Believers are more about the work than the hype. Considered the hidden gem of basketball training, the NBA Weighted Training Aid Basketball helps develop strong passing and dribbling skills. It has the same feel and bounce as an NBA regulation ball but with a weight to build up your arm strength.
Official NBA® size of 29.5 in. Bounces just like an NBA® regulation ball. Improves wrist, arm, and finger strength. ZK® microfiber polyurethane composite cover. Recommended for indoor play only. Weight: 3 lbs. Made in China.
I use it to find my hand placement and form when shooting. After my first hour of practicing form I was asked to play a 3x3 pickup game. First touch of a standard ball and I made a deep 3. I felt as though the standard size ball was a kids size ball after using the large training ball. It felt easier to control and grip immediately. This training ball is not magic but it is a great tool as long as you put in the time at the gym. I’ve had lots of compliment by people who try it casually at the gym. Buy one, you won’t be disappointed.
I got this item for a relative who is a college student that loves to play basketball.Spalding is a brand we are familiar with so naturally this brand was the choice for us. He loves this ball. The only down side is that it can only be used indoors which is my fault for not completely reading the information about it. He still uses it to practice in his school gym and our local rec center.
This is perfect for what I wanted it for. It is an extra large basketball and I think that people use them for trying to make making a basket in a regulation hoop a little bit harder so that it's easier when you have the smaller ball. But I got it because I wanted a large basketball for my children to play with in the backyard we don't have a basketball hoop set up so they just like to practice bouncing it to each other and trying to dribble. All three of my children use it, my 10 year old, my five year old and my two year old and they all have fun with it.
This basketball helped me build some strength in my grip tremendously!! My dribble is stronger and so are my fingers. I now have better control and a stronger throw during my basketball games. My passing is quicker with a regular ball as well, all thanks to training with this weighted ball. I highly recommend it!
Im really impressed with the quality of this basketball. Made very well. The bounce is perfect and its the perfect size. The size is what i love the most. Shipping was fast and packaging was very nice. Right now ive only used it downstairs and let me tell you this is worth the money so happy i choose this one! The grip is good to.cant wait to go shoot some hoops this summer. I cant wait.
You can see the quality just by taking it out of the packaging. I have been wanting an outdoor/indoor ball, this is perfect. It is well made, bounces well, and honestly a game changer. I do have to share with my 14 year old son, but it’s a great outdoor activity we both enjoy. As long as you keep the right amount of air in it, it’s performance is above anything else I have used. I’m going to buy my 14 year old one!
I received this product and I am amazed. I love basketball and this ball is perfect I like it has great dribble and I love the grip on it. It doesn’t feel like other balls. My kids also enjoy the ball they have stop using there own ball and have started using this one. I recommend anyone who is in the market to purchase to go out and buy this one it’s GREAT.
This is a good, reasonably priced basketball. The composite leather makes for a nice grip that is easy to control. I've only used this indoors, so not sure how it holds up with outdoor use. However, it's very sturdy and durable, so I'm convinced it will stand up to my kids' play.
I received this product for a honest review. My boys enjoy playing basketball and this is one they can play with. It is from a brand that can be trusted. Very sturdy and dependable basketball. I would purchase this ball if I need a good quality basketball.
My son has just started to show an interest in basketball and this has been a great choice for him. It is just the right size and it has a good grip to it and isn’t slippery at all. He hasn’t had any issues with it losing air no matter how rough he is with it.
I have two little ones that are learning how to play basketball and this ball has come in very handy. It does not bounce as high as the regular size ball which helps with learning how to dribble. It is easy to handle and catch, and they have no problem shooting it through the hoop. Overall this ball is helping improve their techniques and understanding of how the ball should be held.
This is a great basketball. Spalding is one of our favorite sports products and one of the only brands I buy. It is well made and I have no doubt that it will hold up to whatever my boys put it though.
This basketball is a composite including leather so it is appropriate for both outdoor and indoor play. The covering of the ball allows for excellent grip. The ball is evenly weighted. The ball bounces very true with proper inflation. Spalding makes the official NBA basketball and the quality shows in this ball.
Spalding did well with this ball design. it is very predictable and it handles well. My 14 year old son and I play ball with it and it feels good to the both of us. When playing with lesser quality balls, it’s hard to get a comfortable air pressure that suits both of us. This ball has the perfect bounce and the grip is on point! Nice ball!
