Bought as a replacement for a ball which needed blown up every ten minutes. What can I say? Anything would have been better than that. So far - after regular use every Thursday for the last 7 weeks, its still in perfect condition. Hopefully will see use for a good many Thursdays into the future!!

The ball itself is great in play - easy to control, no high bounces BUT this is the second one we have used. The first one lasted 3 weeks i.e. 3 x 1 hour indoor 5 a side sessions each Wednesday before the panels started peeling. Thankfully, Amazon did an immediate replace and on this one we're up to 4 sessions and it's still OK!! Fyi, we've used the traditional "furry" Mitre Cyclone style balls for the last 12 years but the last 2 of those lasted just 6 months each as opposed to the 1 year they used to last - plus its price went right up hence the change.
Update - June 4th 2015
I can't remember when the above was written but it was probably NovDec 2014. We've used the 2nd ball since then with a 5 week break over Christmas and various cancellations since then (Wednesday night is a popular night for setting up Thursday events at the Leisure Centre where we play!). The ball is now wrecked i.e. split and peeling panels and it also needs blowing up for each session - which it always has done. It certainly needs replacing but we're disappointed with the length of time it's lasted even though, as mentioned initially, in play it's excellent. Maybe the V7 will be an improvement
