Flying Clipper continues its grass roots efforts to get the word out to jugglers about our great line-up of Tossaball Juggle Balls! This one slipped by us but we are posting it anyway. The Bay Area Circus Arts Festival and the Berkeley jugglers put on a another great event over the weekend of Oct 4. Flying Clipper was on board with a raffle donation of our new Phat Tyre Pro Juggler 90 juggle balls. Good job Berkeley enthusiasts on another successful weekend of fun!
Flying Clipper is happy to announce a transfer of props to Voices For Children of Broward County (FL). More than 60 Flying Clipper juggle balls were donated to help children learn how to juggle and instill in them the confidence of accomplishment. Alan Garber, a Ft Lauderdale CPA and avid juggler, asked us to help and we are glad he did. Thanks Alan for your good work and the opportunity to help.
Record rainfall did not dampen the spirits of hundreds of jugglers who descended on Reed College for the 21st annual Portland Juggle Festival. Flying Clipper is the only vendor to attend every festival. Many local jugglers around the Portland-Eugene area are long time friends and supporters of Flying Clipper and it is a joy to share time with this great group of people. As in last years festival when Flying Clipper introduced its first recycled rubber filled juggle balls, this years festival also saw an amazing amount of rubber filled juggle balls placed in the hands of hungry jugglers. Flying Clipper prides itself on innovation and we know we have hit the mark with the new Phat Tyre (recycled rubber filled) series of balls.
As we continue to perfect our line of juggle balls we are sure that the feedback we receive will translate into new and better juggle balls to show each year at the Portland festival. Consider joining us next season to see what is new as the next generation of improvements will be presented and get a chance to win a set yourself in the raffle. Thanks Portland Jugglers for another outstanding event!
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.

Check out our very first customer review of this brand new product in our juggle catalog!
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
