I went to buy one the other day, and they gave me a size 5, I didnt look at the same, went home, pumped it up, and thought, bloody hell its too small, so went back, and asked for a different one, but that was a size 5 too. I said in the catalogue it says theyre size 7, and she just babbled on about getting loads of balls at the same time...so

Yeh Ive got 2 crappy cheap ones but they tend not to be the right weight and stuff, need a proper one, and the better they are the longer they last..

That wilson one would do, but delivery is £2.95, meaning I might as well buy it from the shops

Is there no other sports shops like JJB that sell them?

Probably (though I can't remember the last time I went into a JD), have a look. Hopefully they don't just sell those really small ones though (size 3?).

I would try spalding.com or co.uk if it exists. I got a spalding infusion for christmas last year and it is the best basketball I have ever had.
