A lot of people hate using this vball b/c they are not used to it and find it very difficult to play with it. However, once you adapt and learn how to play with it, it really is a better vball compared to the traditional vball or the Molten 5000. If you are having a lot trouble with it, I'd recommend playing with the Molten 5000 (a lot easier to pick up and play) for a bit and then retrying the MVA200. If you are willing to put the time and effort, you will enjoy the MVA200.
I also play with a Molten 5000 and much prefer the Mikasa. The Molten feels balloony in comparison, and doesn't give you that satisfying "thud" when you smack it good.
I also play a Tachi SV5W which is a nice all-around ball but I definitely prefer the 8-panel composite design over the 18-panel leather cover of the Tachi.
In any case, this ball is a lot to handle. It's slightly slippery when moist (sweat will do it), and makes it hard to grip the ball with your hand. This can make setting, passing, and even adding top spin a chore. Floating the ball is especially effective with this ball.
The skin does seem resistant to sweat, so playability will remain contant through long playing sessions - constantly slippery though.
On the other hand, if you over exaggerate your basic fundamentals, it will teach you good form for your basic skills.
It is not a popular ball to play with, but it does make a good warm up ball.
I recommend the Molten V5m5000 if you're looking for a new high tech ball, other wise, the older leather balls are much more playable and offer better feel.
