Not the best quality

My son is not overly impressed with this ball as it is wearing out creating less grip. He has only had it for a few weeks. Disappointing.

Product review

The ball suffered a deformation in the initial week and the grip coating on the ball has started to peel, and this has occurred with an average use of 2-3 hours of play everyday. The ball is heavier than usual and doesn't bounce to the optimum level, even with maximum air capacity.

For a good bounce, how much should you inflate your basketball?

A basketball that is overinflated or underinflated will deliver a sub-par playing experience. The recommended pressure is clearly marked on the ball by the manufacturer. Ideally, you should use a pump with a pressure gauge for a more precise inflation. At Tarmak, we recommend a pressure of 0.62 bars. Enjoy your game!

What ball size to choose?

The ball size depends on the player's age and gender. Size 1: From ages 2 and up Size 3 to size 5: Girls or boys ages 4 to 6 / under 7 age group (depending on levels and clubs) Size 5: Boys and girls ages 7 to 10 / Under 9 and under 11 age groups Size 6: Boys ages 11 and 12 / Under 13 age group Size 6: Girls - Women of all ages over 11 Size 7: Boys ages 13 and up, and men.

What ball should you use?

If you want a very durable ball, go for a rubber ball. If you're looking for a ball with a good ball feel, choose a leather or synthetic ball.

What height basket should you choose?

The official height of a basketball basket is 10 ft. (rim height). If you want a basketball basket for your child, you need something that will grow with them. For younger kids there isn't an official height so you can choose whatever suits them best. Up to the age of 10, club baskets are set at 8'6". After the age of 10, both girls and boys play with 10' baskets.
