Sport Juggling Balls

This is my official (unsolicited) endorsement of the Sport Juggling Balls made by Sport Juggling Co.

I bought 7 all-white, 3 inch, 185g, Ultraleather balls in December. I've had them for about a month and I love them. Their size gives them great visibility and their weight gives them great control. The fact that they are filled with millet means they are squishy to the touch and the Ultraleather is "sticky" when your hands get warmed up from a lot of juggling. These features combine to make the best juggling ball I've ever used.

The only drawback to the balls I bought is their size. While it helps with visibility, it hinders my ability to collect 3-4 balls in my non-dominant hand. I am developing the skill of collecting these large balls, so it is only a temporary drawback. If however, for whatever reason I am unable to learn how to collect them gracefully, I will gladly purchase the smaller 2 3/4 inch, 140g balls.

The name of the lady who owns the company is Cheryl Sayers. She is a really nice lady.

Everyone has a different preference. I've seen an amazing juggler who used Russians balls. I prefer my current ball, the hybrid from Flying Clipper.
