I'm trying to decide on whether I should get the Nike Mercurial Vapor IIIs or the Predator Absolute TRXs.

What I'm looking for is good ball control but I still want them to be somewhat light.

I play as a defender and I've been using the Talaria 3s and I don't like them that much.. I hate the touch that they have and they're pretty skinny.

So, which ones should I get?

If you have other suggestions please tell

i also play defense and i would go with the absolutes because vapors are usually more for strikers and the absolutes are stronger.

I also just got the TRX's and they're quite nice, I'm a striker and they feel great after breaking them (like 30-50 mins of play) they have a great strike to them so I'd recommend them to anyone, I couldn't even gfit in the Vapors so they weren't an option...
