NON-durable Biggie Volleyball Date:
Overall Rating
I purchased a Biggie Volleyball a few years ago, it had a vinyl cover. This more recent purchase, the volleyball had a cheap cotton-like cover. I was intending to use it at the middle school level. It would not have lasted for 1 class period. For over $50 you should get quality that could last at least a year or 2???
