Here’s just one of the basketball reviews on Amazon:
I teach PE at an urban middle school where the kids play basketball on rough blacktop all day, and before I found this ball, I never found a ball that lasted longer than two weeks. But these basketballs appear to be indestructible, and the kids love them. They look undeniably cool, and they are tough and easy to play with, plus the cover retains its grip. (Sean Messenger)
