1) It's hardcore beyond belief. I play on a court with trees to either side and don't have to worry about anything stabbing my ball to death (it's happened before). Barring some terrible SUV run-in, it's not going to die on me any time soon.
2) The material is quite grippy. Even when it's a bit moist out I don't have to worry about being any worse of a ball handler than I normally am.
Some not so amazing things about it:
1) Unless you're a lumberjack, this thing is going to hurt your fingers. Maybe I just shoot oddly, but it seems to have a sandpaper effect at times - not a good thing if you enjoy playing for a while.
2) It sounds REALLY WEIRD. I mean, realllllly weird. It reminds me a bit of those bouncy kickballs from grade school, except on steroids. Every single person I've played with has done a double-take, so don't buy if you like playing with negative Nellies.
Overall, good ball. Don't anticipate any long-term issues.
Overall a good outdoor basketball to use and abuse.
I play streetball every weekend. Whenever I play, my ball is the one that ends up being used. The other ball is never as good as this one. It just feels right. If I walk around the court, I see the same thing going on - guys choosing Never Flats over the other ones. I've had it for over 15 months and haven't had to inflate it yet!
Again, not a bad ball by any means, and worth it if it will be left outside to test the elements, but if you're looking for a more standard basketball, go with an indoor/outdoor ball from Spalding.

It's meh for outdoor play. It completely lost grip after just a month or so of outdoor play. The Spalding 71024 NBA Street Phantom is the way to go.Published 1 month ago by yaqub0r
Changed colors within a year. Now all the leather is peeling and the color is absolutely gone. Looks like a 10 year old ball now.Published 1 month ago by Mr.Ike

Not sure how they do that, but this ball doesn't go flat.
Good quality and my son has been very happy with it.
My son has to pump this ball up every time he goes out to shoot ball. It's only been used since December and only on our driveway.Published 3 months ago by SDK
Went flat after a handful of uses. After ball went flat, broke the seal to try to pump air into it...air escapes immediately and ball goes flat.Published 3 months ago by Gurinder
It never flats out, but if you intentionally cause it to flat it will flat out.Published 3 months ago by Fred E Hennlich
