The good people at Vevo Sports sent me a package of their Ballspike durable, flexible, bendable inflation needles to try out.  The days of bending and breaking your metal inflation needles are over.

Vevo’s Ballspike bendable inflation needles are high quality and easy to use.  They’re the standard size that’ll fit any ball pump you own.  Feel free to throw out that bent metal needle you likely have sitting in your soccer bag and replace it with one of these multicolored durable, flexible, bendable Ballspike inflation needles.  At $12.99 for a 5 pack they’re a bit pricey, but they’ll last seemingly forever.

I tried bending the Ballspike needle every which way, and it would always return back to its original form.  Try doing this with a metal needle and it’ll either snap in half, or stay bent and crooked (aka useless) forever.

They inflate just about any ball that takes a standard needle with ease.  They fit right into my travel pump, and have found a permanent place in my soccer bag.  If you’re an avid player like myself, you know you’ve always got to keep a pump on deck if you don’t want your ball to run flat when you take it out to play.

If you’re in the market for some new inflation needles, head over to and pick up a set of these.  You won’t regret it.  They offer a multitude of products, including pumps and smaller (or larger) quantities of the Ballspike inflation needles.  They even offer a fishbowl size containing 100 packages of 2 pack Ballspikes if you really never want to run out of inflation needles, but I feel like a 3 or 5 pack will do just fine for most sports enthusiasts.
