I agree as well about the TF 1000 but the only downside is it is about 50 bucks. My second favorite is the Wilson Jet which is about half the price.

I have no real issues with selecting an indoor ball, but a solid outdoor basketball seems much tougher to come by. Often I'll buy an outdoor ball that feels real nice (solid grip) but becomes smooth after limited use. Are their any long-lasting outdoor basketball ideas or suggestions?

The Zi/o excel is good outdoors but if you play on a dirty outdoor court then it will pick up lots of dirt the first 5-10 times...
