Bought these footballs for use in 5-a-side. Despite the material lasting quite well and not scuffing over time, unfortunately both balls 'egged' the first night of use (60 mins) during outdoor 5-a-side.

Will be choosing different balls again next time.

Having tried the Mitre Malmo (sent by mistake, since replaced) I can confirm that this ball is superior and in my opinion worth the extra money. It bounces well and is not hard to kick. The quality of the leather and stitching is apparent.

These are simply poor quality balls, old fashioned in function and certainly not match quality. I run a couple of junior football teams and we have tried a number of different types of balls over time in both matches and training sessions. I have to say that training quality balls from other manufacturers are more suited to match situations (and training) than these ones.

Reasons? They are hard skinned and need to be pumped up far too much to retain any bounce or shape. There is no "give" in them once you have done this, meaning they are difficult to get a decent contact on with a boot or trainer and not easy to control and strike well, particularly for kids just trying to develop their technique. In cold weather conditions you might as well be kicking a cricket ball, the kids hate them and their general quality of the play is poor. As for building up the confidence to head a ball - forget it! They remind me of the horrific things I had to kick around in school games in the 1970s, although I'm sure the dusty grey suits at the FA would love that.

So anyway, don't buy these - go for Adidas or Nike replica balls which are actually cheaper in the £12-14 range. They are more durable, but more importantly, they actually let youngsters enjoy and develop their skills. Failing that a 99p "striker" from the local paper shop would be more fun at least.

Great ball. If you're looking for a decent ball but not looking to break the bank this is an excellent choice. We only play a casual 6 a side game but it's a very good ball, keeps it's shape, it's a good weight, and when you ping it over to top bin, it stays hit! Excellent quality at a good price point. It really is worth spending the extra few quid instead of getting a lower quality ball, compared to the Tactic or some of the Precision balls. It's not the best ball I've ever used but unless you're very serious about playing and are prepared to spend the cash this really is an excellent ball.

I guess if you're looking at this ball then you know how good the Ultimatch ball is. Perfect training ball.

When buying online you buy in faith that the product you are sent has been 'quality tested' -my ball came with a quite large 'egg' in it, awaiting a replacement ball to come in the post as we speak.
I bought it whilst on offer, next time it'll be from a shop where I can see the ball first, less hassle that way.

The ball was a good quality despite being the wrong shape.

Terrible football. It morphs into a rugby ball when you kick it. I would only recommend for kids under 8.
