Wilson NCAA Official Game Basketball (30")
I bought this for my son who plays Club and High School basketball. He also practices everyday at the YMCA. He loves the grip of this ball. He has many balls but this is the one he keeps in his bag to play indoors only. It's his favorite.

The best INDOOR basketball on the market, hands down.
Let me preface this review by saying I play a lot of basketball, and in my experience the Solution is the BEST ball you can buy. This ball should ONLY be used indoors.
Solution v Evolution
Initially I wanted to buy the Evolution, but they were sold out so I "settled" for the Solution. These are the two best indoor basketballs on the market in my opinion. The Solution is the better ball by a pretty wide margin. I'd rate the Solution 10/10 and the Evolution 7/10. If you value grip and perfect shooting seams then this is the ball for you. The Evolution falls short on grip and overall quality, but it is a solid ball nontheless.
I can't speak towards the durability yet as I have only had the ball for a few weeks, but it has been perfect thus far.

The best ball I've come across so far.
This ball is great. I play highschool basketball and we use the spalding legacy. The legacy, to me, feels sort of spongy and fake. This ball feels nice, it doesn't feel fake and it has been a great ball for me. The best part - the laid channels, they have a great grip along with the rest of the ball. The ball is really nice for grip, it's not sticky or too tacky, but a good grippy feel. I decided to get this ball when I found my sisters ball outside this winter after she lost it this summer, and it was still grippy. I use it almost every day and it is holding up very well, and it will definitely be the next ball I get for myself.

It's a fine ball but the bottom line is that I realize now that I like the Evolution better. The real test is whether it is the ball of choice during pick-up games. It is regularly tossed aside for an Evolution or T-1000.

Best shooting ball ever. but wears quick
I've been through roughly 4 or 5 of these balls in the last year, and I save them for game balls only. The Solution is the best shooting ball ever...I mean unreal when it's new. Almost unfair I'm a 3 point specialist and I'm in range at 28 feet with this thing...like seriously shooting 70% in games. But it wears quickly and becomes overly spongy and slick after a month or even less if used a lot. Also for what it's worth it does have the most consistent bounce of any ball on the market. But the TF Legacy is the better all around ball b/c it lasts longer.

great grip, bad durability
amazing feel and grip. ball shoots great and handles well. on the downside- the ball had scuffs and scrapes after only 2 uses in the gym. These moisture absorbing, microfiber composite covers from wilson feel great, but are NOT durable. doesnt bounce as well as the tf-1000 spalding. BOTTOM LINE- balls feels awesome, but if your an everyday user it will wear out in a month.

The WTB0700 is a very good choice.
Specs:29.5" OC, inflated to 7.5 psig,(Range:7 to 9 Psig). Color: orangish (reddens with surface moisture) pebbled surface, stick index 6/10 (when clean), easy on the hands. Excellent control, flight and return. Durable lettering, symmetrical, roundness controlled with >3000M/>1.86Mi of 3-ply nylon cord for shape retention. Want long range net right out of the box? Hit the bucket at 34+ feet using both hands. The Wilson WTB0700 is game if you are. Enjoy:))

ALL I can say is that if you're going to buy a ball, that you should at least consider this ball
