outstanding vinyl bladder Date:
Overall Rating
I was really impressed with the vinyl bladder. When you inflate it, the bladder becomes perfectly round. And it holds it's round shape even after kicking or bouncing the ball. I purchased other bladders from competing companies and they did not hold their round shape. Some did not even inflate round. So, I definitely recommend the Gopher vinyl bladder if your going to play cageball type of games.

This is a wonder ball to have. I run a camp for kids and we spent endless hours batting this ball around. It is also wonderful for volleyball or playing with in a pool. I would highly recommend purchasing this ball for any get together.

Cage Ball Bladder Date:
Overall Rating
I like the cage ball bladder. The yellow small hole bladder holds up so much better than the blue ones with the wider air entrance. I would like to see a cage ball pump attachment sold seperate due to the fact that they are easy to lose. Thank you

72" Cage Ball Date:
Overall Rating
The 2nd ball has been working great. The first one literally blew up when airing it up. The instructions should be updated to not only tell you the ball will stretch but that you must blow it up over a period of time taking breaks to allow it to stretch on its own. Blew it up to 4' and let it sit for a couple of hours. Then 5' and rest for another before finishing it off.

Love them but it poped its first time Date:
Overall Rating
I really enjoy the product and we have used them before. I like the old covers that were made of canvas. We just bought two new ones and inflated them and were using them with middle school kids in a carpeted gym and after about 10min one of them popped. I have no idea why it popped because there was no sharp items or such. It was a little discouraged but they said they would replace the ball and bladder for free so that's good.

"Dear Adam, Thank you for your feedback! We’re sorry the Premiuim Cage Ball that you had purchased popped after 10 minutes of use. The experience you have had may have been caused by over inflation. It sounds like you have already contacted our Customer Service team to replace the Premium Cage Ball that you had purchased. But if not, please contact us and we can arrange to either replace your Premium Cage Ball or can help you choose one of our heavier, more durable Cage Balls (we’d recommend UltraPlay Cage Ball ). Not sure what size you bought, but that bladder is much thicker. Please contact us at customercare@gophersport.com or 1(800)533-0446 and we will be happy to fix your situation. Appreciatively, Mike Prochaska Vice President of Supply Chain"

Lots of fun. The kids and adults both enjoyed it. Downside was that one of the eyelets ripped out the first time we used it, also the skin ripped out at the stitching in a couple of places.

third ball, third one ripped Date:
Overall Rating
I love the cage ball but I now have had three seam rip. The first one I inflated to 72" and the seams came apart. The second 72" ball I inflated to 68" and we played for a full day before a hole appeared near the inlet valve (weak point where velcro was placed to hold down the flap) Third ball broke this morning during play. I love the ball and would be willing to pay more for a higher quality ball. The 72' ball is really a 68" ball or it pops. Too bad the ball cost so much and is only useable for a short period before it breaks.

More Info

To maximize the longevity and performance of this product, we recommend following these care and usage instructions:

General Use:

• Inflate until the bladder is snug against the cover. Under inflating will not allow the ball to fit properly while over inflating could damage the cover or bladder.

• This product is intended for either indoor or outdoor use. The longevity of this product could be significantly reduced if consistently used on abrasive surfaces.

• Because the bladder material expands and stretches; it may be necessary to inflate, let the ball sit and then inflate again.

Care:

• Clean with mild detergent and water using a soft cloth or sponge.

Storage:

• Prolonged exposure to sunlight and moisture will shorten the life of the product.

• Store indoors in a clean, dry environment.
