Our Tossaball® Hybrid TX juggle ball has all the attributes of our Hybrid juggling balls, including two layers of cover material trapping crushed rock between them isolating most of the ball's weight to the outside rim while the interior of the ball is filled to volume with recycled plastic pellets. These balls will not only outshine all the rest but they are also very durable and of course completely washable and 100% handmade. At this price they will not last long and are subject to availability.
Diameter: 2.55" Weight: 120 grams
These are my second set of tossaballs. I couldn't wear out my first set of balls in 8 years, so I gave them to my daughter when she moved to college this year. I have now been juggling with these new smaller balls balls and i couldn't be more happier. They are the perfect weight, they stay round, the balance is awesome, and the colors are crisp! Also the customer service by Jim is remarkable. So there is no way you could go wrong ordering any of these balls. They are top quality, and i've juggled them all over the last 25 years.

As close to perfect as i've juggled
the title pretty much expresses it, these balls truly are incredible. when they first arrived and i opened the box the first thing i noticed was just how bright and vivid the red color was. the picture really does it no justice. the color is very bright and shows up well with any kind of background whether it be from your POV or the audiences. after i took them out of the box and fiddled with them for a bit i decided i'd throw them in the washing machine so as to really loosen up the fabric some. when i took them out of the washing machine i noticed that unlike the other sets of tossaballs that i've used and washed, these didn't really feel wet, only cold. i attribute that to the type of fabric not absorbing much moisture which is a good thing because it means they can be juggled with water around. even if one gets dropped in, it won't hurt the filler, but it also won't make the outside to soggy to juggle which is nice. the next day after they had "dried" completely is when i finally realized that these were the set of juggling balls i'd always wanted. they have an amazing feel to them. not too soft but not too hard. they sit well in your hands or when dropped and have just enough give that they don't bounce or roll much on the ground. they also still keep a nice solid shape in the air, and because they are hybrids, the flight through the air is a true as can be.
the material itself seems to be very durable although i could see the color maybe fading a little after a few years. other than that i don't know of any issues i could ever see using these balls. by far my favorite set of juggling balls that i've ever used; these will definitely get continued use from me for many a year to come.

This has to be the most solid bean-filled ball I have ever juggled. I really like the way the material feels on and lands in my hand. Since 1975, I've always included juggling in my character comedy performances. Seriously going to write a routine (or two) that includes these wonderful juggling balls.

Quit Staring and Just Buy Some!
My family and juggling club bought piles of these, especially the "gold star/blue", our school colors, but they don't have to be your school colors to love them. They're bright, beautiful, and look great in performances and demonstrations.
We received our shipment several months ago and these balls just feel better and better with use.
And I'll never buy another birdseed bag again. These balls won't succumb to washing, wet grass, or mice (which ate most of my old birdseed bags).
We love these bags and you will too. So quit staring at them online (like I did for weeks) and just buy some now.

Perfection (For lack of a better word.)
I was never able to juggle 5 objects until I tried tossaball hybrids. Each ball is exactly the same; I have never been able to find a juggle ball that even comes close! Size, shape, weight...all stay perfectly uniform even after a year of use and abuse. Not only that, but I could just sit there and stare at them because they are so beautiful. To top it all off, along with a product of top-notch quality, Flying Clipper's customer service is unbeatable. Unfortunately, there is one downside; I can no longer blame missed catches and drops on poor juggling equipment.
