I have never tried it, but saw a videotape on the sportsmagazine. I understand why they reclame. Why make a new ball, with new skills - diferent from what they are trained for. I find it stupid!

ALL balls are different. One to another. I have tried it, i am not an profesional, but still. Its moving a bit strange on shots and long passes. Thats about it. It seems fine to me.
