PowerBolt Brick of 11" Fastpitch Softballs - 1 Dozen
Every ball deformed after a few hits...
Bought these balls for a company outing, to play a recreational game. Each of the balls was deformed after only a few hits, in warm-ups. Not a single one could be used in a game. Could even be dangerous, as the unpredictable ball flight was not a good situation for casual, inexperienced players.

Basic softballs - good for practice
Good balls for practice. Not high end but also good for the price.

Used once for batting practice and they all became deformed. Don't buy, waste of money.

Not very good
If you want something that looks like a softball this will do the trick. If you want something that acts like a softball, don't buy these. Warped easy and very soft/low compression. After one practice we only use them for hitting into the net.

Good ball for the money
I have daughter that plays 8u travel ball and rec. We bought a block of these about eight months ago and have only tossed two of them. Again, these are young girls, but compared to more expensive balls they did the trick. all the covers and seams are in still in great shape.

Not good quality
After the first time playing with the balls ALL the balls were deformed just by simply having a batting practice!

Not worth the money ! Buy a better ball
The durability of the balls are bad. One hit the cork inside the ball cracked and deformed. They were only good for 1 pracitice of a coed team. shouldnt be on the shelf for sell.

I bought a dozen of these softballs to mix in with the ones my buddy has and within one hour of batting practice every last one was deformed. i am very disappointed and will never buy this brand again.

Disappointed with its Durability
I purchased 3 dozen of the Dicks green softballs to use for practice hitting off the tee and soft-toss. After two weeks of heavy usage, 3 times a week for about 1.5 hours per practice, many of the softballs are slightly deformed in shape with flat spots, and many have lost their hardness and become too soft for hitting. I recommend spending more money on a premium softball that will last longer.
