This is a good cheap rubber ball, bought for Outdoor play. Perfect for what I needed. What was not so good though is the chaos in the ball section at the store. They actually had one ball on display and in a box, that had some guy's name written on it! Every time I buy a football or basketball it is the same thing- balls everywhere, disorganized, mislabeled and general confusion.
This is a good basketball for outdoor use. My son told me that the outdoor/indoor basketballs really don't stand up well when used outdoor (like on a concrete driveway), but that outdoor only basketballs (like this one) last much longer outdoors.
