Response of the brand
Hello,

Thank you for your feedback. I have been assured from our brand that in fact the ball has passed all relevant tests to be FIFA standard. But you are right that it does not feature on this website. I will inquire into this and contact you again when I have more information.

Thank you again for taking the time to give feedback

STILL NOT A TOP QUALITY FOOTBALL
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
I bought this ball in Decathlon. In the promotional video there is the logo of FIFA Approved on the ball. However the logo does not appear on the ball phisically which is disappointing. We tried the ball in several amateur 11 a side matches on good artificial grass at a pressure of 0,8 bar. The ball was difficult to control by most players. The ball also was not spherical completely (perhaps one of the reasons for too much bouncing), and I carefully choose the ball between several F700. I also think that the ball does not reach the 135 cm bouncing from 2 metres. It goes to around 125 cm. One day in the game the ball after a big strike got punctured and lost air at the goal (perhaps with some sharp objetct tightening the net). I went back to Decathlon and they were very kind and gave me back the money. Overall I think this ball is a bit too hard, and being stored in the shop on a ramp one next to each other causes them that they loose some of their sphericity. It will really help if the ball would bear some FIFA A, FIFA I, or the International Match Standard logo. I still continue to buy stuff in Decathlon, buth I think F700 is not a top quality ball as it is right now. Hope it helps.

Bounces too much. Difficult to control
Response of the brand
Hello Nacho,

Thank you for your feedback regarding the ball. We have only recently has accreditation from FIFA on the ball so some of the older stock will not have the stamp on. All newly produced balls will have this stamp. Thank you for the feedback on the ball I will pass this back to the teams in Kipsta. 

Thank you

F700 Match Ball
Used for 1 week or less
Used the F700 Match Ball for the first time over the weekend and for the full 90 mins found it to be extremely reliable. Pressure maintained during the game and the ball never lost shape. Extremely easy on the foot, firm and solid. Never felt like it was going to lose pressure like other match balls. Weather conditions don't seem to affect the use of this ball. Material very hard wearing - YF
Maintained pressure, firm and reliable
