Buying a baskeball

Hi all, I'm buying a basketball for my nephew who plays district in U14's (top age next season).

I cant find what balls they use online.

Can someone please let me know?

Spalding TF 1000 size 7.

Buy from Rebel when they have 30% off if possible.

Just letting you know basketball SA will most likely change back to molten balls before summer season starts. Just hold off

Yes i heard that BSA were going back to Molten. U14's use a size 6 but change to size 7 in U16's so he'll only get a year from a $100+ basketball.
I'd hold off until he moves up to U16's.

IDM Sports. WTF? Weird. They probably have a sponsorship deal with a sports goods company or didn't want you advertising your business on here for nothing?

I am told that Molten require less maintenance with air loss and they tend to last longer than the Spalding.

And we all know how important a factor that is when selecting a ball. Forget bounce, grip, durability, moisture absorption, ... what you really want to look into is whether you'll need to give it a couple of pumps of air every week, or every fortnight.

That's how it works around here. If you look at the ads on the side or done the bottom from memory there will be such a business. I can't say for sure nowadays though as I used an ad blocker.

Molten is so much nicer to use. soft, grippy with good ribs. Spalding feels light and hard in comparison.
