My 7th grade students loved playing GaGa with this ball. It was durable and didn't hurt when it hit them.

Our local dodgeball league uses these and they last 1 season, that being said they are played with hard for 4 hours a night 4 days a week.

I really don't think you can expect much more out of them if they maker them any more durable they won't stick in your hand as well.

Unlike some other 4-square/kickball/dodge ball products... these are both flexible enough to be fun to use and are also holding up well. I'll buy more (for the church gym).

I ordered this ball for my second graders. Great for playing lots of game outside. I didn't care about color, so gray was fine.

I've used all kinds of dodgeballs, and this does feel better.

However, the standard red and blue, same size play balls using possibly another material is, I suspect, far superior for storage. I stored about 30 balls in an outdoor shed. Unable to determine whether the sun got to the Mikasas and not as much to the others, but 80% of my Mikasas deteriorated over a period of about 18 months. Large and small holes developed, entire cracks, over expansion increased size of ball, dirtied by some kind of organic rot too. Nearly none of the standard red, blue balls deteriorated much.

As mentioned, I am unable to determine accurately whether the sun managed to get to the Mikasa and not the others. And both exterior material feel and look same. But all my Mikasas were damaged in long term storage and none of the others.

As for playing, the Mikasa look cooler. But in performance (throwing and being hit), there only a slight difference. I estimate 30% of the price of this ball is just to have "Official" stamp.

All the dodgeballs I've used damage rapidly-- world Needs superior dodgeballs :) So for short term use, Mikasa is simply slightly more expensive and looks cooler. For long term use requiring storage, these Mikasas failed miserably.

I bought this ball to use for kickball.

When it arrived, it seemed a bit soft for kickball, so after a couple of games, I inflated it a little beyond the maximum PSI. That was a bad idea - the ball became an inch larger, and is now shaped kind of like an egg. Surprisingly, though, the ball has not developed any leaks, and has not cracked. Despite the odd shape, I can still successfully use it for kickball games. In other words, this ball can take a lot (hence the 5 stars).

For kickball, I would probably recommend finding a ball designed for that purpose. If you want to use this ball, it'll work, but will be a little soft.

DODGEBALL!!! Very bouncy but soft. Easy to grip because you can squish it with one hand a little to get that nice grip for throwing. Not too painful but painful enough to know you're hit and must get out. And maybe get revenge later. Came inflated and round. Did not need to do anything else. Still inflated actually. Will buy more soon.

Bought this for my niece for christmas (we wrapped it like a giant piece of candy in wrapping paper) so she could play basketball with the bigger boys and could also use it for other games. She totally loved it, it was just big enough to feel big for her but not so big she couldn't handle it at the age of nearly 2 at the time of writing this. Pretty sturdy so far, I'll report back with an update if something goes awry.
