It's a little difficult writing a review for something as simple as this, but I have to say I am impressed with another high quality product from Reese. I replaced an old Reese 2" steel ball with this carbon forged product. This carbon forged ball is beefier than the old one which gives me the confidence I need when towing my boat or utility trailer. I'm speculating, but I feel comfortable this doing it's thing while I'm driving. You will need a 1 1/2" wrench to get the nut off.

This 2" trailer ball is a good purchase. It's not the highest capacity trailer ball, but at the same time not the cheapest or most expensive. It's hex-head interlock top lets you buy an inter-lock insert and makes tightening it down a little easier if the ball/shank tries to turn. With an inter-lock insert the top sits into its hex-shape slot and that keeps you from having to put a wrench on your ball, which risks knicking it and making rough edges to catch your hand on.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NHpro One Strong Hitch Ball
I have been towing small and medium size trailers for over 10 years and always depend on a solid hitch and ball to connect my trailer to. This carbon forged ball puts all others to shame in terms of strength and toughness. I like the fact that just a little grease stays put for a while and remains useful for many hook-ups on and off the truck. I would recommend using quality components for your trailer to connect to, winter , spring, summer, and fall.
This carbon forged hitch ball is top quality.

Replaced my old rusty hitch ball with this. So far the finish is holding up to the elements. Haven't had a chance to hook a trailer up to it just yet, so no comment on how well the finish will hold up.
The bottom nut is the standard 1-1/2" size. If you have a big enough wrench, you can fit it around the hexagonal base. I didn't have one, but I was installing the step at the same time, which prevented it from turning while I torqued it down.

I love this and hope that it delivers as promised. The color is almost black and stainless steel which I look forward to seeing NOT rust. It assembled quickly and easily to the hitch bar. I am anxiously awaiting being able to use it soon and put it to the test. It looks and feels great. I actually paired it with the matching carbon forged hitch bar.

Not a whole lot you can usually say about a hitch ball, except does it tow or doesn't it, but this is a very good quality hitch for the price. 2" ball with a 2" shank and easy to install, with only a big enough wrench needed. Ball also matches my truck with the dark gray color. This ball hitch has a 7,500 pound tow capacity, which is excellent for the middle of the road, economical hitch that it is. Would highly recommend this if you're in the market for a hitch ball.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by farmgirl95602 Scratch the ball with a pipe wrench is gone.
Why hasn't someone thought of this before?
To hold on to the ball you have to use a pipe wrench. The problem with that is that the pipe wrench will dig into the ball making gouge marks that will wear on the hitch. So you are out there after putting the ball on another vehicle filing the gouge marks to make it smooth again. Of course, where you filed it will never be round again.
The only problem is that if you turn the wrench on the ball part and not the nut part, you could scratch up the paint where you mount the ball because the the top part sits to close to where you mount.
