I've been looking for some time for metal contact balls, like the one's that Durbs had at falmouth. I've seen them on Ebay, But I keep getting outbid, and don't fancy paying in excess of 25 for one.

Does anyone know anywhere that sells these? Why are they such a rarity?

To see exactly which ones I mean, go to [Old link] and it's the first thing you see on the video.

There are absolutly none of those stores down south...

There doesnt even seem to be one in London!

eek

and Ive got a lovely black contact ball, and as Cole says, it seems to be much less scratched, simply becuase the colour is black.

Nope sorry Dave, I checked both of those places and there's no mention... I think Barnsley is the closest to you.

I bought 6 2 balls today... however, Durbs I didn't get yours because I wasn't sure.

The 3 balls are really very big and heavy... the 2 seem to be closer to the right size, and are light enough to play with... I wanted to check with you before I buy them.

Maybe we should double check with Mot?!!

Alrighty... Durbs, the shop has both sizes left over for me until tomorrow... so let me know which size you want and how many.

How on earthj did you find that site, I looked so hard for it! and hehehehe

something that people down south don't have! ubblol

The one in Hull will probably be open quicker than you think, the one in Glasgow only took a couple of weeks to be set up.

I've got a 2 and a 3. Although I don't really contact juggle id say the smaler one is easier for doing stuff with your hands and the large is good or stuff on your body and arms.

also, Look out for the LED colour change balls they have, they're great for poi and juggling and a bargin at three pounds each. They are about 80mm. I love them, I think a juggling person must design the products for the shop, they seem to be aiming for that market! They also have wooden contact like balls, i don't know if they would work but they're different!

and yey, Yorkshire people! biggrin
