I own another Duraball Pro (legitimate). The two are not in any way comparable. The packaging contents were different. The quality isn’t even close. Even the labeling on the ball is different. Unfortunately I threw out the box and packaging.
I purchased mine as a chain replacement at work, and I'm a big guy. The 65cm size is just about the perfect height for my desk, and the ball is very firm when inflated properly. Several others at my office have bought other balls, and they tend to "mush" much more than the Duraball, even when fully inflated.
The ball does not include a pump, and it does require a stretching period when first inflated, but that's because the material from which it's made is so much more thick than that of most balls. It feels very solid, and after having used it as a chair for a month, I've do doubt that it's going to last for many years.
So, is it worth it? If you're going to use this for trainer/professional level fitness (instability for bench press, etc.) or want something that's going to last a long, long time, then yes. However, if you need something for more casual use (sit-ups, stretching, etc.) then it's probably not worth the extra cost.
I'm very happy I bought it, but that's because I use its unique abilities.
Make sure that you inflate it per the instructions. It is a stiff material and it takes time for it to stretch out. If you go directly to the use size, it will become oversized. It took about five days for the wrinkles from being deflated and packed to go away. The plastic smell was strong enough that it was banished to the garage for two weeks before it could come into the house full time.
I have had it a month and it hasn't deflated from the original size. I found that the arm of a dining chair was exactly the right height. The ruler is held flat against the underside of the arm and the ball is rolled under the ruler under to check the size. Quick and easy!
I was concerned about the stiffness of the material but found that it compresses the same amount as other balls. There is a good contact patch. The surface finish also makes for good contact.
Because it is stiff, it does go out of round if you put weight on it. Tomorrow, it will be back to round. I use the ball on its equator and rotate it just for good measure.
The DuraBall Pro Plus is not bouncy like all my previous balls. You couldn't use this ball as a handle-less hoppy ball or dribble it. It is much slower to respond to input and takes more effort to make it move. This makes it more stable. It is pitched as an experienced user's ball but it seems to me that the stability would benefit beginners even more.
If it is your first ball, be aware that it does not come with a pump.
DuraBall is manufactured by AOK Health of Australia. I found that the DuraBall.com website was the most complete website for exercise balls that I found. My sense is that they are serious about exercise balls.
The information regarding maximum weights, testing, replacing, failure rate, maximum weights, etc. sold me on the DuraBall Pro Plus. I did have a concern over the DuraBall Pro Plus being characterized as being "firmer" actually meaning "harder". It turned out not to be the case.
If you own or are thinking of buying a stability ball, check out my guide "Be better informed about Exercise Balls". It has additional information gleaned from additional manufacturers' web sites.
The most direct way I found to navigate to "So you'd like to..." Guides is to run a product search. Select any one of the "Listmania!" offerings on the left. A "More So You'd Like to..." box with a search box will be located on the lower right of the page. Put "Be better informed about Exercise Balls" in the search box, with or without quotes.
This ball is going back...a true bummer because all the cheap balls feel unsafe to use for the exercises I need.
I also purchased a Theragear 65cm ball and that turned out to be awful as well; lopsided and way smaller than advertised even after a second inflation. If the second Duraball I receive doesn't have a plug recess, then I am truly SOL on getting a nice swiss ball.
I had no trouble inflating it with my existing bosu hand pump so I just returned the pump I'd bought (advertised by Amazon as an extra recommended accessory) for credit.
