Mikasa Glow in the Dark VolleyballSports brand Mikasa shows it’s not above a gimmick with this glow in the dark volleyball.

The manufacturer claims this ball allows you to enjoy a game of beach volleyball any time, during the day or night. It all sounds good in theory, but sadly this retro styled ball doesn't live up to that hype. Many customers complain the glowing effect lasts for only a few minutes. Some shoppers say that if it's exposed to plenty of light before play it could last as long as 15 or 20 minutes, but that's still not long enough to really enjoy a good match.

However, Mikasa has a reputation for creating quality volleyballs, so the ball itself is quite sound. It's of regulation size and weight unlike so many glow in the dark balls on the market. Its soft stitched cover shouldn't hurt your hand too much when you spike or serve, and its synthetic leather should survive several summers of serious play.

And for a mere $17.99, perhaps that quality is the best we can hope for. That's not a lot to pay for any volleyball, whether it glows or not. Just don't expect it to illuminate any night time tournaments.
