PLAY: MOLTEN G BASKETBALL

Manufacturer: Molten
Sizes Available: 5,6,7
 

According to Molten, their new G ball, created by their Giugiaro Design Team, is a radical invention because it features 12 panels, rather than the standard eight, and "is packed with ground breaking technology to enhance player performance."

Lots of hype. But can they live up to it? The answer is emphatically yes.

The G ball a thick cushion foam between the leather surface and reinforcing layer which gives it a soft feel without any semblance of being cheap and nasty. 

It has fantastic grip and control as a result and the 'flat pebble surface' which Molten apply to all their balls has been boosted by flatter seams - much better for shooting accurately every time.

When we used it on an indoor court, it performed admirably. It bounces well, has nice, soft action on the rim, and is extremely light to the touch.

This may not be the best basketball ever created. But unless you own one of those shiny gold ones they hold up at the close of the NBA Finals, it comes pretty close.

Rating:  9/10
