Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 70 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Objective Review -- One Flaw I bought this ball about a month ago and use it (all my basketballs actually) exclusively outdoors. About 3 times a week. Feels true to size if ever so slightly the tiniest little bit small. Not sure. But not enough to say definitively. The grip is good on this ball. If it gets wet or dusty, different story. The weight is good as well. Not heavy, not too light. After my use its held up well. Still looks almost new. Will probably last. It has held air as well. Now the negative: the bounce. Its next to dead. I'm used to my Wilson Evo (yes, even outdoors!). This just has a dead bounce. Multiple people have said "I like this ball". Then I say, yeah, but what about the bounce? And they always reply back "oh yeah. Kinda flat". If you're thinking I just need some more air in the puppy, think again. Its as hard as a rock. Still dead bounce. July 23, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great grip control Nice and light ball. I play basketball twice a week and have got good comments on the ball July 19, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Poor quality for Nike Basketball had heavy spots which made dribbling your regular . The rubber exterior seem to have slight bulging in certain spots July 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great value My sons are 11 and 13 and play a lot of basketball, so we've through a few basketballs over time. They rave about this one - it has good grip and bounce July 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by True grip ball Good grip on the ball makes it easier to handle. :) July 7, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great ball I do infact own this ball. I have put upward of 70 ours using this ball. Im only 13 so i have smaller hands but i can still grip this ball. Phanominal grip. July 1, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Everything I was looking for in an outdoor ball Being designed as an outdoor ball, this ball has great durability, grip, and bounce. I play on concrete and the unique grip pattern allows me to perform better follow-through on shots, and control the ball while dribbling even when the court is dirty. June 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Ball I recommend this ball. Got it for myself, kids have their own. May 30, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best outdoor ball ever! I got this ball for my 11 year old son about a year ago. He plays with it every day, and it still has great grip, especially on dusty/dirty courts. I liked it so much that I bought myself one too! May 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Outdoor Basketball I Ever Used For those seeking a ball with great grip and reasonable firmness for outdoor play, this is the ball for you. Playing outdoors typically renders grip useless pretty quickly. This ball has maintained its secure handling through hours of play on almost a daily basis. Admittedly the ball appears slightly harder as a result, losing a little softness off the rim. But it is only a slight complaint and it is worth that minor deficiency to have a ball that doesn't become slick within a few hours of use. Highly recommend for outdoor play. May 9, 2016
