I initially gave the new Fuse ball a glowing review. The touch, feel and reliability in the bounce is a pleasure to play with. However, after a month of play it is quite apparent the Fuse is significantly less durable than previous Onix Pure II. Out of 6 balls in rotation, 3 broke in 12 sessions of play. With the Pure II, I never had a ball break. Lots of grumbling from others who have experienced the same thing. Be aware!
