TF-1000. Yea i know it says indoor only. But it will last longer, outdoors, than an outdoor ball will.
As long as its not real leather you can take it outside. And again evne the real leather balls(that i just got and i freakin love it) will probably last longer outdoors than an outdoor ball will.
Mine was used on ROUGH concrete too. As the closest court to my house is pretty crappy. Nice rusty ass rims too. Oh and it made its way into a retention pond on several occasions as well.

Huh? I had a never flat that i played with for 2 hours every single day and it lasted about a month. If your cheap im sure 3 woulda been fine but i noticed degradation at 1 month, with daily use.
Granted the court was a pretty rough concrete surface it wasnt like tennis court.
But my TF-1000 spent at least 100 days on concrete and its still fine.
