Official NFLŽ game football
Exclusive WILSONŽ leather with deeper pattern and firmer texture
The color tone of the football is a little bit different than what I see on TV But its still Great and definitely feels like an official leather ball, I bought it to toss around and play with friends on sunday mornings, Feels great and if you can spiral it it'll go far for a hail mary Touchdown!!
As far as the quality of this ball is amazing ! It feels great in the hand the leather is smooth & what else can I say it's a Authintic NFL football.... With that being said I really don't play with it , took it to the Leivs stadium Wednesday August 5 to the 49ers Football camp . But when I enter the stadium thru said no balls allowed in? I was very upset that I couldn't bring the ball in I was going to try to get it sign by some players if I had a opportunity . But it doesn't make sense , you wouldn't bring balls in but they sold them in the stadium . Also I saw a lot of kids that had their official NFL ball thru got in some how . So now I'm stuck with a new ball that has no autographs , the reason why they said no balls allowed was because they said Fans have thrown footballs at the players Im the past . But I think it was stupid that they won't let you bring in a ball , but you can buy a ball there ! Other then that I'm going to keep my ball until I have another opportunity to try to get some autographs again .
This is a fantastic ball, really nothing to complain about. It doesn't actually wear out too fast if used on fields only, but it shouldn't be expected to have the life of a less expensive synthetic ball because of its genuine leather cover. Excellent ball for competition! If you plan on using it for all-around use (including possibility of hitting asphalt or concrete), probably not a wise choice due to price.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Purchased 6 balls for team in Brazil in December 2011. 1 went flat in January, would not hold air again. Should not happen for an expensive ball like this. Called Wilson, said they replace ball within 1 year, but have to send to them. Will not ship back to Brazil though they have representatives here. Ball is ONLY for grass and game situations, scuffs otherwise. Too expensive to practice with, wearing it out. Dye does bleed off when cleaning. Purchase brush to clean, and hand pump and air gauge to measure proper inflation (11-13 lbs). Do not used compressed air! Other balls seem fine at this point. Otherwise, nothing better than the original to use.
the balls paint comes off when water touches it and all your hands get red. also some of the guys i was playing with said the ball had to much air in it. i like the ball only to throw because the grip is good to throw. but other then that don't buy this ball cause the paint on the leather comes off.
