Mikasa Official FIVB Beach Volleyball VLS300
This was the official ball of the 2008 Olympics in Beijing and will most likely be chosen for the 2012 Olympic Games as well. It now has been updated with new graphics; it is bright and easy to spot in the sky on a sunny day. It has great durability, coming with a 2-year warranty. It is also a great choice if it is often damp where you play, as it holds up well in wet conditions.
If you purchase this ball, you may notice that it is a bit hard around the valve area, but once you break in the ball more, this is no longer an issue.
