Mikasa indoor Olympic Games Ball
The new MVA200 changed the way we all look at volleyballs. The unique 8 panel design and aerodynamic dimpling offers better stability and ball control. Never has there been a more highly engineered ball with such worldwide acceptance. The MVA200 has become the ball of choice for all nations and the FIVB.

- Embossed and dimpled surface
- Exclusive soft micro-fiber cover
- Nylon would center
The Mikasa MVA200 Indoor Volleyball is tested and ready for high-quality performance in the Olympic Arena and was used in the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, China. Features include an eight-panel swirl design that allows for more contact area on the surface to improve passing and control and a unique dimpled microfiber material that creates turbulence and cuts down on resistance as the ball flies through the air. This lack of resistance allows the ball to fly through the air in a truer form so you can be creative with your serves and spikes.

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.
- Feels great. Good ball for hitters, at least for me I found it was easier to make full contact with this ball than with a Molten. Felt a bit easier to pass with this ball as well.
- Good for setting. Some people complain about this ball being harder to set with, but I've experienced the opposite. I feel like my setting has improved with this ball, and some people have actually noticed and went out of their way to let me know which is definitely a big confidence-booster as an intermediate player.
- Float serve. It's almost as if this ball was designed for float serves! With a good float serve I found it much more difficult to pass than a float serve with other balls. Obviously if you're really good at float serves using any ball can be pretty lethal, but this one I found to be much more difficult to pass when it comes to floaters. It just moves a lot more in the air than other balls, making it quite unpredictable and hard to track.
Overall, I highly recommend this ball. I take it with me to open gyms and people love using it just because everyone knows it's the official ball, even though there's a newer one out already. Definitely has a different feel, but different in a good way. Definitely enjoying this ball and looking forward to improving my skills with it.
Feels great in the hand, has a nice rebound. Does get a little slick when people start sweating, but that is part of the game, you'll learn to deal.
It will last you forever, as long as you don't abuse it (use it outside/around sharp objects/kick it)
Still a great option, even though there is a newer model.
I am not sure about the floats, I did not see any difference between Molten and this ball. I think this is more of a "hype."
