Inflatable Barre Ball

Hello,
I am looking for a recommendation for a ball for barre that is easy to reinflate...not one that is almost impossible to keep air in when it needs a refresh. Any suggestions?

Thanks

i own many different inflatable balls, including large stability balls - i've never encountered balls that lost their air quickly and when i had the occasional need to re-inflate, it was pretty quick and easy to do. they're all designed the same way.

all of the small pilates/barre balls were free in the various kits on the market, including 10MS, Barre3, Fluidity and Element Pilates.

my sons seem to "borrow" my inflated balls to play basketball in the house.

-A Gold's Gym purple core ball (9 inches)
-A blue playground ball (similar to the Fluidity or Ballet Physique ball)

This is my favorite too. I also have Suzanne's ball (SBF), it is a few inches smaller.
