Buying Tips

Wilson® basketballs inspire confidence in your game. Details like low-density sponge-rubber, laid-in channels and the brandís proprietary Cushion Core Technology™ help you make the most of every shot.

Many Wilson® basketballs are designed with a soft-touch composite cover for durability and exceptional feel. Modern basketballs feature a rubber bladder, which serves as an airtight water chamber for the ball. Threads of polyester or nylon wrap around the bladder to ensure it maintains its shape after hours of play.

Most basketballs are specially designed for indoor or outdoor play. Indoor balls offer softer touch on fingertips, while outdoor balls are crafted for durability, creating a harder touch for hands.
