The ball itself is fine once you get it inflated, but the pump that comes with it is a cheap piece of junk. If you're willing to spend a good 2 hours pumping, you'll get it inflated eventually. There's no valve of any kind in the actual ball, just a hole, so you have to be ready to get the plug in as soon as you remove the pump nozzle, and no matter how fast you'll still lose a bunch of air. As others mentioned, the listing says the max capacity is 500 lbs, but the box says 250 lbs. The box also says it comes with a tool to pull the plug back out of the ball, but it doesn't. Getting the plug back out the ball to inflate further is a chore, and you'll end up with sore fingers and destroyed fingernails. The ball did inflate to the full 65 cm, eventually.
