Rated 4 out of 5 by Quigzilla Great ball, but doesn't last very long...
The Wilson Official AVP Ball, is one of the more popular volleyballs out on the market. One can go to any outdoor volleyball pick-up game and someone will have this exact ball. The ball is casted well, its very soft and forgiving. It's only down side, is due to its softness the ball will not last long. Most people I know that own this ball extend it's life by crazy glueing its leaks that develop after a few months of use.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Doubles Vballer Rip Off - Buy a Spalding KOB instead
These Wilson AVP's are a Rip Off! They cost more for less quality. They are okay when you first buy them, but they do not last long at all. After a small amount of use, they start aging fast. They swell up and get too smooth. Its like playing volleyball with a small basketball. I know AVP uses them, but they get an endless supply of free new balls. You wont see AVP using a ball that's a few months old because they are HORRIBLE by then. I will only buy Spalding's from here out. I play pickup at least twice a week and my Spalding KOB that I still use is 3 years old and still good to go!

Rated 5 out of 5 by VolleyBill This one is the best!!!
Don't even waste your money on a cheaper ball unless you don't want it to last and you like your arms to sting after a dig. I have been using these in local league competitions for about 5 years now and these are well worth a few extra bucks. Don't be fooled by the AVP replica ball at 1/3 the price as it is not even close. These balls last a long time even in the elements and if you are so inclined you can scrub them up with some dish soap and water and let them dry and it's just like getting a new ball again. Seams hold up very well and they retain their roundness. If they are good enough for the AVP; 'nuf said!! Bill

Rated 4 out of 5 by spikinlikeagirl Great ball!!
This is a very nice ball! It actually feels like a real ball.
My other ball was getting old so I went out ball shopping. I was by astounded the lack of good balls! Most of the ones I looked at felt like they had foam in between the bladder and the outside and the pieces on the outside were just glued on instead of stiched! So when I found this ball I was impressed. No foam and it's stiched! Overall a quality ball!
I still like my old ball but this is a good one as well!
Btw I had to order online as the dicks near me does not stock this ball.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SB Too expensive
Product is fine, but I found the exact same product later for 25% less at another retail location, and it wasn't even on sale...regular price at 25% less than at Dick's. Your pricing is not competitive, and I wish I had bought it elsewhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by VBall14 LOVE IT!
This ball is the one and only outdoor volleyball to get. Everyone at the tournaments has it due to how well it holds up, the feel of it and it's weight. There is no other option...this is the best outdoor volleyball on the market.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Just For Fun Player Great Ball! Worth the price!
Love it for recreational games! Very sturdy and well made. Holds air perfectly. Not as much of a sting as some balls, but not cheap and soft either.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Spkier Vicky Dont Buy, wont last Long, bad bladder
I've brought this for an outdoor tournament 2 months, we just played 4 games, that's it. we can buy 3 Replica ball for the same cost. Ball doesn't retain air, its losing air very quickly and looks like weak bladder. i don't know, how to get it replaced. Money put on this costly ball is of waste. I recommend, don't even think of if its outdoor play.
