Molten Vantaggio Football Top Hybrid Size 5 FIFA Quality Pro PU Leather Ball
- FIFA QUALITY PRO: FIFA Quality Pro is the highest accolade that can be awarded to any ball and is reserved for only the best standard of match ball available. To gain this, the ball design must go through rigorous testing at a neutral ball testing facility in Switzerland. There are seven tests that are run before the Quality Pro stamp is awarded.
- SHAPE & SIZE RETENTION: This test is only used on FIFA Quality Pro footballs and it's designed to ensure the ball can keep its shape under all conditions. The ball is fired at a steel plate at 31mph no fewer than 2,000 times! Only balls which suffer the most minor of alterations under these conditions receive the approved stamp.
- LOSS OF PRESSURE: The pressure of a ball has to be consistent throughout the entirety of a match, if it varied then the ball's flight would become unpredictable. A Quality Pro ball is pumped up in the laboratory and left for 72 hours - by which point it cannot have lost more than 20% of its pressure or it would fail the test.
- WATER ABSORPTION: We've all used a rubbish football at some point that just soaks up the water when it rains. What happens to it It soon becomes heavy, hard and doesn't fly properly. The Quality Pro ball is tested to make sure water absorption is kept to an absolute minimum. It is immersed in a tank of water, squeezed and turned 250 times and then tested to make sure it has absorbed no more than 10% of the ball's capacity in water.
- NEW VALVE: Adopting a new valve reduces friction (40% compared to the previous Official Match balls) when inflating the ball, making it more resistant to damage, and increasing air retention for superior performance during play.
