1. Leather Footballs
Leather footballs are the highest grade footballs and are typically used in game and practice play. Many of the leather footballs are made with a tanning process that makes the ball tacky, so it is easier to grip, particularly when wet. Some leather footballs are also made to resist absorbing moisture, so they can be used in all weather conditions. Leather footballs that are not specified as water proof or water resistant should not be used in wet conditions, as the ball can absorb water becoming heavier and harder to grip. Leather footballs are only intended for use on grass or turf surfaces.
2. Composite Footballs
Composite or composite leather footballs are made from synthetic leather. These balls tend to cost less than leather footballs. Composite footballs may be used in game or practice situations and are great recreational use. Composite footballs look and feel like leather, but tend to resist moisture better than real leather. They are also often easier to grip, because the composite material usually has more texture. Some composite leather balls have enhanced the grip of the ball even more by making the cover tacky and/or softer. Composite leather footballs tend to be more durable than leather footballs. However, like leather footballs, these balls are generally intended for use on grass or turf surfaces.
Yes, the composite leather gives you a better grip for ball handlers and grips better for quarterbacks.
A composite football is one that is constructed of composite leather. Composite leather is laminated leather that is glued to a backing.

The WAVE has grooves on the leather and the regular basketball is smooth on the leather.
The basketball is made of an outer coating surrounding an inner rubber bladder. The leather outside is normally on an indoor-only ball and is easily ruined if used outside. There are indoor/outdoor composite balls that are designed for recreational use.
A leather basketball is better than a rubber ball but if your playing outside the ground ruins the leather so a rubber ball is better when you are playing outside
