From the desk of Jim Fitzgerald President and co-founder of Flying Clipper, est. 1983:
Being a craftsman now for more than 30 years has given me ample time to think up new ideas for expanding the horizons in the art of juggle ball design and concept. Lets face it, after hand sewing more than 75,000 footbags and juggle balls one cannot but help to fall face first into some good ideas now and then. :=) Combining a second and arguably a more valuable asset which is listening to jugglers for their feedback has enabled Flying Clipper to thrive in the midst of a very crowded internet marketplace. Our innovation is driven on improving each juggle ball model according to the feedback we receive from our juggling friends.
If you have never seen our products let me tell you this: Every juggle ball or footbag we produce is made from our own designs. (many of our designs are the most copied in the industry). Every juggle ball we produce is 100% hand made and completely washable. We use recycled materials in many of our models in the form of the filler materials we use which include recycled plastic pellets, crushed rock and ground up recycled tire rubber. From our Tossaball Hybrid series of balls to our newest rubber filled Phat Tyre series, we make a juggle ball that is just right for all types of juggling. We welcome ideas and feedback from our friends and value all relationships that come our way. When you purchase a product from us, you are not only getting a great washable hand made juggle ball, you are also promoting the inventors and we thank you.
