What a great review from a great customer!

Best numbers balls EVER!  Best numbers balls EVER!

I have been juggling 5 and more balls since 1985 and got so frustrated with the lack of quality and the lack size/weight options available that I started making my own.

Not any more!

Never again will I spend hours of tedious sewing because I have finally found the perfect juggling balls. These beautifully crafted and durable suede balls are the perfect size and weight for numbers juggling. I’ve also tried the less full ones and they are great also, especially if you’re new to numbers juggling – I happen to like em nice and firm. And the price is incredible, I’ve spent 3 times that much for similar props that were ultimately disappointing.

The all-new, Tossaball Phat Tyre 32-Panel Juggle Ball is in a league of its own among juggling products. We released this amazing juggle ball last year and the response we’ve got from jugglers in all walks of their juggling career has been unanimous:

This ball is a winner!!

Take it from another satisfied customer that posted a review on our products page:

Very forgiving  Very forgiving

I am the world’s most pitiful 5-ball juggler. The Phat Tyre 32-panel bags are exactly what I needed! They float up into the air, and you can basically catch them with one fingertip and correct your pattern. Really, really nice. I’m getting many more throws in before my pattern totally falls apart, and can recover more easily when it goes slightly awry. I bet they’re even more amazing for actual good jugglers. Seriously, I love these. (They do smell like a tire store though, if you stuff them in your face and inhale deep. Which is kinda hokey and cool)

Love the size,weight, feel, and look of these bags, although they do have a slight Discount Tire store bouquet.

Just a couple of washes later and they smell fresh as daisies. I can barely put ‘em down, love ‘em…

5 Stars for the Dirtbag 42-Panel!

We just got a brand new customer review from a customer that recently purchased a Dirtbag 42-Panel footbag from the Flying Clipper Dirtbag Line-Up! This footbag measures 2.25″ in diameter, weighs in at 40-45 grams, and utilizes elongated, truncated hexagons and pentagons to form what we think is our most unusual footbag.

Check out what Shawn has to say about it too!

Fantastic!  Fantastic!

The product arrived quickly and looks fantastic. The guys at flying clipper do great work I recommend this product to everyone. — Shawn

High-number jugglers and multiplex jugglers will love this new juggle ball from the Flying Clipper!    

                                

The Tossaball Phat Tyre Speeder Juggle Ball is a handmade, washable, juggle ball made from excellent-grip, ultra suede and filled to about 70% volume. Because it is filled with ground-up, recycled, tire rubber, small-handed jugglers can easily fit five of these balls in one hand with no trouble!

We already have a happy customer!

“Great service & product! I received my order just 8 days after payment, paying only $5 extra for international shipping all the way to New Zealand! My exact colour preferences were not available, so sensible substitutes were made – with an extra 8th ball to compensate, PLUS a carry pouch! These speeder tossaballs are rather small, but are very nicely weighted and true, and the artificial suede feels great. Will be easier to practice, and with fewer collisions should help me progress to 5 balls. Thanks again!”

We get a lot of great reviews of our products from professional jugglers, and it always warms our hearts to know jugglers out there are getting the most possible use in the most extreme environments out of their Flying Clipper juggling props

Rhys Thomas is a juggler from Portland, OR. He recently got his hands on some of our Phat Tyre 32-Panel Juggling Balls and he had some absolutely fantastic words to share about them! Read here:

I’ve juggled Flying Clipper bags professionally for over 20 years. During this run of kinetic employment, I’ve put various Flying Clipper bags to the test of street shows, stage shows and festival shows. I’ve had Flying Clipper bags that have gotten wet, sat under heavy props, been run over (oops), stepped on by livestock, got teethed on by babies and all survived to be juggled another day.

On St. Lawrence Island, Alaska in February, just uphill from the frozen whale head on the beach, I set my bowling ball down and it cracked from being so cold and brittle. My fingers were stiff and the clubs inflicted pain with each catch, but my Flying Clipper Tossaball Hybrid bags stayed supple and soft as ever.

In Abu Dhabiit was 113 degrees Fahrenheit and oh so humid. My Flying Clipper Tossaball Phat Tyre bags performed beautifully even as they soaked up the sweat dripping down my arms.

The only problem I’ve had has been rats eating them during the late Fall when the cold drives the little nibblers into my studio. Imagine my delight when the Phat Tyre bags (which hold no seed and smell more rubbery than like yummy human sweat) survived unmolested this mouse season.

Tossaball Plush Puppy, Flying Clipper’s new hand and feet juggle ball, is getting Rave Reviews.

