Made By Canterbury of New Zealand. This ball is an excellent practice or entry-level match ball. It has an all weather grip. The 3 ply bladder has significantly better air retention than traditional latex bladders. The unique valve in the seam counter balances the weight to ensure true flight.Balls should be inflated to 9 - 10.5 psi (pounds of air). This will give you the best performance and bounce. It is a common thing for balls to feel like they are losing air when inflating for the first time. While pumping up the ball it will push out air from the tips of the ball. This is completely normal. This is the air that is between the inside bladder and the outside panels. Simply pump up the ball completely. Once the ball is completely full, no more air will come out of the tips of the ball. It will stay inflated for a couple of weeks before you will need to refill it again.
