As far as all round light up balls for dogs to chase, we find this one is the best. We literally have bought one a week for the last few weeks as we take our dogs for runs at night and the light up function on the ball is very useful. We do find though the balls are not very durable and with the throwing and handling of the ball, the mechanism fails after just a few outings. However the blue colour and ball make up results in a great ball to use during the day at the dog park anyway for a ball that doesnt light up at night but is easy to find during the day in any oval or dog park. I think its a great ball for any dog that likes chasing the ball but you wont get a long use of the light up function.
