Ive bought two generations of this ball for three different soccer programs. Theyre awesome. They can feel a bit heavy in this newer version of the ball but again- totally within the margin of normal. Anyway, they hold their air, the touch is nice, and Ive never lost one to breakage.
Highschool soccer old version - I bought 80 for my 3 teams about 6 years ago. They still use the same balls and they seem to be in perfectly fine condition turf field.
Highschool new version- 50 for 2 teams 3 years ago and all look brand new natural grass field.
Youth ages 3-12 old version - 50 used by various ages continuously for the past 6 years. Some scraping but no real damage and no lost balls we played on a cement court for 4 years, a sport court the last 2 years, and the balls are regularly slammed into wood dash board they used to be kicked against stuco walls before we put the futsal court and walls up.
About me: played college, a little semipro soccer, and gave coaches for almost 10 years now
