what do you mean by inner seams?
was your ball inflated when you got it?
No, it was fully inflated. My theory is, that its just the bladder, or the phsycal ball, showing through the padding. Thats why I said it remided my of veins popping out! Im just wondering if anyone else has this, or if I should just return i. But the other ball in the store had the same thing, so i unno
iono man you need to take pics cos i dont know what you're talking abou
Ok. Ive posted pics below, and one is circled in red. You can see the shading is deifferent, and that is the bump. It is mostly visible around the adidas sign on my ball
EDIT: Crap pics didnt go up. Heres the link instead. http://s922.photobucket.com/albums/ad63/turkeysnake/
iono man i can't really tell. You should be fine.
i want to get a new ball!
But there are too many of 'em
can you guys tell me the difference between these?
WC (jabulani) Official Match ball and Final series (150$)
WC 2010 Match ball (50$)
WC 2010 GLIDER(15$)
WC 2010(replique) (34$?)
I get confused with the Match Ball and glider which look similar and have the same grooves but there is a price difference. Naturally the replique is easy to differentiate and so is the official match ball(jabulani) due to the panels and prices.
No that is definitely not normal I would take that back right away. That doesn't exactly look like the "roundest ball ever."
No, that's totally normal. The ball just hasn't been blown up fully.
I have two Jabulanis, and they both had that before I pumped them up fully and let them sit. After that, the bumps will go away.
Exactly. Same thing happened to my Jo'bulani. Once fully inflated those will go away.
I think that one of my teamgeists had a little bobble like that on when i got it out the box, but once it was fully inflated and used its perfectly round now.
Inflate it, play with it, and if its still odd then take it back as its covered by a 2 year shape guarentee anyhow. If you'd rather have a perfect one right out of the box, then take it back now.
has anyone found any pink monta freestyling balls anywhere yet?!!
Thought this was interesting. Not surprised at all though.
soccer.com has monta ball now for special order. They have a freestyle, but it looks red to me.
I actually email monta to ask if they would be getting anymore in the store website. And I got a reply saying subside sports were carrying them. They do, but they are red too!!
i have that freestyle ball and it is class. the ball has a crazy good touch and its really durable. def reccomend it to any freestyler
What is the difference between the $30, $50, $150 jabulani balls. Which is the best according to price and quality.
The $150 Jubalani is the Fifa approved ball. What the pros uses in the World Cup.
The $50 Jubalani is Fifa inspected and it is lower quality, probably good for using everyday and training/taking it to training.
what do you mean by lower quality? i read somewhere the only difference the 150 and 50 is that the 150 has the fins or something. Otherwise its the same. Is that true? Please answer both questions.
Hey, is it just me or does the jabulani seem alittle smaller than other balls ? like select ones and such. Just brought mine to the park today and all my freinds said it were alittle small, Also why is there a barcode on the ball ? its printed and not just a sticker.
Why is it, every world cup the players complain about the ball?!!
I do however think the ball should have been saved for the WC and not used in the ACN or used in the German league for the past 5 months.
Don't forget MLS.
..... and the MLS! haha. I just think if its the tournement ball it should be saved for it.
Haven't heard anybody complain about the ball during the MLS season either. Yet there were plenty of complaints about the europass at Euro 2008. I wonder if the complaints are coming from Nike signed players, and Nike is just trying to create negative buzz around Adidas balls so they can swoop in and steal the next FIFA contract.
From what I can tell watching on tv, the ball just goes straight. Free kicks aren't dipping because the ball kept going straight. Shots are going wide because they went straight instead of curling. I'd think you would want a ball that goes straight... Heck during the friendlies a couple weeks ago Mexico played some small african nation on one of the worst pitches I have ever seen and the Jabulani actually rolled pretty damn well on it.
At the end of the day the people using the ball are elite professional players. They should be able to adapt their game to the ball. A football is a football. I personally think its a bit of an excuse.
is there a difference between the $30 jabulani ball and the $50 jabulani ball...? what is the difference.
Well, in an article I read today the most high profile addidas player in the tournment, Messi, said that the ball was "complicated" and would take some time to get used to.
When Messi talks about how players will need to get used to the ball, he brings up my number one gripe about this whole Jabulani thing which is not the design of the ball (although I certainly do have some issues with that which I already brought up elsewhere), but the fact that at the biggest tournanent in the game people are having to get used to new equipment. Look, the WC doesn't sneak up on anyone. There is no reason FIFA cannot say that a new ball design must be in use three years before the WC in leagues and tournaments around the world so its postive and negative effects on play can be thoroughly evaluated.
Now granted, I know adidas wants to be able to market ($) a special ball for the world cup. What they can do is change the graphics, name, whatever of the ball all they want before the tournment. But design of the ball as far as things such as paneling and materials must already be in use three years before the WC (which are the features of the ball that affect play).
