How to choose the best basketball?

That?s a question any serious basketball player has asked at some point in time. There are indoor basketballs, outdoor basketballs, and ones made for both indoor and outdoor use.

Indoors basketballs: they are made of better materials (full-grain leather), have better grip, have more consistent bounce, and are more expensive. They also need to be broken in for optimal usage by dribbling or shooting.

Outdoors basketball: they are made of cheaper material (rubber). They have worse grip, a less consistent bounce, but last way longer than indoor basketballs. The best outdoor basketball can handle the rough surfaces of asphalt, concrete or cement. They are ready to use immediately. It worth to remember that outdoor basketballs can be used indoors.
