Who here uses Russian Balls? I was a Russian Hater for quite sometime but I'm becoming a huge fan of them. I've made probably 6 or so sets of them over the past year out of everything from playpit balls to dog toys. Right now my main balls are the Plug & Play Russians by Play.
What are your favorite shells for Russians? If you're using playpit Russians which brand of playpit balls are you using? The ones that I got from Walmart were total crap.

P.S. Morphine, dude, I wish I'd progressed half as quickly as you. Awesome work dude.

I used russians as my mains for about a month of that progression and only just switched out to some homemade bean bags a few days ago.
I just used cheapy playpit balls from Kmart, with salt as filling, and they were decent but I'd prefer bigger ones- like the plug and play ones- but I don't want to really spend money on juggling balls for a while as I've already got so many different types to work with.
My most recently made bags are made in the 6 panel style sportco balls are made but I used denim as the material and birdseed filling. They're actually pretty good though, they feel heaps better for practicing 5b than russians, though the russians are just so good for showers and well everything really :p.
But I've decided I'll stick to my new beanbags for a month or so and see how they are, then see if I want to keep using them or move back to russians :p.

OK I guess

I can do 3 balls and tons of tricks, but then 4 balls are shaky and I drop like 1 in 25... no tricks for 4.

Just thought I'd post this review of the soon to be released 32-panel Tossaball juggling balls from www.flyingclipper.com

I had a ton of fun making the review and these props are amazing.

Yeah, I juggle. I can do 3, 4, and 5, plus a buch of tricks with all of them.
I can juggle two balls and a cube while solving the cube, but I have only done that once.

Juggling?

I have noticed that many cubers can juggle, including Macky and Feliks. How many balls, and is it a main hobby?




EDIT: I cannot juggle any more than 1 ball.

So what you mean is you play catch with yourself. I can do basic juggling (3 balls), but the main style I like is contact. The concept of isolations is so cool to me..

Eva, the person in that video is the person who posted in this thread 3 posts before yours. It's very impressive.

Here's my latest juggling video, which is focused on difficult balancing tricks. If the YouTube link doesn't work then try the link underneath.
