A customer review of our Tossaball Hybrid Ultra Suede 2.55″ juggle balls.

I wanted to try these out after owning the 2.45 soft version of these. They are firm, which if you are on a stage where you drop frequently they might tend to roll more than the 2.45″ soft juggle balls. Also if they collide they go flying. If you’re a beginner or are learning new tricks or numbers I’d recommend the soft. If you already got your pattern and catches down good these are nice. They stay nice and round and are a great size. The hybrid technology also is not a gimmick it really works as advertised. They have a very predictable flight path, and don’t wobble if they spin. I wash these in the washing machine like the other Flying Clipper balls I own. Let them dry by air or throw them in the dryer for a cycle and they come out as good as new.

Headline: Best prop ever, period

Review: I recently received a set of the Phat Tyre Pro 70s…this must be what it’s like to eat filet mignon for the first time after a lifetime of Big Macs. I haven’t been able to put them down. I never realized how much I had been compromising with my juggling props until I held this bag in my hand; perfectly sized, perfectly weighted, buttery soft feel, eminently catchable, eye-catchingly visual, even the sound is great (almost silent, as opposed to the loud swish of the plastic resin in my previous set of under filled bags). They are very squishy, but they somehow still feel structured and substantial, and maintain a very round shape in flight. Tight patterns are a breeze because throws are so predictable; I’ve never juggled any bag where such precision was possible, let alone an under filled one. Nothing is perfect, though, right? Okay, fine…they smell like tires. It’s faint, and it doesn’t bother me, but if the smell of your props is an issue, there you go. The smell might lessen after going through the wash anyway; I don’t know. Another possible issue (and I stress possible, because it might not be a problem) is whether the filling will eventually leak through the seams; but the craftsmanship of these things is fantastic, and I trust Jim has done his R. and D., so I doubt it. In fact, the only real problem with these might be the fact that all of my other props are going to be seriously neglected from now on. I’m curious about the 90% fill version, I might get a set of those too. If you like under filled bags, do yourself a favor and get a set of these immediately. If you don’t like under filled bags, these will almost certainly change your mind. My bottom line: these are my favorite prop ever. It’s shocking that they are so affordable compared to some other bags on the market, so wake up and get a set now, before Jim realizes his mistake and starts charging what they are worth.

Note from Flying Clipper: The slight rubber smell does dissipate after one or two machine washings.

Review: I’ve been juggling for a long time, and always was looking for that perfect juggling ball. These are amazing juggling balls.  I’ve ordered 2 sets of 6 already and might get some more. These feel unreal so soft, and squishy like a big marshmallow. They juggle so nice, and feel so balanced in the air. Washing these is a breeze. You may want to at first to get the rubber smell out. i just throw them in the washer machine with other stuff and they come out perfect… I found it better than hand washing. You cant go wrong with flying clippers balls no matter what kind you get. Their customer service is top notch too if you did have a problem. If your wondering if you should get these..you wont regret them! Geoff  Holdridgephatty_32_group_pouch (2)

best beanbags   best beanbags

i can strongly recommend this ball for any beanbag users.

followings are not pro and cons, but just matter of preference.

the outer material does not stretch so much as other leather beanbags such as SportCo sports beanbags.
and the inner material is bigger than birdseed used in normal vinyl beanbags.

the ultra suede gets dirty a little too easily, but the balls are machine washable.

thanks to 12 panels, it keeps the round shape well, but still easy to stall.
it is roughly as soft as well-used SportCo beanbags from the beginning.

personally I prefer large size, so this 3 inches ball is nice.
white colour, which i ordered, is now out of production. what a pity!

A NOTE FROM JIM: MORE COLORS INCLUDING WHITE ARE ON THE WAY.

Testimonial text from Paul Vorvick

10/23/13 Hi Jim,

 

I was kicking my Juice yesterday and realized that it was the very same bag that Tricia George and I used to set a Guinness World Record with in 2006: http://www.guinnessworldrecords.com/world-records/5000/most-consecutive-footbag-kicks-in-ten-minutes-doubles-

I continue to be impressed with the variety of designs and quality of products you bring to the world. Keep up the good work! ~Paul Vorvick, Flying Clipper Fan #1

A great juggling bag development  A great juggling bag development

A great bag that works very well for me. just the right size for working on 5 or 6. Very soft on the hands but maintains that round look in the air due to the 14 panel design. surprisingly easy on the hands compared to all other props I have tried. Since the outside of the bag is soft some slight rub collisions can be recovered without losing a pattern completely. I strongly recommend this bag. Shawn S — Shawn S

This review came up on our Rave Reviews section of the site and we thought we’d share it:

Dirtbag footbags
I have restarted my interest in kicking footbags after a decades long absence and have purchased lots of footbags in the past few months. I love these Dirtbag bags for how well they stall and kick in general. The Mighty Mite is great for just kicking for consecutives as it is easy to control and stall while the larger Phat Tyre bag will stall on the end of a finger. All I need to do is get my foot in the general vicinity of the bag and it will stall for me. These bags are great for control and a long and invigorating aerobic workout.

–John Read

 The reviews are in….

And it’s official! The Phat Tyre 32-Panel Juggling Ball is a huge hit with our loyal fans and new customers alike! This could be the most unique and best juggling prop we’ve ever created and our fans agree!

 

Best things I’ve thrown in the air yet!  Best things I've thrown in the air yet!

These are so much better than my old “learn to juggle” bean bags it’s silly. Having been stuck at 3 ball cascades for years, I’m already doing Mills Mess and 4 ball fountains fairly easily. They’re soft, don’t roll at all and are a joy to juggle. I can’t wait to get above 5 so I can order some more!

Just a Quickie

We got another short and sweet review from one of our returning customers. We love our customers and we really love their reviews! Check it out:

Ummmmm……you make the most amazing footbags in the world and cant wait to try your new design because my black and white hybrid that i got when it first came out finally lost all its sand after years of torture, but its still good as a pellet hack. So just wanted to let you know that I recommend your footbags to everyone i know and to keep up the amazing work!
