Readers Cricket balls
« on: December 05, 2017, 12:19:14 AM »

Hi all, looking for some feedback on some Readers Cricket balls,

in Particular the County Supreme ball.
Looking to get them as a training ball for private coaching, what are they like??

Cheers

Used to use readers balls in most leagues in Scotland, really liked them. Not entirely sure what model they were but they held up well and if looked after would still swing after 50 overs.

Used readers balls for years in the Kent league and were always decent balls, lasted well and were not shy of swinging about later in an innings, also seem to keep there shape very well. I have loads of old Readers match balls as my net bowling balls as trust them to be used against my bats in the nets

Ill check which readers balls we used in the league. They were a bit hit and miss, you could get one that was superb and be in good condition after 45 overs and others that would look like a dogs ball after 10! This on the same track, same conditions and similar scores

Our league switched to them from dukes this year and I will echo the above with some were ok and most were terrible and weren't at all durable.
