Bought five of the hybrids 2.5" to upgrade from my lacrosse balls, love these things. Got them five months ago, just put them in the wash a few minutes ago, not really bad looking despite dropping them in the clay and dust of a construction site many times. Just decided to see how they clean up. Great feel and weight, cept for the orange one has coarse texture different from the other four and the yellow one is a little out of round. Even so, I've put all my other balls and bags aside and use nothing else.
