Rated 4 out of 5 by Guslp260 Not EXACTLY what I wanted but close
The ball is very sturdy and can handle being slammed without busting. For some reason on occasional slams it will bounce at an angle and it doesn't bounce as well as I would prefer. I use a lot of "heavy dribbles" which is basically a slam but the athlete stops the momentum of the ball before it get higher than eye level. Obviously a more aggressive bounce is best for this but these balls still beat most of the alternatives. For the record I've only had one med ball that was exactly what I wanted and it "disappeared" from my gym last year. I can't remember what brand it was.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ianieto Best Medicine ball at local Stores
I really like using this medicine ball line. They are solid and sturdy and feel high quality. I am starting to slam the balls down in my exercise routines but one thing I don't like is that when I slam the balls down they do not always bounce straight back up. It is as if the density of the ball is not quite consistent throughout. I have the 4lb, 6lb, 8lb, 10lb, and 12lb balls and they all have the same issue but the 8lb is the worst and the 10lb one is close second. But from what I have seen, there was no better medicine ball out there that I could find at my local stores. I am not sure how the Fitness Gear rubber balls compare with other brands online. The price was higher than I wanted to pay but buying them with the promotional helped a lot. I will consider purchasing the 15lb and 20lb balls in the future but they are expensive.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jeremy good product, but...
I ordered two of these for medicine ball pushups and was impressed with how sturdy they are. I'm a pretty large guy and the do not cave in like some of the lower priced medicine balls from a large, blue themed competitor. However the claim of 10% off of my online order for signing up for a Dick's online account was not honored when my order was completed

These medicine ball is rock solid and good for any workout I can think of. My workouts involve slamming the ball into the ground and standing on it (among others) and this ball is sturdy. I'd rate it a 5 if it was a bit cheaper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Josh the Tread Shredder I want to buy more of these.
I use this product with P90X2. I am just into my third week but so far this medicine ball is holding up very well. I really like the textured surface that really helps with grip when my hands get sweaty. The price is competitive but still seems like an awful lot to me for a weighted ball.

I use this ball for cardio workouts/core workouts and to warm up for TRX work outs. I love the dimple finger grab surface.
