The Beach Pro Mikasa BV550C ball is the new professional official FIVB beach volleyball game ball for play in all international competitions of the world's best professional competitions. The surface of the ball offers a softer feel and the indentations on the surface provide better grip, control and excellent handling for a superior game. Its composition with a combination of newly developed material ensures a lower water absorption. The three-color combination is the key to its visibility both by the players and the audience in all weather conditions, and the 10-panel composition provides it with exceptional sphericity and thus the best gaming experience. Care is also taken to reduce the impact on the environment, using synthetic leather with recycled nylon.
