These are PERFECT… I buy one a year because we actively use and beat the heck out of ours and always end up needing a new one, not due to lack of quality, but to the extreme amount of use it gets both in our household and even on active tackle football teams that my oldest son plays QB on… once you go up to the real leather official NFL ball, there is no going back… nothing beats it. You can sense the quality in the feel and see the quality in the flight of the ball compared to others. One year I bought one of these and a high quality composite, thinking we would use the composite during bad weather to save the official one… yeah, that never happened, the official one is so much better eventually you just say… the heck with it… and use it even during the bad weather (hence why eventually you want a brand new one again)!

The real deal here folks- I got this football because when I’m watching football on TV I have to also be holding a football for some reason. This ball also excels when I toss it up in the air on the couch to myself, hit the wall with it- knocking down the picture frames, bounce it into my wife’s drink- knocking it over and scaring the cats. It’s also awesome at lurking in the dark for me to trip over in the middle of the night. I ask a lot of my football, and as such I demand an official NFL Game Football.

I have bought 2 of these, about a year apart. They are leather and although I’ve never actually played NFL football, they do appear to be the exact game balls used in NFL games. One should realize, however, that when you receive the ball you purchase, it will not be broken in and game ready. In other words, Tom Brady would not want to use it during an AFC Championship against the Colts. Balls actually used for play are well broken in, shiny, tacky to the touch with great grip, and often much darker than the brand new ball you buy. Your new ball will be light in color, slippery, and covered with a red dye that will bleed if the ball gets wet. A little light wipe down with a wet cloth and maybe even some saddle soap will help remove the dye. Once your ball is dry, I suggest regulary rubbing it with a shoe polish brush (or Wilson’s proprietary brush if you believe them) to bring it to a shine and give it that tacky feel like the pros expect. My 1 year old ball is much darker than my new ball and I believe it may simply be darkening with time, as I have followed the same break-in procedures for both. See pictures below. The first picture is before and after of the SAME BALL, broken-in (top) and untouched (bottom). The second picture is my 1 year old ball (left) next to my new, untouched ball (right). And the brush pictured is what you can use to dry rub the ball to bring its tacky feel back. Ultimately, the ball is the real deal, and that alone makes it awesome, but it also feels and plays like a great ball as long as you realize how to make it so.
