General Feeling about BD2000 / BDC2000

It is a great ball. We play with this ball day and night. The “Double Dimple” of the BD2000/BDC2000 combines a better gripping power with a gentle touch.
Also, even if you play with the BD2000 / BDC2000 for a long period of time, the ball rebound and its performace are stable. We can use the Mikasa balls for a long time without any problems. This can be said for all the balls produced by Mikasa, but the ball quality seems to be more consistent from one ball to another.
It is important for players to know the ball when you are playing in matches, and Mikasa clearly provides consistent, great quality balls which are good for players.

The Advantage to play with BD2000 / BDC2000

Because BD2000 / BDC2000 have stable performance for a long period of time, and it has consistant quality from one ball to another, we do not much worry about the ball even though we play with it all the time.

The Best Characteristic of BD2000 / BDC2000

It is a really durable ball with a powerful grip and a great gentle touch.
It is very comfortable playing and very suitable for basketball.

The difference between BD2000 / BDC2000 and the ball the athletes used to play

We used to play with other branded balls than Mikasa before. We feel that the BD2000/ BDC2000 are easy to control when we play with the ball and the cover material fits comfortably in our hands.

The ball of choice for Major International Competitions.
