    Keep wrapping rubber bands tightly all around the ball, until you cannot see it. Once you completed this step, throw the ball down to check out how much it can bounce or change its directions. You have to be careful, if you do not wrap it tightly the ball will not bounce perfectly. Start wrapping rubber bands again and maintain the balance in it. Do not stuff more rubber bands on one side, it will cause balancing issues when you spin or bounce the ball.
