Which one is your favourite?

Tango's are obviously there to be loved. My favourite is Tango River Plate. I like the Nike Ordem 2 as well. My favourite World Cup ball is the Jabulani. A few others I like is the Volt Aspid Liga MX, Nike Ordem 2 Cachana, Cafusa and Questra.

I don't have access to pics right now, so if you want to see these just look them up.

Lib, the Jabulani was an absolute disgrace of a football.

I like the design of it.

I have a Jabulani (or had the Final ball anyways) and I can't remember it being too bad.

What were your flaws with it?

The way it traveled through the air was unpredictable - it seemed like it was designed to increase the likelihood of misplaced passes or to make goalkeepers lives miserable. Basically I think they wanted more goals.

It looks fine, it's just the way it behaved in game that got a lot of complaints from players.

And it failed at that too considering the 2010 World Cup didn't have so many goals. At least the Spain games didn't :lol:

Often the players who criticise (say) Adidas balls do so when they have a Nike boot contract.

Thanks mate. Would have never found out what Criticize means.

I recently got the Copa America ball, the Nike Ordem Cachana. Haven't had much of a chance to use it yet because of the snow, but I am looking forward to use it more.

I'm not sure what to get next. I kinda want the Brazuca Final Rio or the Tango River Plate next. Also the Fevernova or a regular Nike Ordem (the one used in the PL, Serie A and La Liga)

There is this video of this guy who has a crazy collection and I'm jealous. I want to have a collection like his :lol: I'll share it when I get the chance

I think I haven't bought a football in a decade.

I particularly like any football from Nike. I use all of my footballs on concrete and I have noticed that Nike are superior. I bought an Adidas F50 and Champions league replica ball and they both broke within 2-3 weeks
