When inflating a ball with a pump or using a pressure gauge, it is critical that the needle is lubricated before insertion.
We suggest soft soap would be a suitable substance
High quality ball only pressure gauge with over inflation release button.
A must for any coach or anyone serious about ball games.
Correct inflation ensures that all Molten balls travel through the air accurately and/or that it bounces correctly on the playing surface. Correct ball inflation is important to maintain a technically superior product.
The correct ball pressure can be found printed on all Molten Balls and an inflation chart is available on the website under our 'Technical' section. See here.
