Very Rough finish, for better control, however, dimples
are slippery, significantly larger and not as grippy as the vinyl models. Useful as a practice
ball. Can become brittle in colder temperatures, and is not suitable as
a match ball. However can be an OK training ball. But does feel different
on the stick. It is however better than the vinyl balls when used on non ice surfaces
(ie: Gym Broomball), as it slips better and offers an experience closer to the feel on ice. However it appears that these may no longer be available via the DGel website. The alternative is the Acacia Rec broomball. Slightly larger that a regular broomball and smooth, this ball offers a good alternative for Gym broomball.
