    is an ideal choice for competitive players with a durable rubber skin

    What do you recommend for players who don't have skin made out of rubber, eg. humans?

      Vote down? Obviously someone here has rubber skin and was offended. Sorry my rubber friend.

    Not great - tends to lose air, inconsistent bounce and just a weird feel overall. I'd go Moltens or the WIlson NBL balls.

      Doesn't feel great, I agree

      Molten BG3200 is slippery and wouldnt recommend that one.

    •  

      Which Moltens do you recommend?

      • +1 vote

        Molten GM range is good. I have GM7 and it has a good feel like all the Molten models. They sometimes have specials on their online store.

        FIBA one, i think that's the BG5000.
        the rest are garbage.

    •  

      Tested one out in store and felt okay, it is a rubber ball though and I preferred the feel of the Wilson NBL replica which is composite leather. Also, the channeling was better on the Wilson. They were on sale for the same price.

    How is this comparing to the NBA Grip Control from Kmart?

    •  

      That looks more like a money ball from the all star weekend lol

    •  

      I personally prefer the triple double but that's cause I've been using them since I was a kid.

      Make sure you get the correct size tho:
      Size 7 for Men (and boys 14 years old and over)
      Size 6 for Women (and boys under 14 years old)
      Size 5 for younger kids (like under 10's)

    I get these for school PE. Great for the price, comparable balls likely to cost twice as much. Be sure to sign up as a rebel sport member, It'll give your local group 5% rebate ( pinnacle Cricket club if you don't like any of your local options 😛 )

    •  

      Could you explain more on that rebate? Is it the rebel store membership that gives you a 5% discount?

      • +1 vote

        Rebel sports have a community kickback. As a rebel member you are entitled to nominate an affiliated club/school that has signed up to be an affiliate. Those affiliates receive a 5% "kickback" on sales their members purchase. Not a discount, a rebate for affiliated clubs. Can make a big difference on small clubs like ours

      Already a member but never heard of this before, how do I do it? is it on the site somewhere?

    This product is disdainfully named the finger smasher by me and my mates , would not recommend. Get a wilson instead

    Crap quality ball,
    Couple months into it and it developed a lump and wouldnt bounce straight.

    •  

      Sounds faulty did you take it back or check out warranty

      •  

        Honestly didnt use it after a couple months and only when i went to use it later on is when i found out it had a lump…
        So i didnt end up trying to return it because of lockdowns. So im not sure if its been too long now and havnt researched it yet.

        •  

          Yeah no worries, it's probably worth the effort if you are going past a rebel sometime, should get more life out of it than that.cheers

      Strictly rubber balls for concrete

  •  

    ball is okay..does have a weird bounce and pleather feel lol but once played a phew times and worn in the grip and bounce does feel better not bad for $35 but for $60 i recommend the SPALDING TF GRIND great rubber padded feeling and nice bounce and shoots great

  •  

    Anyone have an opinion on what to get for some young boys under 10 for outdoor use?

    All size 5

    Wilson Jet Pro Basketball $29 at rebel or something like a Molten GR7X for $35.

    100% outdoor use.

      This ball will do.

      8-9yo should be playing with a size 6 ball (my son's under 10 league plays with a size 6)

      •  

        Ended up getting the Wilson Jet Pro from Rebel. Mostly because of the synthetic leather and positive reviews.

        Boys are 5 and 7 so a size 5 might suit them better.

        • +1 vote

          5 & 7, yes, size 5 is the correct size.

            @JimB: Thanks for your help JimB.

            Picked it up today, very happy with it.

  •  

    Make sure you ask the staff to inflate it in the store and test it.

    I ordered 2 size 7s. Both didn't bounce upright from new. I got a refund for them and bought a higher quality ball.

    I did pick up another one in a size 6 for my son to play outdoor.. It was ok. He lost it though, so I picked up another one for him (but wrote his name on the ball this time).

    They go on sale regularly, not worth $70 but very good at $35.

    • +1 vote

      Agree, for $35 it's great. Actually best to take advantage of cashback (Rebel often have 15-25% off shopback) so I paid $30.

      Got a floor pump at home so just used that and seems fine (8-10 psi). A lot of low quality generic/rubber balls aren't much less.

  •  

    This ball is also good for the price- https://au.wilson.com/products/nbl-replica-basketball?varian...

    Got it for like $15 on the sale (thanks OzBargain).. I'd say it's on par or better than the Spalding NBA Triple Double Basketball.

    Purchased about 5 basketballs in the past year ranging from $15 to $110.

      I think the triple double is good enough here for a go down at the outdoor court once a week.
