    Bought one the day it came out. It is beautiful.

    MonkeyDJonas What are your thoughts on the Brazuca?  Have you had a similar experience to my own?

    I tried it and I didn’t like it.  It just feels artificial.  Your comment “s different as possible from any other ball that is currently available” rings true.  But why is that a good thing?  And why is faster flight a good thing?  I don’t understand why Adidas feels its needs to keep reinventing the soccer ball.  Nike makes an outstanding ball with very nice touch.  Adidas makes something ‘different’ without that touch.  I’ll take Nike.

      I never said that either of those things were good things, especially the faster flight. It all comes down to a matter of opinion and what you are looking for with a match ball. I also prefer the current Nike match balls that are available, but wanted to give all the details about the Brazuca that I found.

      And CRonaldo, it always seems like adidas is very aware that a ball that looks really different and seems unlike anything on the market will make them more money. It isn’t that they feel the need to reinvent anything, but they know that a large contingent of their customers will buy anything new.

      Thanks for your comment! Do you have the Ordem? Do you think it is an improvement over the Incyte?

    @CRonaldo It doesn’t necessarily have to be a good thing CRonaldo.  It’s all down to personal preference, but I feel that the review needs to have every aspect of the ball mentioned as the price for a top-tier match ball is quite high.

    The main reason adidas probably makes the seem so “different” is because they know that anything new will inevitably sell better as consumers always want the newest products.

    I can’t disagree with you when it comes to preferring Nike match balls, but everyone has a particular preference.  Thanks for reading and sharing your thoughts!

    I used one in San Francisco, and since it was around 52 degrees, the ball felt like a rock. The cafusa ball definitely feels softer in cooler climate. 

    Used it again in warmer climate and it was much better.

    That said, I still think Nike’s line of the last 5 years is superior, as much as wish that weren’t the case.
