Odd bounce, slick along logo, poor grip
As a busy working Wife & Mother, I love when I have time to be able to sit and relax and just hang out with my family. Generally, weekends are reserved for family activities and since my kids are so active and love the outdoors, basketball is often a family favored sport. For the past few months, our old basketball had really been showing signs of wear and I decided to get a new basketball. After 3-4 days of researching a variety of basketballs online, I decided to get a Spalding TF-1000 LEGACY BASKETBALL. When it arrived, I was quite pleased with its quality stitching, weight, and my ability to grip it easily and my family loved the iconic Spalding burnt orange color. But after, 6-7 days of continuous use in the hot, dry Texas sun, we noticed that the ball began to get an odd bounce whenever you dribbled it and it did not seem to matter if we were playing indoors or outdoors. Also, the ball became slick during play, along the side where the logo and bar code are and everyone seemed to have a hard time handling the ball, even just simply bouncing it. So much for quality and longevity. Huge Disappointment!
