Differences between Spikeball and Spikeball ProRoughly speaking, the Spikeball Pro Set* is standardized and suitable for competitions. The normal set* is intended for hobby use. Therefore, the accessories and also the design of the two Spikeball versions differ.
Stability / ProcessingThe Spikeball Pro set is a little thicker overall and therefore more stable. This refers to the ring and the feet from the net.
The feet of the Spikeball Pro set have two small tips on the bottom. These are used to make the net stand more solid and stable on the ground.
All in all the normal Spikeball set is a bit more unstable, but not unusable.
BallsThe balls of the two variants also differ. The normal spike ball is only yellow. The ball from the Spikball Pro Set still has the logo painted in black. So you can see the rotation of the ball better.
The Spikeball Pro set also contains a ball pump and a mould to get the right size of the ball when inflated. You do not have this in the normal Spikeball set.
In the number you get 3 balls with both sets.
BagThe pockets of the two variants also differ significantly. With the normal Spikeball set you get a relatively simple bag. The carrying straps are made of thin and simple cords.
With the Spikeball Pro set you get a bag with real straps. So you get a bag with a bit more comfort. The material of the bag is also a bit thicker and of higher quality.
Throwing behaviourWhen thrown, the Spikeball Pro Set remains much more stable than the normal version. The net is also a little tighter than the normal Spikeball Pro Set.
Which Spikeball Set is better?Of course it depends on your skills. For beginners, the normal Spikeball Set* is definitely sufficient. Even if you have a lot of experience you will have a lot of fun with the normal set. With the normal set you will save a good amount of money.
The big advantage of the Spikeball Pro Set* is the higher quality and better stability from the net. You also get a pump for the balls with a mould for the right size. The balls also have a logo printed on them, which shows you the spin of the ball when you throw it. However, you have to reach a little deeper into your pocket for this.
My recommendation for you is the normal Spikeball Set*, as it is a good deal cheaper to buy.
