76.2mm Orange Translucent Acrylic Contact Ball
These 76.2mm (3") orange, translucent acrylic contact juggling balls are made to a very high standard. The colored pigment is perfectly diffused throughout the ball in order to maintain the illusion of the ball floating around, not rolling.
Colored acrylic contact balls let slightly more light through than their polycarbonate counterparts meaning they look even better in the sunshine or under stage lights and this subtle difference is reflected in the price.
Each one of these balls comes with a FREE padded drawstring bag. Made from a tough canvas outer and a soft fleece inner lining, these bags will help to keep your balls organized and protected.
WHAT SIZE TO CHOOSE
SINGLE BALL CONTACT JUGGLING: As a general rule, the smaller the contact ball, the smaller the contact surface area and therefore the harder it is to control. Similarly, the larger the ball, the easier it is to balance. So for single ball contact juggling a larger ball is generally preferred - anything from a 76.2mm ball upwards, depending on personal preference.
MULTI-BALL CONTACT JUGGLING: If you are interested in manipulating any more than two balls, then the above rule is inversed: the smaller the ball, the easier it is to control multiples of them. We would not recommend going for anything larger than a 76.2mm ball, especially if you are learning multiball contact juggling. The 65mm and 70mm balls are the most popular for multi ball, but again, exactly what size to choose comes down to personal preference and the size of your hands.
As you may have noticed, the 76.2mm ball is a good all-rounder; it's big enough to learn on and light enough for precise movements. The 76.2mm ball can be used as a single ball or in multiball work, but learning to palm spin with any more than two 76.2mm balls in one hand starts to become awkward.
