Wilson ball?
« on: September 08, 2017, 08:58:06 AM »
I have a Wilson ball that was made in the mid to late 90s. I'm pretty sure its a urethane, and it's green in color. I was wondering if anyone knows who made this ball and what was it liken to?
It's not a bad ball I've thrown some decent games with it but went on to the newer stuff.

I do have one. I was able to snag a NIB one for a great price a year or 2 ago. put a modern drilling on it. It can have a place, but it doesn't "replace".

Urethane? (edit:  blue/green is yes)  Also can't have that ball without putting a palm print face on it ala Tom Hanks.

Thanks for the information on this ball. So it sounds like fabal was the manufacturer, was it a specific hammer ball? Does it have a weight block?

I remember WRW using a Wilson ball once or twice on the show. Didn't look bad at all.
