New Ball Improves Stability

I've got some new balls I'm doing a product review for at the end of the month. They are a bit smaller and heavier than what I've been using for the last couple of years, and that has turned out to be a great benefit for my 5b juggling.

I've been able to have a much more stable 5b cascade out of which to do tricks. One such trick I've been hitting with frequency this afternoon was 75751.

After such a long time (4 years) of feeling stagnant in my 5b progress, I am finally feeling confident. The timing couldn't be any better... Spring is just around the corner and I will be juggling outdoors a lot.

Keep an eye out for the product review sometime in early March.

I am glad that your found some equipment that makes you happy. That is not always easy to do with any endeavor. I wish that I knew how to juggle....I have received some very basic lessons....but I don't know how to really do it. This is on my list of activities for "someday."

Hey thanks for the comment.

I guess learning to juggle depends on how much time you can devote to practice, motivation, and resources for learning. If you can cover the first two requirements I can provide you with some resources.

Wildcats Jugglers Tutorial - This is an excellent video tutorial. Covers all the basics. Widely acclaimed to be the best internet tutorial.

Rec.juggling - This is a Google Group for jugglers. You can find a ton of information here directly through searching the archives or posting a question.

Good luck!

Hello, I'm from GA and have been juggling for the last ten years or so. I'm touring Korea for a few months and don't know anyone else is able to juggle. I brought my devilstick, fire devilstick, torches, clubs, and a lot of juggling balls. I would really love to juggle while I'm here and was wondering if you could tell me how to find some other jugglers. thanks, Josh

You could send me an email at eddie_provencherathotmail.com.no.spam.

I'd be happy to put you in contact with the handful of jugglers I have met during my 16 months in Korea.
