To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Not bad, not a perfect Gilbert but an okay training ball. The red did scuff off on surfaces and the ball printing not perfect. I've played with Gilbert's balls for decades and very nice balls they are too.
I bought this for my 5 year old. He can handle this size of ball well. No problems in catching or passing (he even gives it a bit of spin). So for him its ideal. One thing to note though, the colour (red in my case) does seem to wear quickly which I was surprised at! Hence only 4 stars.
My son has used this ball for handling and kicking practice for the last six weeks. It was great at first. It's had a lot of use, fair enough, but conditions have been dry and I would expect the ball to last. However, the grip has already gone completely. Not impressed.
Unfortunately this is the second time I have ordered this ball as it was a gift for our grandson at Christmas. The first one had to be returned as it was losing air when pumped up around the end where stitched. The second is faulty in exactly the same place so has to be returned also. Very dissapointed.
