Is This A Pro Quality Basketball?
The ball is constructed with a rubber compound. The Midwest Pro League Basketball therefore can’t be a pro quality ball. Rubber compound balls are above all regarded as outdoor or recreational basketballs. It has a good grip for a rubber ball and was surprisingly much grippier than I had expected. The heavy, fully embossed Pro League name and Midwest logo conversely didn’t have a negative effect on the handling.
Visually the ball looks great and furthermore handles extremely well. However not everyone will like the large logo embossed into the ball.
