Mitre Ultimatch 18 P
Advantages: Reliable, Great quality, Good weight, Travels well, Size 4 :)
Disadvantages: Bit more expensive
With a great opportunity at university to make use of the enormous fields and goals there, I agreed with some friends it'd be a good idea to get a football. I went searching and ended up buying this, which we all chipped in to. I had never heard of Mitre in the past until at the age of about 12, I was bought a Mitre football, which was very good. I decided to try this one out as it seemed pretty good.
I bought a size 4 version as I find the size 5 ones a bit overly big and the size 3 are just ridiculous. It's a lovely ball to play with - light, manouverable and great quality. Any football you play with needs some getting used to, but this one seemed very natural and of a perfect weight. If anything it was a bit light but I prefer this with footballs.
The ball is still in pretty good condition although it's very muddy! The cover has stayed on very well whereas with previous cheaper balls from Nike for example, the cover has just peeled away after use. We have yet to use the ball anywhere apart from a grass field but I have heard it's good for harder surfaces including astro turf and even street football.
When dribbling the ball, it's a great size to keep control of and it follows the feet well. The ball has a great feel if you pump it to the correct pressure as you can give it a good boot and it will 'give away' to a certain extent and fly well. This ball has the Mitre Ultimatch logo on the front with a blue design around it in the classic Mitre design.
This ball is of excellent quality as with most Mitre balls and I'd certainly recommend it if you are looking to buy one. It can't improve your football skills but it certainly helps to prevent anger when you have a good ball! You can buy it in sizes 3-5 from about £13 - £17 online depending on the size. It's a great ball and long-lasting and reliable too.
Thanks for reading!
Summary: A great ball, which is of good quality and plays well
