  1. What makes the Tarmak R500 and its Magic Jam so special?
    The Tarmak R500 basketball is one of a kind. Some balls are slippery, have a terrible bounce and can't be repaired. We wanted to offer a solution In addition to its reinforced covering, this ball contains a green gel made of rubber microparticles that get sucked into holes to not only fill, but to also reinforce these areas. This keeps air from leaking out so you can keep playing. We called this gel Magic Jam.
  2. Is the R500 really puncture-proof?
    The Tarmak R500 ball won't go flat for up to 10 punctures of 2 mm in diameter. If you find a hole, bounce the ball at least 10 times. This causes the Magic Jam to move around and fill in the hole before hardening on contact with air. If the ball ever loses too much pressure, remember to reinflate it (to 0.62 bar for the perfect bounce).
  3. What makes the R500 so grippy?
    Having a good grip is essential in basketball. We drew inspiration from something else that requires excellent grip: tyres. The R500 Tarmak basketball comes with a rubber covering that makes it durable and exceptionally grippy. Its sculpted, tyre-inspired panels alternate with panels in thick, basketball pebbling that makes gripping this ball exceptionally easy.
  4. What ball size to choose?
    The ball size depends on the player's age and gender. Size 1: From ages 2 and up Size 3 to size 5: Girls or boys ages 4 to 6 / Baby basket under 7 age group (depending on levels and clubs) Size 5: Boys and girls ages 7 to 10 / Under 9 and under 11 age groups Size 6: Boys ages 11 and 12 / Under 13 age group Size 6: Girls - Women of all ages over 11 Size 7: Boys - Men of all ages over 13
  5. What ball should you use?
    If you want a very durable ball, go for a rubber ball. If you want a ball with a good feel, leather or synthetic are what you need.
  6. How much should you inflate your basketball?
    A basketball that is overinflated or underinflated doesn't give you the best game experience. The recommended pressure is clearly marked on the ball by the manufacturer. Ideally, you should use a pump with a pressure gauge so that you can be more precise. At Tarmak, we recommend a pressure of 0.62 bar. Enjoy your match!
  7. What height basket should you choose?
    The official height of a basketball basket is 3.05m (rim height). If you want a basketball basket for your child, you need something that will grow with them. For younger kids there isn't an official height so you can choose whatever suits them best. Up to the age of 10, club baskets are set at 2.60m. After the age of 10, both girls and boys play with 3.05m baskets
