Just curious just what ball is the better football.. I own both and i find the sherrin a little longer and sharper in shape as for the Burley its a more rounded ball and seems to be better in wet weather.. The AFL prefer Sherrin but the WAFL prefer Burley.. Both around the same price. So who thinks which ball is actually a better ball ?

Pained me, as a West Australian, to select Sherrin. But I'm cool with using a Burley. Basically all levels of football use the Burley exclusively, so I'd like to think I'm experienced with both. The Burley floats a little more and is slightly rounder, but it's negligible. For the most part, you can barely notice it.

Do they still make Fawkners? I used to have one as a kid.
Even though Im a Victorian I quite liked Faulkners, they had much pointier (not as round) ends and the kicks seemed a lot more accurate when you got the right spots. The only downside was if you got a lot of the ball you'd have sore feet at the end of the game :p :p

The Chessons were good as well, though a little on the heavy side, have never kicked a Burley though....

what ever happened to the Ross Faulkner footys?

Do they still make them?
They used to use them in the old VFA, nice balls for kicking a torp bit I found them too pointy on the ends, they used to hurt my feet.

I played 2 years using Burleys, didn't like them at all, so it Sherrins for me. I had a Lyrebird footy as a kid and loved it, Kookaburra weren't bad either.

Chesson for mine as a kid, lighter and better shape than a Burley.
