Rated 1 out of 5 by loses air ball is nice and light, perfect size and weight for my 8 & 10 yr old. but ball needs to inflated every few days. July 23, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by D.O.A. DEAD ON ARRIVAL!! My grandson wanted this ball specifically. His last name is "SPALDING" I placed an order on line and went to pick it up the same day. Gentleman that helped me at the store was very polite, friendly and prompt. He left and returned with my order but then said he was going to pump up the ball. Return after a couple minutes. A week later I went to wrap this for a Christmas and the ball was FLAT. Returned the ball to the store and received an apology and refund. January 11, 2016
