.
