Flight Stability Technology

Molten FLISTATEC Volleyball is an FIVB approved ball which features special Flight Stability Technology. The Flight Stability Technology enables enhanced grip, control, and consistency during play by optimizing the air-current around the ball. FLISTATEC significantly reduced the irregular flight patterns of the ball. Through FLISTATEC, Molten was able to achieve a stabilized flight path by controlling the air disturbance around the ball through the placement of raised hexagon shaped designs on the surface of the ball.

Durable Construction

Another great feature is the composite leather with a micro-soft layer which ensures that the synthetic material is as soft as a genuine leather ball. This feature is the reason behind the outstanding durability, soft touch texture and superb consistency of the ball. The softer microfiber layer enables the players to achieve more accurate and firmer overhand passes. In addition, the composite leather with micro-soft layer also absorbs perspiration to keep the surface dry. The new surface and design features also increase the grip, allowing the server more control.

Molten FLISTATEC Volleyball’s composite leather cover fuses with a thread-woven lower layer for a better feel and ultimate durability. A secure Nylon wound layer is also added so that this thread-woven construction achieves an ideal soft touch. Another great feature is the dual-layer laminated butyl bladder with extremely low air-permeability that prevents leakage.

Improved Visibility

Molten FLISTATEC Volleyball features a tricolor design of white, red and blue. These colors improve visibility for players of all abilities. The three streamlined panels on each side of the ball significantly improve the visibility of the ball in any environment. Consequently, the streamline panels of a FLISTATEC volleyball also visually creates a smoother rotating motion.


Molten FLISTATEC Volleyball is shipped deflated. The reason given by the manufacturer is that the air pressure can damage the ball during shipping. The manufacturer also points out that putting air inside the ball will consider the ball as used.


  • Great ball, amazing grip and very stable in the air.
  • At first, the ball will be pretty hard but the more you play with it, the softer and more rubbery it will feel.
  • The ball can hold air for a long period of time.
  • The ball responds well to passing and hitting.


  • The ball may come with permanent creases, due to the packaging method.
  • The package does not come with a pump.
  • It is a bit pricey.

Overall, the Molten FLISTATEC Volleyball offers consistency, exceptional performance, improved control, increased visibility, and enhanced flight stability for more accurate passing and sets. If you’re looking for a good lightweight, soft composite leather ball that is easy to control and has a great grip – then this is the perfect ball for you.
