  • 9/24/2017 Color sent may not match what is ordered!!

    5 Review Stars By Derek

    I figured I’d be shipped what I ordered as pictured. I did not, I received an all yellow ball. That being said, the quality of the ball itself is great. Mikasa makes a great product!

    The first ball we ordered was loosing air overnight, so we have made a return and have not yet received the replacement.  Customer service did an excellent job and I wil update my post once we get the new ball.

  • 9/18/2016 Buying Mikasa vs Kap7

    4 Review Stars By Jonathan C.

    For price it is a good ball. However, if you're looking for a better game ball with good grip, go Kap7. If you're looking to mess around and work on grip, it is perfect.

    5 Review Stars By Bear

    Arrived on time. Inflated properly and feels better than the model we played with on USA National team in the 60 - 70's! Now if I could only find a senior men's team! The ball will definitely help the options I have in my swimming workout program.

    5 Review Stars By Old waterpolo player

    Has good feel . Handles well. Must admit that it was at least 40yrs. Since I last played with one. Now use it to strengthen my swimming  and to take some of the boredom out of lap swimming.

  • 10/16/2009 water polo ball great buy

    5 Review Stars By Robin K.

    Wasn't expecting it to come deflated but for the price, this is a GREAT purchase and the time it took to inflate it was minimal.  Hardest part was finding a needle that wasn't broken!
