Adidas Tango Durlast is the beginning of a whole series of Adidas balls that will be presented for each World Championship. The design of this ball was so successful that it was used for the next 20 years. Moreover, the Adidas engineers created the Adidas Tango 2012 ball, which was very similar to this ball.
Adidas Tango Durlast is a tight, bouncing ball made of genuine leather. The name of the ball is a tribute to Argentine traditions. As you know, Argentinean musicians and choreographers have created the world famous tango dance. The color scheme of this is a great choice for those times. Watching a football match on black and white TV is most comfortable if the match is played with a contrasting black and white ball.
Like all balls of that time, Adidas Tango Durlast has flaws. Among them, football players note a quick wetting and a change in aerodynamic characteristics in the event of a game in rainy weather.
