Spalding TF-1000 ZK Pro Basketball Reviews:
Spalding TF-1000 ZK Basketball Review 1) Vaclav T.: “It’s cheap but very good suff, excellent ballhandling, quite light compared to my old ball. Simply good bargain, I’m satisfied.“
Spalding TF-1000 ZK Pro Basketball Review 2) Jimmy F.: “This was my third TF-1000/TF-1000 ZK Pro. My first TF-1000 lasted for two years before it was stolen, and my second TF-1000 (ZK Pro) lasted for four years before it wore out. Both basketballs were the prime basketball used in weekly basketball games; and often times I ended up having to leave my basketball with a league I was playing with so they could use the ball for the rest of the games. Takes about a month to break in, but by far the best basketball on the market. I prefer the ZK Pro for the deep channels, but the TF-1000 is also a great basketball with narrower channels (all preference).“
Spalding TF-1000 ZK Pro Basketball Review 3) Mike F.: “The basketball came within the designated time. It is an indoor only ball. The construction, feel and bounce makes playing with the ball very consistent. This basketball seems to be the choice of the basketball organization that I belong. All other brands of basketballs are similar to this one and basically, it’s the player that has “game” than the basketball you play with.“
