By Eric Lee on March 21, 2009
I was initially concerned about buying this ball. I had read good things, but was unsure if I could like this ball as much as the Molten Pro Touch. I played with it the other day for the first time and immediately noticed how easy it was to pass, set, and hit. This is a hitters ball! The other thing you immediately notice is how easy this ball is to see and how well this ball floats and sets - no more bad sets! This ball is softer than the Pro Touch/Super Touch yet it plays just as hard. It feels like genuine leather not "plasticky" like I've read in some reviews. The group I generally play with is a diverse group of players and not a single person (from AA to near terrible) complained about this ball. If you are on the fence about this ball, take the plunge...you won't regret it.

First of all, the look of the ball is very cool. Construction looks decent, but will have to wait and see till I destroy the ball in a matter of time. The ball is very different from the other indoor balls such as Tachikara, Wilson and past Mikasa versions in that you'll first notice the feel of the ball. It doesn't have much of a cushion unlike the other brands/balls...this is an advantage for hitters who know how to smack the ball. Unlike some other complaints about the heavy weight, I personally like it. Again the added weight gives the ball its speed when you hit the ball properly. The dimple design is also an advantage for people who know how to serve a floater or jump floater...it gives the ball amazing movement. What I'm really surprised about is how EASY it is to controll the ball on sets, especially back sets and shoots...I believe due to the new seem and dimple design. Overall this is a great quality ball and I recommend it to anyone who wants to improve their game.

I ended up really liking this vball. It's definitely not a beginner's or intermediate's vball to use. It takes time to get used to it and has a higher learning curve. You have to adjust a lot of your skills with the MVA200, especially passing. I shanked my passes a lot when I first played with it. I had to really adjust my passing skills with the MVA200. It is not as forgiving as the other vballs. It is great for setters (grips easy), hitters and especially float servers. This vball floats like crazy if you hit the sweet spot. Also for float serves, it has a tendency to just drop in front of you.

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 personally love this ball, but I have to take one star off because nobody wants to play with it. Beginners and especially girls complain it's too hard, even though I have it inflated to slightly below regulation. They also complain it feels "small" even though it's official size. I love the panel design, the cover texture and feel, and the color scheme. I find it very easy to track in the air against a background of bright fluorescent lights which makes my hitting more consistent. The slightly denser feel of this ball compared to the crappy 18 panel Wilson and Baden balls at my gym makes it easier for me to place my sets, though hitting requires a bit more precision on the player's part. This is a player's ball, and if you got game, you'll probably enjoy it. If you're a beginner or complain when your forearms get red, then stick to your open gym's stock marshmallows.

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.

Personally really like the visibility of the ball, never gets lost in the light. Nice solid, reassuring thud when you hit with it. People at my open gym (people of all skill levels) generally make me switch for a softer ball, so we hardly get to play with this one. While I enjoy playing with it, this ended up being a very expensive practice ball.

Great all around indoor ball. The grip allows me to set the ball fairly descent; additionally I can get a really good standing floater serve in. The only thing that concerns me is that I do have to check the PSI before every use. It does seem to require some air more often than not; but then again this is my first ball I've ever purchased so I don't know if all balls require that or not. Either way, this is my go to ball.

Caveat, this ball feels a little more "dead" than the typical example of this model.

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.
