Bought this for my 10 year old who uses it to play 4 square at school. You can feel that it is a little heavier than a similar ball you would pick up at walmart, target or toys r us. We've had those before and they last a few months before having a slow leak or deforming. We've been careful not to overinflate the ball so it has not been deform tested, but it's nice and round with plenty of air to give it a good bounce. My daughter notes that she likes that ball has a lot of grip. Also that the ball has a nice simple graphic as opposed to some of the large splash images on most balls. Plus the fact that you can get this ball in a number of colors.
