I wanted to get the Pro version with the gray base because that is the same one I use in the gym with my personal trainer. The underside of the base Pro version is made to be stood on for balance training when flipped over, which is also great for strength training with weights. When I received my Bosu ball from Amazon, the box had a BASIC stamp on it which seemed normal because Amazon has the product title as "Bosu Pro Basic". When I opened the box, I immediately saw the Bosu ball inside had a black base. Once I took it out and flipped it over, I saw the underside platform had small, rubberized feet on the underside. (The Pro version does not) Stamped on the underside was this message "PLATFORM NOT SUITABLE FOR STANDING - DO NOT STAND ON PLATFORM" So this was clearly the wrong Bosu. I had received the HOME Basic version. I emailed Amazon, and they overnighted a replacement Bosu to me (Best customer service in retail, no joke) and when I got the box, boom, on the outside was stamped once again: BASIC. So I knew even before opening that it was again the Home Basic version, not the Pro. Opened the box and again saw a black base inside.
If you go to Bosu's website, they list the Pro version as having a gray base, no other colors are listed as being Pro.
I've emailed Amazon and let them know of the error, but in the meantime I'm going to order directly from Fitness Quest to make sure I get the Pro version. Buyer beware!
I paid a premium for the product mainly because of the feet and think they would help in getting fingers under the BOSU for lifting and turning. Returning this is a bigger hassle and expense to me, so I'm going to keep it. I do quite a bit of business with Amazon.com and have been very satisfied with both service and product., this is very much an exception. I will post an addendum to this review with the name of the supplier.
Update: The name of the poor service supplier is Fitness Warehouse FWIW.
Excellent product offering challenging exercise options.
The pump though to me is something like you buy is a dollar store, although I might be insulting the dollar stores by saying that. If you already have a pump that has a general nozzle that can be pushed into a hole such as for an inflatable air mattress, then save the additional money and look up online some of the exercises you can do with this thing.
The pump is made of VERY flimsy plastic that took me about 5 minutes to pump up this thing with. Well, a little longer because the hose kept falling off the pump so I had to stop a few time to put it back on, until I finally just held the hose where it slides onto the pump. The hose also had a crack in it (once again REALLY flimsy and cheap plastic) so I had to tape that up. I have a nice electric pump for filling air beds and it would have filled this up in probably 20 to 30 seconds, so I feel stupid for thinking I needed to pay the extra money.
