Under Armour 495 Composite Football is rated out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by KH427 from Excellent Football for the Casual Athlete This is a great football from Under Armour! I picked up the 495 to see how this ball faired against other brands and there's no doubt that this is one of the better footballs out there. Pros: -Excellent tack to the ball. The UA Gripskin provided good grip even in wet weather. Tack on the laces are incredible. -Ball has a nice cushion to it, even when fully inflated. -The ball feels incredibly light and doesn't weigh on your arm throw after throw. -Color doesn't bleed like conventional leather footballs. -Wear and tear on the ball is expected (especially when playing on the street), but this ball has held up exceptionally well. Only a few scuff marks and some grease stains from going under cars and hitting the asphalt. Cleaning the ball after each use keeps it in good condition and maintains the tack. Cons: -The embossed/printed areas are smooth and slick to the touch, but that's not really a problem when throwing as your fingers aren't touching those areas.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JD1021 from Ball Laces ripped in less than a month I got this ball for my son to replace his 2 year old Nike ball. He was super excited as he LOVES under armour. But in less than a month the laces started ripping. This ball was only used in the backyard on grass so how the laces even started ripping is beyond me. My son used it to practice his long snapping and the shotgun, but he did that with his old nike ball too with no problems. It's too bad the laces weren't more durable, the ball had a really good grip and unlike other balls at the YOUTH size the laces weren't extremely big like they are on the Nike ball. So needless to say we had to take this ball back in less than a month and go with the nike ball. so I would not recommend buying this ball until UA finds a more durable material for the lace

Rated 5 out of 5 by FVSRA Silver Stars from Works perfect for my Special Olympics Flag Football Team!! The athletes on my team love using this football for our games! They really like the grip and size. As a coach I believe it helps even the playing field when competing against other more gifted Special Olympics athletes. We definitely think this ball will help us defend our state championship in November!

Rated 1 out of 5 by noahd33 from Nice feel but won't fly straight Nice grip and feel but it's a very poor quality ball beyond that. 1st one I bought would not fly straight and the seams were not sewn straight. Took it back and bought a 2nd one. Threw it around in the store and it wasnt too shabby. However, took it home and a day later it was flat. Put air in it and then it wouldnt fly straight. Air pressure was correct too. A day later it was flat again. One of the worst footballs I have purchased.

Rated 2 out of 5 by recnepspencer from Not durable i got this football 3 days ago and it already got a small tear on the skin. This was only because i thew it and it barley scraped a tree branch. At first i though oh no big deal, and just put a little bit of super glue to hold the tear down. Now the football is off balance and WILL NOT SPIRAL. I threw it around for 10 minutes and not even once was it close to a spiral.

What is the difference between 395 and 495 footballs?
My son wants a UA football. He told me he likes the small UA football but I'm not sure of size and can't tell from your website. I'm confused of the difference between the 395 and 495 and between youth, junior, and your other size which your website won't let me write here because they say it's inappropriate language - ! (hint - it's two words (p*e w*e) and I'm guessing is your smallest size -?!). He's only 6 - and is small - so I'd prefer the smaller of the two. Could you please explain the difference between your footballs? Many thanks.
The UA GRIPSKIN 495 Composite Football is built with Premium composite leather cover for enhanced performance and durability.

is the 395 peewee smaller than the 495?
I am looking for the smaller of the two balls as I coach a 6-9 yr old team and noticed that the Nike Vapor and Wilson K2 seem to be smaller than the 495 I purchased. I like UA better and would rather use this brand but still need the ball as small as I can get it as my players are smaller than most. Thanks!
The 495 is only available in Official size and the 395 is built in PeeWee, Youth, Junior and Official! If you still have questions, you can reach a Teammate by phone at 888-727-6687.
