Advantages: Cheap and durable football
Disadvantages: Nothing much
The Mitre Ultimach can be bought for £12.95 at the time of writing and is available in sizes up to five. The football is used by academies and has a good reputation, built over the years. It can be used on both grass and artificial surfaces and I have used this on concrete too now and again. I have had this football for a couple of years and have only pumped it up a few times so I can't complain as I have had a lot of use out of the ball and it doesn't cost a great deal of money. If you have a pump you can get this ball back in action very easily on the rare occasions that it does deflate.
I feel that this football in my experience is quite durable. It hasn't become too stratched on the surface as of yet despite being used on concrete sometimes. The ball is of a good solid weight and has a simple design that does look quite nice and simple. Be careful if you use it in the back garden though! I have owned many footballs and out of all of them this is one of my favourites so far.
I like the fact that the ball doesn't get caught up in the wind or move around in the air. This is a proper football that can be used for school matches. Because it comes in different sizes you can buy this for children and pick a size that is appropriate for them. I have used this ball on playing fields many times and it is a reliable ball that bounces well and doesn't lose its shape. If you want to get your hands on a cheap but good quality ball for a kick about with your friends then this is a very good option.
This is one of the best footballs in the lower price range and one that you should get a lot of use out of. The ball feels good when you kick it and also skims along the grass very well too. If the day is breezy the ball will hold its own quite well and has good weight and inflation. I have not had any big problems with his football since I bought it and would recommend it to schools especially.
Summary: Great football
