Today, I will be discussing Slammo vs. Spikeball, all the differences, similarities, and what makes each product unique.

This game is very fun and can be played in two groups of two. The whole family can take turns playing this fun volleyball like game.

What is the Difference Between Spikeball and Slammo?

If we really want to understand the differences between these two very similar games, we will need to examine the features of each.

Quality of The Materials

Spikeball and Slammo are both made with a hard PVC material. The only difference is that the Spikeball game is actually made with a higher quality PVC material. So, when you use this game outdoors the quality of the Spikeball game with withstand more of the outside elements than the Slammo game.

Legs

The legs on the Spikeball set can be folded down to be put away for easy storage or even folded down flat to play the game on a flat surface. The Slammo sets legs cannot be adjusted so it will have to stay at the height that it is. The clips on both products work great but as I have stated above the Spikeball set seems higher quality.

Balls

Both sets come with the playing balls you need to play the game. When you hold one Spikeball ball in your hand and a slammo ball in the other you can instantly feel the difference between the two. The spikeballs are heavier, thicker, and they are just more durable.

The Slammo balls do have a better bounce when they bounce off the net. This is because they are lighter in weight. The Slammo set also comes with a practice ball that is bigger and great for younger people to learn how to play the game.

Community

The Spikeball community is very large and still growing today. Spikeball connects other players with their app they created for their users to always find someone to play a Spikeball game with. They have also developed an association for tournaments and events to play other players around the united states to earn prizes. Slammo, on the other hand, has nothing like this. If you are looking for someone to play against and you want to compete in a tournament, then Spikeball is the better choice.

Cost

When it comes down to the cost of the product you have some wiggle room if you are on a budget. Spikeball can tend to range higher priced than the cheaper Slammo sets. Now even though Spikeball is more expensive you need to keep in mind they were the first to get into the “Spike ball game” and they make their products with higher quality materials.

Slammo is cheaper by almost half of the Spikeball game. Slammo doesn’t use the highest quality materials and the balls are not as nice as Spikeball. Slammo is a cheap copy cat version of Spikeball. So, if you are looking for something that is cheap then the Slammo will be better suited for you.

What is Better Slammo or Spikeball?

In my personal opinion, I think Spikeball is better quality and a better-created game. The things you get with the game are far more superior quality than the Slammo set. I still think Slammo is a good product but it basically seems like a copied version of Spikeball.

Conclusion

As you can see there are some huge difference and similarities between the Slammo vs Spikeball game sets. My overall verdict is the Spikeball set because I personally feel that the overall quality and materials are far better than the Slammo. I still think if you have a lower budget than the Slammo is a great option. If you have any questions leave them down below and I look forward to talking to you.
