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.

Simply put, one touch & one word – and that word is WOW.
The first time you hold a Phat Tyre 14, you’ll have the urge to say that because you’ll be hard pressed to recall ever feeling anything quite like it.
Functionality of a juggling prop, however, is obviously more important than feel.
Once again, one catch is all it takes to realize the confidence a Phat Tyre will give you in catching.
If it lands in your hand, it will almost certainly be a catch.
Its resiliency will keep it from bouncing out, its grip will keep it from sliding out, and its weight will keep it right where it lands.
The Phat Tyre is loosely stuffed, but still has sufficient density to make throws right on target.
Its contrasting colors (if that’s your preference) allow for great visual spotting, and they are washable so that won’t change.
I’ve made hundreds of my own beanbags to get that ‘just right’ feel for multiplexing patterns.
The Phat Tyre 14 is unique in that it not only has that ‘just right’ multiplex feel but is also well suited for numbers juggling – or for any other pattern.
I’ve hit some of my personal bests shortly after using these, and I wouldn’t be surprised if the same happens with many of you.
Regardless of your juggling style, you won’t know what you’re missing until you’ve tried a Phat Tyre.

Tossaball Phat Tyre 14 Juggle Ball

Review: This is my first “juggle ball” from Flying Clipper. I’m currently trying to learn 4 balls Mill’s mess and this ball helped me keep the pattern going longer. It feels that I have better control and it’s easy to catch and hold/release 3 in 1 hand also so it’s good for learning to juggle 5 balls.

 

*Note from Flying Clipper: Thanks Andre we appreciate the good word.

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)
