Bill Coad does it again by setting a new world record for 6 ball duplex juggling using our Dirtbag footbags. The size and weight of the Dirtbag is perfect for certain categories of multiplex juggling.  Flying Clipper has designed a ball exclusively for Bill. These balls will arrive by early March and we will be anxious to see what Bill can do with them. Our promise to our juggling followers is to have the perfect ball for every type of juggling. We intend to keep that promise. Thanks Bill and keep up the good work.

Since 1983 we here at Flying Clipper have forged our own path along handmade ball design. After more than 30 years of manufacturing we are happy to be creating a new line of hand made balls using our own original designs and employing recycled rubber and recycled plastic pellets in our efforts to make the best balls available in today’s highly competitive market place.  The response has been so good that we will be adding several new models this season, solidifying our line-up. Creating a juggle ball for every type of juggling from stage/performance balls to high numbers and multiplex juggling disciplines is what we are all about . From our now famous Tossaball Hybrid juggle balls to our new recycled rubber filled Phat Tyre juggle balls, ALL of our balls are completely machine washable. We encourage prospective customers to do a little research and find out what other jugglers are recommending and then come see us here at Flying Clipper. We know you will be glad you did. See you in Clipperville!

Flying Clipper has donated a seven ball set of Phat Tyre 12 juggle balls to give away to some lucky juggler at this years Austin Juggle Fest. The festival dates are February 21 -23 at the Texas School for the Deaf.

We are happy to again be part of this years’ festival. Bennett Santora will be a special guest at the festival and also be doing his own workshop. He prefers to use our Phat Tyre juggle balls in his performances. We sent him a set to give away while at the  festival. I know it will be fun for him and it is our pleasure to help promote both juggling and Bennett Santora. Here is his press release:

 

Bennett Santora was created by a group of mad scientists who were intent on taking over the world by installing jugglers in key leadership positions.  He was designed to be witty, intelligent, charming and to have super-natural juggling ability.  He is being groomed to take over the world military industrial complex and convert all weapons production to production of juggling props.  At present he is an entertainer and 3rd grader.  He lives in New York City.

Happy juggling to all from Flying Clipper and have fun at this years festival.