My son uses this basketball for practice and for recreational playing. We originally aired it up a little bit more when we first got it and it has held its air for a while now so no complaints there and it’s a really durable basketball.
This is a really nice basketball for the price. Good weight. Good balance. Nice feel in your hands. Great quality. The Spaulding TF-500 does not disappoint. Consistent feel, the Spaulding name lives up to its reputation.
This basketball is great! The first thing I noticed it how expensive it felt! The leather is very smooth and comfortable during use, but also easy to grip. Excellent bounce and durability. Very easy to inflate and so far has held air through heavy use. We regularly go to the gym to play basketball and I have gotten numerous compliments on the TF-500. Highly recommend for any basketball player!
I recieved this ball for reviewing purposes and I am very pleasee with it. My children and I like alot of outdoor activities and basketball is one of them. We play at home and at the park and the material of this ball and overall features are awesome, works great on black top and gym floor def recommend it
Extremely happy with the durability and the quality of the basketball. Whenever I find this specific brand of basketball I will more than likely purchase it. I would highly recommend this product to very close family and friendd
I ordered this for my kids, 10yo boy & 9yo girl. I wasn't really sure of the recommended ages/sizes for each type of Spalding ball -- isn't a basketball a basketball? Alas, my son opened the box when it arrived and his first comment was, "It's beautiful!" He likes all the gold trimming on it, thinks it makes it look fancy. Both kids noted that it's heavier than what they're used to, so I think it's intended for an older child to adult. But we're happy with it so far, and expect it to hold up a while as they grow into it. Packaging was great.
My daughter has shown a great interest in wanting to play basketball. Getting this over sized trainer was the best. She was able to get used to the ball. Dribble and practice shooting hoops. It really made it easier because of the size. It dribbles perfectly.
This is a really nice basketball. Worked well for the kids to practice with, and I really liked using it too. I love the weight of the ball, and it has a really good grip. Dribbles nicely, easy to shoot.
I really don't know much about basketballs, but this one is perfect for my 15 year old daughter who loves sports. I would say basketball is her favorite and she has used this ball quite a bit since receiving. They are made with such great quality!
I mean what can I say, this is an awesome basketball. I have a range of age kids and they all enjoy it and look forward to having matches with each other. Keeps them busy and active and outdoors. Love it
This is a ver good training tool. After using it for about a week I have noticed quite an improvement in both of my sons shot accuracy. They are both very happy about this. The weight is the same just the size of the ball is bigger. So this forced them to be more precise with their aim.
This Spaulding oversized trainer basketball has been a huge asset to my daughters ongoing training. The oversize of the ball enables her to focus on her archs and shooting technique with ease. She enjoys the way the ball fits in her hands. The quality of the ball is amazing. I looks like it's built to last through years of training. The leather is well intact and the ball is stylish. I would recommend this to anyone working in their basketball techniques
This basketball works great. It dribbles nicely and is easy to pass to another player. It also feels good in your hand because it has a nice grip to it. The grip on the basketball ensures that you have maximum control of the ball while maneuvering it throughout a game. This basketball is a high quality ball that really improves the game!
My two boys are 6 and 8 and we recently got a regular basketball hoop stand and needed a good ball. This is perfect! It's a solidly made ball from a great brand. It withstands the throwing, bouncing and rolling like a champ. It even looks nce! This will last them for years.
My son plays competitive basketball indoor and this really helped him step up his game. The grip he says is the best and really is able to keep in control of the ball. Held air very well and looks really good! This is his go to ball and all the kids love to play with this specific ball.
This Spalding TF-500 Basketball is a great basketball choice for indoor use. Its a full size basketball it has a great bounce to it and the leather cover is wonderful. Would defaintly purchase again and again.
This Spalding ball works so well. My son cannot get enough of it. It's so great in our garage, this ball was a great fit. The tread on it too is awesome, it keeps the ball from really falling out of your hands.
This basketball is really great quality and it’s for outdoor use. It bounces really well and the material feels good and grips nice on your hands, my kids were very excited to get this new ball to play with on their Basketball rim out back. We are all very pleased with this product
My son loved this ball. We just got a new hoop, so he needed a new ball to go with it! So happy I was able to try this! He said the bounce is great! It’s smooth on your hands, great grip. He also loves that he can bring it to indoor courts as well!
