The CFL ball IS NOT bigger. This is a myth. The CFL ball only looks fatter because of the white stripes. I own a regulation NFL ball and have placed it next to a CFL ball -- and the dimensions are identical.

In years gone by, I played amateur football in two different leagues using CFL and NFL rules respectively. When I quarterbacked, the official NFL ball was easier to grip and I could throw forward passes farther downfield. The CFL ball was easier to punt and would invariably travel farther than the NFL sphere. I don't know about actual measurements of the respective fully-inflated balls, but I can say without any reservation that the balls were not identical and performed differently.

Is CFL the bigger ball?

Yes it is the same length but the NFL ball is slightly narrower. Its the same as an NCAA ball. I find it harder to throw but I played C and NT so I can't to begin with! Harder to longsnap and from what I heard a little easier to kick as there is more to make contact with.
