Thick, heavy, good quality ball - unlike Trenas
on 8 July 2014
Purchased a replacement for a returned Trenas 55cm Pink ball (due to poor quality & colour).
This Reebok Elements 65cm is a superior quality ball - it was v. heavy in comparison to the Trenas. It was thick to touch, and the same when inflated. I inflated until it had form, but not stretched - this was appox. a 55cm size. When sitting on it, it would be fine left at a 55cm-size, or you could inflate to stretch it after leaving it for a day to settle the fibres. I think anyone thinking of a ball of either 55cm or 65cm would be fine with this - maybe if you were at the taller end of the 65cm range, you may need a 75cm one. This has a good ball shape, whereas the Trenas was short and wide.
Pump is like a syringe. Problem: it does not fit inside ball, so I had to hold it on whilst inflating. It was easier to blow into myself until 3/4 formed shape, then use the given hand-pump. The Trenas has a better pump, fitting inside the hole.
I plan to buy another of these for someone else. After a poor experience with the Trenas, I won't be shopping around for other models, as this Reebok is a good-quality ball and I am, so far, happy with it.