Peter Irish, the master of juggling, is raving all about this:

 “The Flying Clipper Plush Puppies are by far the best juggling balls on the market for hands and feet juggling. This is the ball I have been searching for for years. Once I got a hold of them, I immediately retired my old balls, and began using these full time. The require virtually no break-in, are a great consistency for stalls and body catches, yet they retain their roundness and don’t “pancake”. These balls are undoubtedly the best resource for any juggler who wants to integrate the hands and feet together in their juggling. The colors are some of the brightest and most beautiful of any juggling balls I’ve ever seen, which is so important for performing. I have used these balls in several shows and dozens of performances and have been completely satisfied. As well as all this, they are FUN to juggle, and have a feel like no other ball. I am grateful to Flying Clipper (and amazed) for creating a ball that exceeds my expectations for exactly what I do. I completely recommend these balls for any type of juggling, and especially for my specialty of juggling with the hands and the feet at the same time. Huge thanks to Flying Clipper!”

Here is another great review from another satisfied customer:

“OK, these beanbags are waaay nicer than I thought they would be! I broke my 5 ball endurance the first day I got them because they are so easy to juggle. I like the size and fabric because my hands do not get tired from grabbing them like a ball. They settle gently into my hand and have a beautiful throw. I got 4 rotations of 5 ball mills for the first time with these just yesterday. I’m getting more!”

–Robert Wood

Another great review of our new, customer-favorite juggling ball, the Phat Tyre 32 Panel:

 

Best Commercially Available Hybrids  Best Commercially Available Hybrids

The Tossaball Phat Tyres are the best commercially available beanbags for 4-limbed juggling on the planet. I’m not saying this lightly, because performing a combined footbag and juggling act is what I do for a living. I’ve tried all the others on the market and this comes out on top. Bravo, Jim! — Jorden

 

Let’s read a few other great reviews of this amazing juggling ball:

 

best kept secret in juggling  best kept secret in juggling

This is going to be the first review of this product that i will submit i got a set of seven in the mail today about three his ago and wow as soon as i held one in my hand i was captivated the weight is perfect they manage to keep there shape very well the feel of them is UN like anything I’ve ever juggled before the ultra suede feels heavenly in your hand and when you squeeze them a fist full of marshmallows comes to mind.
I have juggled more variations of juggling balls than care to remember and this is the first one that feels like it was made to be juggled, this is as of right now the best juggling ball I’ve ever touched.
After a few hours of juggling with these i am very pleased when you drop one it doesn’t roll away from you, every time the ball lands in your hand it feels extremely stable.
On to of all of this i can fit all seven balls in one hand then violently shake my hand around with out one of them flying away.
There will be another review soon once i log some real practice time with them but right now i would ofbeen happy if these balls were selling@$20 a peice knowing that these are only $14 a peice blows my mind!

All weather wonder balls  All weather wonder balls

I’m testing these at 113 Fahrenheit in Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates) and they rock the casbah! My other props are suffering texture problems from the sweat, heat and humidity, but these invitingly soft Phat Tyre Tossaballs feel fab. I got my first Flying Clipper balls decades ago and they’re still whole and hearty. These new puppies arrived feeling like old friends and are surviving show after show after show. – Rhys Thomas



Best Bags EVER!  Best Bags EVER!

I have been juggling for 15 years, and have tried dozens of different juggling balls. When I picked one of these Phat Tyres the other day at my friends house, I got a huge, stupid grin on my face. Luckily he had three of these, and I was able to start juggling them right away. I was immediately struck by a few things. First was how nice they felt when they hit my hands, no matter how high I threw them, they always landed with a nice soft feel into my palm. Second was how much precision i had in my throws, especially as i started throwing them at the heights needed for 7 and 8 balls. I was able to place the balls right where I wanted them. None of the floppy feeling and erratic behavior that some bean bags have, and the weight is just right, it instantly reloads the muscles of your arms to throw them again. So I found out what these magical juggling bags were and ordered 9 of them. I got them in the mail yesterday, and have already gotten personal bests in 7 and 8 ball duration, as well as 4 and 5 ball Mills Mess, and back crosses. I have also been dabbling with footbag on and off for a few years, and was able for the fist time ever, to juggle 2 bags on one foot. I havent felt this excited about a juggling prop in 10 years. Do yourself a favor and get a set, your hands will thank you. — Tyler

 

 

WOW! From us here at Flying Clipper, THANK YOU!!

Flying Clipper has recently sent 24 juggle balls (11 Phat Tyre, 13 Phat Tyre Speeders) to Alex Barron of the UK. Alex is a world class numbers
juggler who has qualified 11 balls. Here is a link to a video of Alex juggling 11 balls:

Flying Clipper sought him out to test our new numbers juggling balls the Phat Tyre 12 and Phat Tyre Speeder. If you have not heard, Phat
Tyre juggle balls employ a unique blend of filler material consisting of recycled tire rubber and stainless steel pellets for filler material and are
not only 100% handmade but also machine washable.

Flying Clipper is obviously anxious to hear back from Alex and get his response and we will pass his feedback on to our fans when we receive
it!

Our motto here is “When jugglers talk, Flying Clipper listens!”
