The ball Molten Basketball GL7 as the Official Basketball of FIBA, the Molten BGL Basketball Series has gained international recognition and acclaim as a top choice for elite athletes around the globe.

Molten’s GIUGIARO® or ‘G-Design’ enhances visibility, helping you focus on the movement of the ball. Push performance to the limit with Molten GL Basketball.
Please note – Molten’s GL7 Basketball is an all leather basketball and requires a break-in period of consistent play before developing a softer feel with optimum playability.

Comes inflated directly from the factory. Do not deflate ball as this may induce creases in the leather.
*Note – when inflating ball with a pump it is critical that the needle is lubricated before insertion. We suggest soft soap would be a suitable substance.
Molten Basketball GL7 Natural leather basketballs should be cleaned using a small amount of specially designed natural leather cleaner with a soft cloth.
Always store basketballs in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.
Never leave a professional sports ball exposed to extreme temperatures, for example in the trunk of a car on a very hot or freezing day. This can cause the ball to lose its carefully tuned shape or deteriorate the carcass.
Keep basketballs away from fire.
Using your basketball in rotation will give the leather time to breathe and extend the life of the ball.
Molten Basketball GL7 REQUIRES a break-in period, please do not expect to receive a soft, grippy ball as others may have stated. Out of the box, the ball feels very solid
and is comfortable in dribbling both casually and on the offensive. You will also notice the ball comes with a 12 panel design, different from the usual 8
panel design, but nonetheless feels very nice and comfortable as reported by customers, where they have stated that they like having more seams at their fingertips.
This is not a GRIPPY ball, and for those who grew up playing with REAL leather, balls know that grippy is not the desired feel. You need a balance, and this ball, similar to the NBA official ball, will achieve this. Just give it time and you will never want to play with a synthetic again.
