    My favorite football - 6/4/2014
    By: from CT

    I love 1) footballs 2) Orvis and 3) bison so this was an easy purchase. The craftsmanship is superb. The leather is strong and feels great when you throw and catch. This will easily become your favorite football. I would confidently recommend it to anyone.

    Impressive - 3/12/2014
    By: from Chicago

    This ball makes me wonder why anyone uses pigskin when we could have something as uniquely American as bison. I'm not a football expert, but this is beautiful. The bison mark is artistically pleasing and the smell is incredible. It's exceptionally well made. I measured the leather at 5mm thick at the lace holes to reach the inner inflatable, which looks like some kind of natural fiber kevlar-eske basket-weave material. If you're wondering, the other side reads "Authentic American Bison" branded in black around the air hole. Looks like this may have been made by Leatherhead sports special / exclusively for Orvis, along with the bison lemon ball. Kudos to Orvis for going with bison. I can't imagine a finer, more impressive, football.

    great memories - 1/28/2014

    When you hold this football it brings you back to yesteryear and realize why they did pass much in those days.That is why I purchased for the memories of years past and how the game has changed since then.

    Very very cool - 1/7/2014
    By: from Charlotte NC

    This is a very good way to spend $98. I'd be willing to bet $98 that you won't be disappointed. I got this as a xmas gift in 2013 from my father-in-law. I opened the gift and proceeded to keep it next to me, holding it, smelling it, gripping it, rubbing it and ultimatley sleeping with it. I know .. strange ... but it's actually that cool of a ball... very unique. I know it's going to be hard for me to play with it with my son but I think it will make it even more unique with some good old scuffs on it. Great Gift Idea!

    I've wanted this football for two years. I stands up to two sons-in -law and one son and myself. It is one tough ball for the play yard. Thanks for offering something you can't get at the big box sports merchants!

    Family-room Fun - 12/10/2013
    By: from Orcutt, Ca.

    Bought the Bison Ball three years ago. And, it's proven to be an amazing object lesson for our six grandsons , (I.e.) History of the American West ... What's a ball bladder ... How to throw a spirolll ... Etc. All of which was conduced by passing a carefully deflated Bison Ball from one grand-son to another while in our Family-room ~~~

    Football in catalog had lighter colored laces, lighter laces sort of punctuate football's character...just sayin...
