I've owned the MVA200 for a few months now. I think it's a great ball, and it performs as specified. The reason for only giving it 3 stars is that no one else wants to play with it. I play league volleyball two nights a week, and this ball always ends up sitting the bench. The biggest complaint people have, is when they pick it up to inspect it. They say it feels slippery. The synthetic cover doesn't compare to leather, and does have a bit of a slippery feel. I should note that I've never noticed it feeling slippery while passing, setting, or hitting. I've also heard them say it's too hard / heavy / small. However, quick comparison to other quality balls says otherwise. I love playing with this ball, but can't fully recommend it.
It was a bigger than I expected it to be but all in all a great product and I've definitely enjoyed it
I've had my eye on Timbuk2 bags forever, but hesitated because of the price. This was perfect - I didn't get to design it myself like you can on the Timbuk2 web site, but really liked the style of the Confetti design and the price was right, so I figured I'd try it out. I was pleasantly surprised when it arrived; it lives up to every quality expectation for a higher end bag like this, so well constructed (considering that I bought it to replace a poorly made work-issued laptop bag that had frayed straps in just a couple of months), excellent style and attention to detail. It has pockets and dividers for everything you could possibly want to carry and the medium size perfectly fits my laptop (Dell 15"), Kindle HD, notebook, and odds and ends that used to live in my purse. Highly recommend!
I live in the high desert, we normally do not get fleas. We purchased some bark at a local store that actually had bugs and fleas and we didn't know it. Until my dog was laying in the bark and came in with fleas. I sprayed him and my house with this and VOILA! Fleas were totally gone. This stuff is the best! This was last year and the fleas haven't' come back. I keep this under the sink in case something else happens. Like I said, I live in High desert, so if the fleas do not come back other bugs will. Don't ask me, but I love the smell. It's weird, but I love the smell.
