Beware of fakes & old models!

Before we even start, i would like to get your attention to the fact that, there is few different versions of this volleyball in the online market.

To be honest, i don’t even know whether theses are past versions(this actually happens when brand upgrades its product but old versions are sill in the market) of the original volleyballs from Nivia itself or outright fake counterfeit.

Look at the following 2 images and see 3 different ones.

Fake Nivia volleyball one Ffake Nivia volleyball two Origninal nivia strike volleyball

Offer link to the original products - Amazon offer, Flipkart

Look at the difference between original and fakes.

As i mentioned earlier - i am not completely sure, but the image you can see on the official website is the real one.

It is not stitched and there is not weird logo in there. So anyway even if they are from Nivia, buy the latest model for better quality and value for money. And be careful when buying.
