Good soccer ball for the low price, but with low quality panel-bonding
I bought this soccer ball because it was the best one I found in a local store. I took it home and examined the ball before inflating it and a couple of the panels were pulling apart. The bonding seemed to be just some sort of glue that split easily. If the ball is ever not fully inflated and someone sits or stands on it, it's likely the panels will pull apart (because of the stress not supported by the bladder). The padding on the ball was nice and soft, and I liked the weight of the ball, but I returned it for the panel issue. Maybe I just got a bad ball, but I looked over several of the balls in the store before buying mine and the bonding was visible on all of them. This lead me to go a different route and return it instead of exchange it. If you're pretty easy on a soccer ball and don't abuse it much, this is probably a great ball for you. This ball should also be perfect for anyone between 12-15, but generally older players kick harder and put more wear on balls and I would not recommend it to them.
If you're looking for a similar ball around the same price, I just bought the Brine King 500. It also has thermally bonded panels, but the bonds are deeper inside the ball surface where you cannot see them like on the Wembley Trainer (meaning they won't separate easily). It also has about the same amount of padding with a slightly lighter weight (I think). The only thing I don't like about the King 500 is that the cover got a hole in it the first day. My friends and I were shooting and the ball flew over the goal and hit a fence several times. The ball still works just fine, but the cover might start to peel off over time. Luckily King 500s come with a 2 year warranty!
Hope that helps you make a decision.

Good ball but expensive
The ball is very good. But it was not shipped flat as mentioned on the website so my forwarder charged me more for shipping it to me. I found this ball in my local market for $41.00. But it costed me $73 here.
