I know it's an age-old question, but what's your choice for outdoor basketballs?

My absolute favorite. Playing with that ball is amazing...

GF7 = Indoors

Nice, I think I'll get a GG7. I think it'll help since all basketballs used here are Moltens. Btw, I play in my backyard which is some flat concrete ground, but mostly uneven ground along with small gravel stones around the area. Will it damage the ball too much or you think it'll be okay? Do you ever wash your ball if you use it outdoors? I've obviously had other balls but they're mostly the cheaper rubber balls I find in local stores so I didnt really bother washing them of the dirt.

I mixed them up then. Indoors one is great and we bought one for playing in a gym during the winter. They look really similar tho...

Yes. I wash my basketball every time I uses it.

Spalding Zi/O Excel is my choice for outdoor basketball.

Was using Wilson Evolution before but can't find it anymore so I'm poundin' the Wilson CIS right now. Can't bring myself to like the spalding though, not when they're brand new at least..played with a couple broken in ones and they weren't so bad (tf-1000)

imo they are both indoor balls. the difference between the two really isn't that big. (I don't know how long they last if you play outdoor though)
Personally I really like the Molten basketballs. It takes a bit time to get used to them due to the "double-lines", but the overall feel is simply great and I've played mine for 2 years and the grip is still very very good.
For streetball I use a Spalding TACK-SOFT PRO. Pretty happy with what I got for the money. I need to pump it up a lot though...
