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
Phatty 14 Fleece Juggle Ball
These balls are great! They are soft, easy to throw and catch and need absolutely no break-in work done to them The size and weight are near perfect! I bought 5 orange and yellow balls and the colors are very bright and vibrant. It's also nice to know that they are completely washable so if want to use them outside and tend to drop them as much as I do you don't have to worry about not being able to clean the dirt off. I highly recommend this bag and I know you will like them! Also, I have recently purchased other juggling balls from this company and quickly found out that their quality and service is second to none.

Phatty 14 Fleece Juggle Ball review update
This is an update to my previous post regarding the Phatty 14 Fleece ball. After using them almost daily for several weeks I have noticed that the balls leak tire rubber dust out of them. I first noticed that the yellow color of the balls were starting to turn a slightly noticeable shade of black but I
figured it may have possibly been from dirt on my hands until I noticed that the top of the table I normally practice at was beginning to develop a gritty feeling to it. The gritty feeling turned out to be a fine coating of black dust from the juggling balls. It looked similar to disc brake dust that develops on my car wheels after driving it for a few weeks without washing the wheels. I still love these juggling balls as the size and weight and catch-ability of them are near perfect in my opinion but due to the dust factor I will have to lower my ratings to three stars instead of five stars as previously rated.
This part of the review is our dialog with Mark in regards to his updated review:
Thanks for the feedback on the fleece. I believe any leakage can be
minimized by an initial washing of the balls.If that does not eliminate the
problem, then you may have a faulty ball. Please keep me informed.
Thanks! I did wash them initially when got them and I will run them through
the washer again to see if that helps. If not I will use them outside where
the small amount of dust doesn't matter. They are still very good juggling
balls regardless of the tire dust and I will keep you posted.
Thanks for the new info. I am also testing them here. It appears that the
rubber was not sifted properly before manufacture of the fleece. The rubber
is sifted and cleaned several times before construction. Yours is the first
I have heard of this problem. If it persists and you loose to much rubber,
please let me know. Would you be willing to send a close up photo?
I am willing to replace any balls you deem defective.
Thanks again and sorry for the problem.
I don't think a picture would do any good because you really can't see the
rubber on the desk that I was using and the only way I could tell there was
a problem was when I put my hand on top of the desk and could tell it had a
gritty feeling to it. I couldn't even see it on my hands. I used one of
those lysol cleaning towels to clean the top of the desk and that is when I
could see the black color. On the towel it just looked like the desktop was
dirty but I know it was from the balls. I am very happy with the balls and
there is absolutely no need to replace them but I thank you for the offer.
I would never have noticed anything wrong if I had been using them over a
carpeted floor or sofa instead of a desktop so it's probabaly not going to
be noticed by very many people if at all. I do tend to drop them a lot and
I'm sure that adds to the leakage.
Also, I have not had any problems with any of the other Phat Tyre 90 balls
that I have purchased from you and those have also been used over the same
desktop. I gave a couple sets away as gifts and neither person has mentioned
having any problems with them.
Thanks again Mark. Your feedback is invaluable.Keep in touch as the balls continue to break-in.
