It is round and bouncy. When I shoot it it always goes in the hoop. It's almost magical. The color is pretty too! I have both the 28.5 and 29.5 diameter balls. They are my two best friends. I feel all tingley inside when I see them.
Oh, they are really grippy like the previous reviewer said and we always use them as game balls. If used outdoors the cover wears out in about 6 months. Indoors I have yet to wear one out.
They don't really work well as ping pong balls though - they keep breaking my paddles.
