Great "specialty" ball...

  • User Rating: Excellent

  • Durability:
  • Feel:

Pros:Great for dunking practice. Even small hands can hold onto this baby.

Cons:Feels a bit rubbery off the boards and rim.

The Bottom Line: Good ball for dunking and putting on a show, but not the best ball for regular competitive team play.


The feel of this ball is great. Ball seems to "stick" to your hands and makes even average ball-handlers feel like they're under control going down the court. If you're on your way to dunking, this is a nice ball to have--most balls I can only palm 50% of the time when going up, but this one gives the best grip of any ball I've used. Even my wife can palm this one!

The downside is that next to a more traditional ball, the Wilson Jet feels kind of spongy and rubbery. I put this ball up side-by-side with a Spalding composite leather all-surface ball, and inflated them identically. (Both were brand new.) The Jet Official had a completely different feel off the rim and the boards--interesting and cool, but, well... weird.
