Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ball 100% the best ball out there. The tack, laces, and over-all fit in my hand are perfect. One note: this ball gets brittle in sub-zero temps and is prone to popping if you drop it.As for the people who don't like this ball, it's just not the right fit for you. If you can't grip it, your hands aren't big enough (you can also buy the brush which takes care of initial slickness), if it hurts to catch, you aren't catching it correctly, and if it bleeds on you, get over it.There's no problem with being a better fit for the composite and cushioned ball, just understand what you're getting into if you think you want this ball. If you like the composite balls, stick with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just a great ball! I myself love this ball, use it all the time. As a new ball it is hard as people catching it would saybut thats new leather for ya, hold its shape well, and hold air just fine even when i travel up an down mountains. Yes it will bleed red as a new ball but a quick warm water dip let it dry and adding shoe polish (brownish is what I use) and that problem goes away long with the tuff leather feel. I enjoy it but i have big strong hands and dont need the hold the laces to put a spin on the ball...the laces are smaller on this ball then any other ball I have ever seen or used if you need laces to get ur spin, power, and accury you might want to try a Wilson's TDS 1205 ball. This ball is for the big boys.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Ball, careful though... This a great ball. Best you can buy. I'm very happy with my purchase. I say careful because this ball is NOT good for signatures with normal sharpie markers. The coating on the ball makes it almost impossible for normal sharpies to leave a mark on it. If you are buying this ball for signatures either buy different ball or MAKE SURE you buy the "paint" markers made by sharpie not the permanent markers we are all used to. I made the mistake and I can barely see the sigs I got on my ball.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Do your research first Purchased this ball earlier this year, as well as the Wilson Game Ball Prep Kit. If you're going to get this ball, the prep kit is a must. At first I was a bit disappointed but once I used the prep kit, it made the ball exactly what I was expecting it to be. Buying a genuine leather ball requires a little knowledge before hand, or patience to learn. They will not feel great out of the box. They have to cover the leather with a powdery substance that protects the material during shipping. The prep kit helps remove that pinkish powder. The more you use this ball, the softer and better it will feel. It is a hard ball, and sometimes they have inflation issues. It honestly is hit or miss on whether a ball retains air as well as another of the same model. Mine has been great, but I saw one on the shelves that was deflated in the box. Of course, it also looked heavily used so it might have been a return. You're all used to buying cheap composite balls. I know, because that's how I was. This one is better.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The ball was defective I am a free agent kicker who purchases new footballs approximately once every few weeks. Within one kicking session with this new ball (approximately 25-30 field goal attempts) the are behind the laces of the football began to leak air. I do not like to leave negative reviews, but this has happened to me 3 separate times now with footballs, and only with footballs that I have purchased from Dick's. I will no longer buy any NFL "official footballs" from this chain, as they are clearly not reliable in comparison to purchasing NFL footballs from other retailers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made in USA Support an Ohio factory and show your NFL spirit by owning the only ball used by the National Football League. This is the real thing. Real leather, not composite. The balance is perfect. The price point is correct.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this ball! Once you play with The Duke you will never throw another ball! But do yourself a favor and spend the extra 20 bucks on the Wilson game ball prep kit. It is a MUST it makes this wonderful ball even better.
