Bill Coad does it again and this time he breaks the world record for 5 ball duplex using our Phat Tyre 14 Juggle Balls. ”Wow” is how he describes these great juggle balls and we agree with his assessment and also add our own “Wow” to his great juggling skills. We can’t wait to see what he does next. Keep up the good work Bill! Here is a link to view the record which is approximately 15,000 catches. Like he said to us, “Count them if you want”. :=) (it’s over 59 minutes long)
Hats off to Bennett Santora and his juggling skills.

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!”
And a video made by one of our talented customers demonstrating the Tossaball Plush Puppy:
Thanks for all the awesome reviews!
