Customer Reviews for Molten BG5000 FIBA Official Basketball
4 out of 5 Excellent quality. Break it in.
Newitts Verified Purchase (13 Dec 2021)
I really like the quality of this ball. You can tell it’s well made. The weight and size and the feel of the grooves are spot on. Since it is real leather it is smoother than other synthetic balls so it dosnt feel super sticky to start with so you will have to break it in for a while .
