There is a saying about camera that goes like this, The Best Camera is the One That is With You. Similar to that, the best football for freestyling is the one you have with you.
A master of this art can do amazing things with just regular cheap football.
But if you are planning to focus on freestyle in long-term, then choosing the right football that matches your need is very important.
Football that you choose for freestyle should be; exactly round(Sphericity & shape retention), it should have right bounce and preferably soft touch feel.
Freestyle footballs in Premium budget
Top end premium footballs are really good in shape retention & bounce. Most of them also have smooth surface suitable for grass ground.
That is why good match footballs are also good for freestyling. So it is easy to choose the best freestyle football if budget is not a problem.
Affordable footballs for freestyle
But when we come down to lower price range, it becomes more and more difficult to choose good football for freestyle.
In my opinion, to get the optimal conditions for freestyle. We have to avoid balls made for hard ground(hard rubber/synthetic rubber football), machine stitched & too heavy ones.
