We received our women's hologear basketball and the first thing I noticed was the quality of the ball. My kids are known for tearing up some basketballs, but this one was very well constructed. We love this ball and have had a great time playing with it. Another great part of this purchase was the thank you letter from company that also had a little autobiography on who the owners were and how they started the business. That extra personal touch to their product made it that much more special. As a veteran and a small business owner, its always great to see younger adults starting businesses. Thank you for the great product!
