Product Review and Description by Coach Jeff Haefner

The Mikasa BX1006 is 25.5 inches and weighs approximately 14 ounces.  It’s the perfect size for 6-8 year old girls and 5-7 year old boys.

The BX1006 is lighter than the commonly used size 5 youth and size 6 women’s basketballs.  This lighter ball allows young players to utilize proper shooting technique.  With the heavier basketballs, young players compensate by “slinging” the ball to the basket.  As a result they learn poor shooting technique and develop bad habits when using the heavier basketballs. 

The lighter 25.5 inch basketball allows young players to use proper shooting technique and develop good habits.  

This is the exact ball we use with our youth basketball teams.  And the ball I used for my own son and daughter when they play in 1st to 3rd grade basketball.

I have tried other small basketballs, however we were not satisfied with the quality.  The other brands developed lumps causing the ball to have an unpredictable bounce and several of them had trouble holding air for more than a few days.

The Mikasa ball is not perfect (it’s only $12.99) but I have found it to be an excellent ball for the price and I have yet to find something better.  This is the ball I recommend to all girls between the ages of 6 and 8 years old -- and boys between the ages of 5 and 7 years old.
