What do you refer to when you say "thanks for supporting the inventors"?

Flying Clipper has been designing and producing its own line of footbags and juggle balls since 1983 pioneering hand made ball design featuring our patented 8 panel, 14 panel and 32 panel designs. The patents running their course years ago, these designs are now the most widely copied designs for handmade footbags and juggle balls. We like folks to remember...when you purchase a Flying Clipper product, you are supporting the inventors...and we thank you!

How do I wash my Flying Clipper footbag or juggle ball?

Machine washing and drying is an acceptable way to wash your Dirtbag footbag or Tossaball juggle ball. You can place your footbag or juggle ball in with your colored cloths and run a regular wash cycle(no bleach). Cold water and dish soap or other mild soap under the tap is another way to get the job done. Get your footbag or juggle wet, apply a small amount of soap and then squeeze out the dirt. Let your footbag or juggle ball dry on the window sill overnight. Be extra careful with facile footbags as the fabric is very soft. You may squeeze out the excess water but do not wring out when wet. Let your facile footbag completely dry before play.

What is the advantage of a sand-filled Dirtbag Footbag?

We recommend the sand-filled Dirtbag footbags for the beginner, because the sand makes them softer and easier to "stall" or "delay" on your foot or knee, however they don't bounce as much as a pellet-filled bag. Sand-filled footbags make it easier to learn tricks and are great for practicing. We fill ours about 1/3rd full of sand, for stickiness plus responsiveness. Please see our Dirtbag Footbags product page for more detailed information about how to choose.

What are the advantages of a pellet-filled footbag?

Pellet filled footbags are bouncier and will kick off your knee or foot better, but require a bit more skill to be able to use effectively. Pellets add volume to the footbag and are light in weight making the footbag more responsive when contacted with your feet for a more true "kicking" experience. Please see our pellet-filled footbags product page for more detailed information.

What is the advantage of "Hybrid" Dirtbags and Juggle balls?

Bridging the gap between hands and feet is what is fueling our invention of hybrid footbags and juggle balls, using both hands and feet together seamlessly. Unique in engineering and construction, Hybrids combine two layers of cover material capturing heavy crushed rock between the two layers. This means that much of the Hybrid's weight is at the rim, allowing several things to occur simultaneously: 
1. True flight through the air = less collisions and more solid contact with the hands or feet
 2. Two layers of cover material sewn together create a bias as in plywood where more layers mean a much stronger finished product. 
 3. Two layers of cover material allow very little stretch. Because of this, soft or firm, hybrids keep their shape even after many machine washings.
 4. The dual filler is non co-mingling, which isolates the heavy filler (crushed rock) to the outside portion of the ball and the light filler (plastic pellets) to the inside of the ball.
 5. Hybrids are completely machine washable. Hybrids provide greater predictability in flight, never get too soft, have a great grip or feel, and are completely washable. Someone was bound to come up with this technology sooner or later, we are happy we did. We think our Hybrid juggle balls and hybrid footbags are the highest quality you can find. They may cost a little more, but they last longer and provide much better performance. Please let us know what you think!

Which one of your bags was it that won so many World Footbag Championships?

It was the JUICE FACILE footbag, which helped Kenny Shults along his way to winning more than 50 championship titles. In 1985, as he was accepting his championship title, he whipped out his Juice Facile and said: "This is the Juiciest footbag I have ever kicked!" At that point, the crowd all started chanting "JUICE, JUICE, JUICE, JUICE."

We do love to tell that story, but it's because nothing since then has changed...our footbags are still handmade, still fly over the moon, and are still the best quality footbag you can get. For professional play or just for fun, you can't beat a Flying Clipper footbag or juggle ball, and we know you'll agree once you try one. See for yourself, check out our juggling supplies or footbag supplies!
