Less noisy but what a mess!
By J. Hawke
My 9-year-old son got the SKLZ hoop for Christmas, and the mini-basketball ball that came with it was so loud that it was about to drive us batty. This foam ball was the perfect solution...for a few months. Then, the orange coating started peeling and getting all over EVERYTHING! :(

This ball is a bit smaller than the ball I got with my spalding mini hoop. It's good for keeping the noise down, has enough bounce though not as much as yhe rubber ball. However it has no grip at all. Slides off my hands easily therefore not allowing me to have a natural release when shooting the ball. You have to throw it instead of releasing off your fingers like you would woth a real basketball. Keeping it for those late nights when I don't want to wake up everyone in the house but using the rubber ball mostly.

Better For Indoor Hoops!
Much softer than the ball that came with the rim. This one is all foam whereas that one was air-filled, but had a basketball-like, hard exterior. Same size as the original. I wish the proportion of the ball to rim was the same as a pro ball to rim though. Would be a lot easier to make those shots from downtown!
