You've seen this ball everywhere, its track record gives it credibility. I love this ball. I have been playing water polo for two years and I am pretty well versed at the sport. Few balls compare to Mikasa's. I have had it for a month and used it moderately. Here's the long and short:
-Best grip out there. No other company has the same ridges that Mikasa does.
-Portable (repeated inflation and deflation, as well as temperature change, has no apparent effect on the ball yet).
-Durable. I spilled shampoo and conditioner on it and used it in a salt water pool and a hot tub and it still has no problems.
-Grip tends to degrade. This is, of course, to be expected with all water polo balls. However, from what I've experienced, Mikasa balls tend to lose grip due to their reliance on the ridges while Báden balls have a grippier rubber instead. However, Mikasa seems to have changed their design in the last 5 years, so I would no prefer them over any other brand.
-Slight residue when brand new. No big deal, just rinse it off or get it wet.
Like most other sports balls, water polo balls are composed of an inflatable rubber bladder surrounded by the skin. If you deflate this ball, make sure you don't poke a hole through the other side when re-inflating.
