The ball panels are even. The bladder needle valve is very slightly recessed. The ball has a pressure guide stamped on it which reads, "Pressure at 0.500 to 0.600 bars". That converts to 7.25 psi (gauge) to 8.70 psi (gauge) - I don't think you can get a reading that accurate on most cheap gauges. As a side note, whenever you read psig, that means lbs per square inch gauge.
I called Molten USA in Reno about the ball specs and the following is their response - my notes are in parentheses:
Weight: 557 - 650 gm - (use a digital kitchen scale to weigh ball)
Diameter 749 - 780 mm (converts to 29.5 inches to 30.7 inches)
My Molten ball measured:
Diameter: 29 3/8" (29.375") while the Baden ball measured 30.5 inches
Weight: 593 grams while the Baden measured 606 grams
I guess I could add a bit more air to get the diameter up to exactly 29.5 inches which would add some weight. But I like it as it is. The ball handles very nicely on a blacktop court and felt good shooting it. For me it's the right feel.
