Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Football! I love this little ball. It strikes a perfect balance between plush and playable - firm enough to throw and kick, yet soft enough to prevent injury. If your dog loves fetch or chasing toys, he'll love this. For those who want more than the quick review, I've posted details below. Design: This ball is made of a lightweight foam rubber that has just enough give to make it safe for play, but remains stiff enough to be kicked and thrown effectively. It is covered in the signature high-strength, high-visibility orange nylon fabric Chuckit! uses for many of their fetch products, and features large, durable stitches holding it all together. There's a deep channel between the two fabric panels (the ball is designed with two panels something like a tennis ball, if there were a pencil inside stretching out one of the tennis ball panels), intended to make the ball easier for dogs to grab. There is only one size available, and it's about as big as of one of those rubber mini-footballs you'd find in the $10 bin at any sports store or Nike outlet. Performance: Overall, this has been great for fetch, as you might expect. I'll break this section down further to highlight different features. Kicking: It holds up well to kicking, and with good reason - that's the primary intended use, per the manufacturer. The erratic bounces of a football add a challenge for the dog, and you don't have to get your hands all slimy. The foam used is a great choice for kicking, with just the right combination of stiffness and bounce. My only issue with kicking is my dog - she doesn't know enough to keep her face out of the way, so I'm not comfortable swinging away down there. Throwing: The ball throws decently, but if there's room for improvement in the design, it's in this area. The deep channel in the ball runs right about where your thumb should go for a proper football grip, which makes it a bit awkward at first. Nonetheless, I've been able to get a good spiral most of the time. Because the ball is light, throwing distance is very much linked to the tightness of the spiral, especially if there's a breeze. On average, I'd say I can get this to fly about 150 feet on a good throw. Carrying: This is my favorite part of this ball. Because of the deep channel, my dog can pick this up pretty easily and run with it. But either the size or shape of the ball prevents her from getting an extremely firm grip, so she's fumble-prone. This is very important when you have a stubborn puppy who occasionally decides she'd rather be chased than play fetch. Miscellaneous: It floats, doesn't become waterlogged, and the fabric seems to be somewhat stain-resistant. It's still bright after a lot of rough-and-tumble play through grass, sand, and mud. For reference, my dog is a lab/hound mix who comes in quite healthy at just under 50 pounds, and the ball is a decent size for her. If they offered a larger option, I think she'd be more than capable of handling that as well. Durability: I expect to get decent life out of this ball. The material seems plenty strong for what it is. I don't let my puppy chew on anything that's not designed for chewing, but she has been known to play a little rough with her toys. Where her previous footballs would bust a seam within the first play session, so far, the stitching and fabric on this ball have held up without any sign of damage (no rips or fraying through a few solid hours of play time, or about three weeks' worth of play sessions).
