I don’t go through juggling equipment very fast; every year or two I buy a new set of beanbags (usually from Dube or Todd Smith), and over time I just got used to that equipment and stopped trying different balls. That was until today, when I received a set of silicone juggling balls as a very generous gift.
These things are unbelievable. Just the little weight added on makes them perfect for my style of juggling because they allow me to move a little faster. The grip is also a nice upgrade as well, despite the fact you need to clean them to maintain it (it’s worth it).
Of course the property silicone balls are known for is how consistently they bounce, which is something I’m looking forward to playing with more. Bouncing probably won’t make it into my next video, but the new balls definitely will.
