Since last few weeks, I have been using this ball and is quite happy.The outer material is soft and tough enough to be played on hard ground.Highly recommended for people who plays on hard grounds asa well as grass surface.
The size and finish are good, but we noticed when playing with it that it was heavier than normal, so that my sons were a little more reluctant to go in goal.
We then managed to puncture it on our first day on holiday when it got kicked against a wire joining a chain link fence together. Having cut it open to try a puncture repair kit (which did work) we found the skin is made from moulded foam with very little strength in the outer layer. Other (lighter) balls we've owned have had quite tough outer skins which haven't worn out despite much kicking over hard surfaces, so we won't be buying another Kipsta ball.
Thanks for your review. I've passed your feedback onto Kipsta and I've since learnt a bit more about our footballs. The outer shell of the ball is a PU (polyurethane), which is really resistant against all normal surfaces. Under that, there is some foam to improve the comfort when the ball is kicked. Some models are made with PVC but on this model it isn't used so that the resistance and comfort are better, and the carbon footprint is lower.
Do you have any pictures of the ball for me to pass on to Kipsta? Just in case this is a faulty ball.

i always wanted a great ball in budget and the Kipsta F100 is exactly that, only for 700 this is a good quality product that can even compete with top brand products like Nike and Adidas at a much lower price tag, giving the satisfaction of playing with it fully in control in dry conditions it get's a bit slippery in wet conditions, the only reason i would've given 4\5, but since it fits in budget and is much much better than all the balls out there in the same price range, it deserves a 5, plus it doesn't loose any amount of air pressure or the roundness (given that you don't sit on it) I like this product so much that i bought this very same ball for the 3rd time and i'm really grateful that the quality and experience with the ball remained the same, i like the florescent green colorway but since it wasn't available i got this in the orange colorway.
-Fits in Budget, goes easy on the pocket.
-Never looses air.
-Doesn't looses its shape, stays completely sphere given that you don't sit on it.
-Comes in great colorways.
-Great control and feel because of the texture in dry conditions.
-Soft Upper, won't hurt while shooting because some balls do.
- can be too slippery in wet conditions and that's all.
A very professional use product.
Best quality football in cheap price and its an international quality
Excellent football for rough ground as in india most of the football grounds are rough without grass.
You can buy this ball if you regularly play football in your area. You won't get better football than this one in this price range.
Good ball for rainy season....
Ball quality given this time was not up to the mark,on our first day of training the ball got punctured
We are really sorry for the inconvenience we have caused you. I truly understand your disappointment as a footballer.
I would request you to take the football to any of our Decathlon stores so that we can identify what went wrong with the ball. It would be easier for us to understand if this is a manufacturing defect or due to any physical object.
Do be assured that we will have it replaced right away if it is a manufacturing defect.
Please do let me know if you have any further queries.
