Description

This Molten Flistatec V5M5000 volleyball has been developed using Molten FLISTATEC® technology, which stands for Flight Stability Technology. It claims to offer increased ball control and improved visibility by improving the air-current around the ball while in flight. Research by Molten revealed that by placing raised hexagonal shapes on the surface of the ball flight stability has been enhanced. Further improvements include the adding of a softer, thicker microfibre layer to the ball which, when combined with the secure nylon wound layer and the uniquely designed hexagon surface layer, increases the grip and allows for firmer, more accurate overhand passing.
