    Customer review by drivetdi

    I needed to find a ball that is both light and small enough for my 4 year old son to shoot at a 6 foot goal so I bought him volleyball, and a "regular" jr Spalding" 27.5 inch ball at the local Walmart store. Though light enough for him to handle, the volleyball did not have the feel of a basketball, and the regular basketball... well, the thought of it jamming my boys finger on a ill-timed bounce made me think maybe he should stick with the softer volleyball for now. Then I found the Spalding Rookie ball online, I ordered the multi colored model. I was not disaapointed when I received it. Just a beautiful, beautiful ball. It's definitely lighter, and easier to handle then the regular jr ball. The cover is typical of an adult indoor/outdoor ball,offers a good grip, and the bounce feels true and sounds great. The multi color ball should help him identify if he's putting the right rotation on his shots. I was surprised though, that the ball was shipped without the original Spalding packaging, maybe it doesn't exist? It was just the ball in the shipping package.
