Adidas Free Football Poppy Soccer Ball
Great ball for sale price
Bought on sale for $15 @ CT
Great not hex-stitched ball for the cost. Loved it through and through.
Some parts of the ball where stitching meet are harder than the rest of the ball. Doesn't roll very straight on flat cement, but great on turf.
The protective coating on the outside peels quite easily.
Ball seems a little smaller and lighter than others when you kick it hard, but still works fine for a casual game.

No complaints - other than this ball will absorb water if you're playing in a wet environment.
Not good for rainy games.

I purchased this ball when it was first released in 2009. It features a machine stitched shell and a butyl bladder for extended air retention (what I've come to expect from standard replica balls).
1) It complies with FIFA regulated official size and weight.
2) The Aerodynamics and non-traditional panels allow for great spin on undersides of the ball.
3) It is perfectly rounded from every angle which gives the ball good balance and allows for a smooth curve when struck.
1) The Internal linings of the ball are cotton wound instead of nylon wound, which lessens the durability of the ball.
2) Ball retains excess water within linings if exposed to wet environments for prolonged periods.
3) The thermoplastic polyurethane coating wears out quickly leaving the ball exposed to the 'wear and tear' of weather changes.
4) The wearing out of the coating causes the ball to lose its ability to retain air and shape.
Conclusions: Overall a decent purchase for the amateur soccer player who is looking for something that gets the job done. However, it is quite pricey.

AMAZING SOCCER BALL!
I've owned a lot of soccer balls in my time, but this one takes the cake!! Sturdy and attractive, it rolls really well because it's round! Me and the kids love to kick it with our feet and watch it roll along the ground! You can also throw the ball through the air or bounce it up and down because it's extremely bouncy! I highly recommend this excellent round bouncy ball to everyone!
