I was looking to buy this NIKE RELEASE Basketball, for some burn on my concrete half-court in my backyard.

  • It's Cheap
  • It's Nike, so must be pretty durable, or is it?
  • I've felt the seams, and they are pretty deep, which is really important when balls go bald because of constant use.
I'm also looking at this MOLTEN BG07 Outdoor one, with the synthetic shiny leather

  • They are roughly the same price
  • Seams are shallow
  • Don't know if the shiny material will outlast regular good ol' synthetic leather, but i like this one because of the number of seams and these are pretty popular here in the Philippines.
Does anyone have these balls
so they can share their experiencewith them?

Does anyone have any other recommendations?

Thanks Niketalk!

the nike 10000 OUTDOOR / INDOOR ball. there's a reason why it labels outdoor before indoor. its a great basketball, just wipe it down before u play and itspretty damn good for the rest of the day.

Wilson basketballs are great. Only ball I can think that's better than a Wilson Solution is a TF-1000 ZK Pro.

It is. Very very poor quality. Anything made by Nike thats not their top of the line, can be beaten by a competitor at that price range.
Some of their balls would come back to my store with panels peeling off


Wilson > all.

Wait, i though the consensus was Spalding > All, first time i ever heard someone recommend Wilson other than footballs.

So i should make a decision here SPALDING NEVER FLAT OUTDOOR or WILSON SOLUTION?

Solutions aren't meant for outdoor use. I play with a Wilson Reaction, and I love it.

I can't stand Never Flats. It feels and sounds like there's a damn dodgeball on the inside.

To be honest, I've never found an outdoor ball that doesn't eventually wear down, so I always go cheap like a Baiden or something and just toss it atthe end of the summer.

No.

a quality indoor ball will get shredded on the blacktop.