I always expect quality products from Spalding which is why we don't buy anything else. TF-500 is no exception. My son use this basketball heavily for over a week both outdoors and indoors. It dribbles well. It's a great ball to practice your crossovers with. It has a really nice, sticky grip. It's also helping him perfect his shots. It's best quality however is it's ability to keep air in. It doesn't feel like it's lost any air pressure from the first time we un-boxed it. We had a Wilson basketball that wouldn't hold air and needed pumping every time my son wanted to use it! It got to be a pain. So this is a huge factor for us! We will continue to stay loyal to Spalding!
This Spalding TF-500 Basketball is durable and very well made. All of the kids that have come over really like playing with it. This basketball is easy to grip and has a high bounce. I have a feeling this basketball will last for a long while. Great product!
This ball came already inflated, not in the least bit flat. It is a pet peeve of mine to have to inflate a ball when I first buy it. It's made with high-quality materials and I believe it will stand the test of time. Definitely would recommend.
I really like the indoor/outdoor basketball it is a nice looking ball and is very durable quality basket ball. The bounce on the ball and the rotation are good and consistent. My daughter really likes the feel of this ball over another we had purchased.
I got to try this free and must say it's the best basketball it's. Great for throwing back and Fourth when you have problems with your hands this is great to work out your fingers or just to pass it around this is the ball for you it's great for working out to and basketball!!!
I absolutely love this Spalding basketball. Me and my kids have a driveway basketball hoop and we haven't been able to stop playing since. It's a great way to get your children to get out of refresh air an exercise on a regular basis. The quality is great to bounce is awesome there really is no better brand of basketball makers out there than Spalding.
This is a really great ball! My son has been playing basketball with it nonstop! The bounce is great, the grip is awesome and we love that it’s full size. We would definitely recommend this ball to anyone who wants a quality basketball!
My family really enjoys playing with this basketball. The ball has a great leather feel and grip to it and bounces very well. It is of high quality and very durable and it has maintained its air pressure well. It also maintains its color with daily outside use. It has the right size for my ten year old son to handle and shoot and he has been playing with the ball daily. Really recommend this basketball!
This ball will have you feeling like you are a professional. It has the perfect grip. Boys, girls and little kids would live playing basketball at the park and it is made of nice and thick materials. This ball is both indoor and outdoor.
Spalding never disappoints. This basketball is everything I remember it to be. It is lightweight, made of composite leather, and is the perfect size for any pick up game. If you are looking for a ball that is the best, I would highly recommend getting a Spalding
This ball made by Spaulding has great quality, it’s super lightweight but has all it needs to used as a indoor and outdoor ball. Helps keep my son busy and we got out a shoot a few hoops together. Very well made ball
The basketball itself was bigger than I anticipated but it actually is beneficial for practicing with. It’s harder to make shots with this ball because of its size but I think it also helps you play better later when you play with a standard size ball. It’s definitely very beneficial to practice with this ball in the long run. I like the size and the feel as well. It’s a little softer than I thought it would be.
Received my NBA WEIGHTED TRAINER BASKETBALL and love it!! Bounces like a Regulation Basketball Designed to improve arm, wrist and finger strength for better dribbling Enhances arm strength during passing drills.. easy to use. not heavy at all , weighing in at 3 pounds. works great for indoor training I would definitely recommend this ...Spalding is a brand i trust
Spaulding has played a big part of our family for years. my fiance has trained youth for years and is now training our son in the game of basketball. The Spalding Premier play is the perfect size for training at the age range that he coaches. It is well constructed and I like that it is designed for indoor and outdoor play.
Love this brand of basketball. Absolutely great and durable and shipped really well. We were able to open the box and immediately take it out and use it. Overall if I had to recommenda a basektball I would recommend this one easily
I really like this oversized trainer basketball .It’s very high quality and very durable. It is noticeably larger than a regulation size ball. My son use it outside on concrete and it is not showing any wear or tear. My son have seen improvements in shooting since using this ball. Definitely recommended.
My son loves everything sports so when he saw this weighted ball- he thought it would be awesome to try to improve his skills. Ball is a bit more heavy and definitly require some getting used to at first- but after using it and shooting a normal ball- he did the normal ball with such great ease. After continual use and training he should be able to master his shooting technique.
