Unique Sports Ball Doctor Leak and Flat Repair Kit
About this deal
We respect valuable historic artifacts, and irreplaceable autographed balls so we advise a consultation to make sure the process is appropriate. Please call Paul Cunningham at 201-857-4647 for a free consultation. Technical note: We use genuine butyl rubber bladders which weigh about 4oz more than Polyurethane bladders. Polyurethane bladders are used in most modern footballs. We've repaired hundreds of footballs, including Wilson, Rawlings, Nike and Spalding footballs, some surprisingly new. We've noted that polyurethane bladders don't expand and contract, making them vulnerable to changes in air pressure and changing weather conditions. What we see every day is that polyurethane bladders aren't very durable and they actually disintegrate. In contrast, butyl rubber expands and contracts with changes in air pressure, so butyl rubber bladders, while a bit heavier than polyurethane, are simply more durable. Like all inflated sports balls, butyl rubber bladders will slowly bleed air over time and will need to be re-inflated periodically. Please refer to our Football Repair FAQ if you have any questions. Size 5 is available in a light version for pros who want to keep the original weight and a heavy version for those who prefer quality over games ;-) Keep collections to yourself or inspire other shoppers!

Do you have an old relic? An old football with historic significance or sentimental value? An autographed football that is no longer holding air?
