Molten BGLX (GL7X) Indoor Premium Leather Basketball, FIBA Official

Molten basketballs are starting to gain some popularity here in San Antonio, but they are nearly impossible to find at local retailers! I recently did some research on the line-up of Molten basketballs, and I decided to order one of their Elite Competition, indoor balls. I decided to purchase the BGLX-Series basketball for the aesthetic look and premium leather material. Watch the following video for an up-close look at this FIBA official, indoor basketball.

Initial Thoughts:

This ball is well-crafted and has a beautiful design! When comparing this ball to the Wilson Evolution, the first thing I noticed was that this ball feels about 10-times harder right out of the box! To be fair, Molten does say that it might take a couple weeks to break-in the leather… Regardless, this ball looks & feels great and I can only imagine how much better it will become after the leather gets a little softer.

  • Official Basketball of FIBA

  • Top grain leather cover
  • Flat-pebble surface

I hope you found this product review to be helpful, and I will follow-up with another review of the Molten BGLX after I have given it a little more playing time.
