i dont buy soccer balls because of what they do when you shoot it. I bought it because it has a really nice feel, good to dribble and pass with, light and not to sticky but not to smooth. great ball besides the shot, atleast my team loves it we use it all the time

I've played with it. There is nothing good about it. it's bad for anything in the air. including shots crosses and any long ball.

have to agree with nick on this one.. i finally got to play with it a few weeks ago and it is just awful lol. i kept having my outswinging crosses going out for goal kicks.
i'd like to get a speed ladder, but i don't think i'd stay interested in it for very long, so it probably isn't worth it.

Yeah, I have the Jabulani and a CL OMB from last year. My Jabulani might as well be a regular training ball because I never use it. Unless I got an outstanding deal(I mean like $30 or $40), I wouldn't get another one. I'm not trying to knock your purchase, but seriously look into alternatives unless you just absolutely love it.

I'm getting a pair of cleats or two (if i get 2 the second pair is gonna be cheap), plenty pairs of socks, ....... Just what I need right now....

I've also played with a Jabulani, its not that its a bad ball, its that you really have to get used to it, I mean pro's have, around the world there are leagues that play with Jabulani's and they don't complain..... But it can be a bitch with the spins it takes, and stuff.

well sorry for likeing the jabulani ball guys, jesus christ... anyways for whoever said they wanted a speed ladder. i have one and its pretty good. i dont use it alot because i never saw improvements from it, probably because i only used it a couple times a week. But i think if your dedicated to useing the speed ladder every single day its definitely worth buying it.

Does anybody have a parachute? idk if i spelled that right, but does anyone know if it really works?

also i think im going to ask for a nice pair of turf shoes to train in for christmas

From what i understand a parachute isn't all that great. I found a few sites that had trained 2 sets of runners one with and one without. After 3 months or whatever the guys with the parachute dropped .56 off their time average and the ones without dropped .54 enough of a difference that it could have just been the athletes that made the difference.
