    Try and get an Adidas Tango or an Uhlsport.

    Best balls ever made.

    From my experience the total 90 ones are crap, most the ones I've played with have been rediculously light and bouncy.

    Maybe the adidas tango one of the uhlsport if that's the case..

    The tango said "Natural latex bladder for increased softness" which put me off, as will this be more prone to damage?

    Which uhlsport should I go for?

    Can't find any uhlsport ball retailers on the net.


    Off the uhlsport site the sphere sounds promising..
    "Abrasion resistant pearlised PU material with 3D effect , 4-fold PES/CO backing, newly developed ACS-bladder with high air-retention and excellent rebound"

    Edit; Found it for £15. Reckon I should hit it?

    Ok.. I'll have a think..

    Not sure whether the uhlsport sphere or that tiempo legend.

    Is the legend thing pretty good on harder ground (I've worn the flatter part of my garden (large but loads of hills) down to the earth and there's a few brambles round the edges..

    I reckon it might be a safer bet to get the uhlsport as it says its a hard ground ball with good endurance.

    Nike looks better though :p

    I had the legend ball it was great and withstood everything it just got lost though when some idiot booted it in a garden.

    I've got the 2006 addidas world cup replica football, 10 quid and it's one of the best balls I've ever played with and looks good too.

    Mines dying :p

    Its just a pretty normal ball tbh. Nothing special about it, just printed differently.
    I reckon I'll probably just get the uhlsport for durability

    Call me a cheap skate, but I got an Umbro football for £2.00 from Sports World in town.

    I think I will get a good one when the hot weather finally comes.

    I have two.. one burst when I half volleyed it at a goal (On contact with my foot *beast*) and the other just let air out slowly.

    Really bad.
