    What is the best indoor basketball?

    I enjoyed the well broken in Spalding Top Flites in the early 90s, but ever since the late 90s, I've been a staunch Wilson Evolution convert. My current evo might be on its last legs (about 7-8 years old)... I'm wondering if this is still the best ball in the market, or if there are other contenders.

    Wilson Evolution Game Ball

    Spalding NBA Official Game Ball

    Wilson Official NCAA Ball

    Spalding TF-1000 Zk Pro

    Wilson Solution

    Spalding TF-1000 Legacy

    Just for fun, Molten Leather Elite

    Official NCAA ball is where it's at. It has really nice grip it's perfect for indoor use.

    Yeah I love the Evolution. But I play outdoors alot so I've never purchased it. I've played with it at the gym before though and the grip is great

    Wilson evolution is the best value at its price, for 40 bucks you can't get a ball that has a more superior grip and handle than it. It's also the ball I carry in my gym bag.

    But the best indoor ball? Obviously the official NBA game ball, but it's pricey

    Edit: the official fiba ball is good too, I played with it a couple times.

    Looks like you have to break it in though, and it does feel a bit slick; the EVO has always had that built-in kind of grip on it.

    There's absolutely nothing better than a broken in Spalding NBA ball.

    I would add the Molten Elite (Fiba Ball) to the mix, both balls have really good feel and grip to them after braking them in. But they're expensive and a half the price composite ball will do nicely if you don't have the money.

    And you've used the Evolution before? Got me curious now. However:

    Two weeks! (Edit: most Amazon reviews say it takes up to 8 months) I guess I've only really had two indoor balls since I was 18, and they've both been Evos, so that time investment might not be a problem.

    Damn, these are the types of opinions that got me reconsidering Evos in the first place.
