I thought this football (if good) would get 4 stars because it has black laces. After receiving it and using it, I think the black laces look better on this ball because of it's shade/color. It's extremely nice looking, and after getting used to it with about 100 passes throwing an even spiral became easier. It's flight characteristics are excellent. It flies at a consistent rate of speed (depending on your throw of course) and with a very good toss you'll imagine NFL films highlights of Joe Montana spiraling touchdowns to Jerry Rice...
Would I prefer a ball with white laces that looks more like "The Duke", like the Wilson NFL Replica composite version? In terms of aesthetics, yes probably, but not for double the cost. This ball looks great, feels great to catch, easy to grip, kicks well, it is certainly game-worthy. If this ball is used on asphalt/pavement surfaces frequently, it will take a beating. I think it will be durable, but much happier and will live longer if only used on grass.
I prefer and recommend Wilson footballs. For footballs, they are king. I do not recommend composite Nike Footballs. I've owned and used several Nike footballs, leather and composite. Their basketballs can be nice, but their footballs are not. Like most Nike products, it looks nice, it says something like "spiral tech" to make you think it will make you look great, but they don't seem to be crafted with the same Wilson feel and precision. I have not found any Nike composite football that is game-worthy.Read more ›
After an entire summer of use, the ball is in great condition considering the abuse. Very few scuff marks besides the normal ones from scraping against concrete, trees, and grass. Stitching is completely unbroken, and the corners (I don't know what you call the ends) have tiny bits of impact wear. There is one ding about 1/2 cm from hitting the edge of a metal pipe. The dimples are slightly worn in a few areas and show some discoloration which I assume is from the concrete. The laces are in perfect shape. Gold letter outlines show normal wear and scratches. Even the barcode is intact. and I've only had to refill it once since May. (It's September now)
It's even been used for diving catches in the pool and still feels tacky after four months of use. It can use a little bit of air but still throwable. Based off of the usage from this past summer, I don't see myself buying another football for a few years. That of course is assuming it won't be punctured.
If your football is in perfect shape after one season of use, you're not using it enough...
I've only had this ball a week, but very happy with it. (and I have about 6 footballs).
