Posted:I just made myself a practice pair last night out of string, gaffa, 2 tennis balls and 2 screws.

Screw goes into ball, string goes around screw, tighten screw so tennis ball doesn't fly off and bean the dog, then roll and fold some lengths of gaffa to make the handles
About as DIY as you can get!

I'm planing on wrapping more tape around the balls to give them some more weight (and to stop the damn dog going after them!)

Posted:Broke my practive glowsticks once while I was learning, and I was so desperate to keep going I replaced them with the only thing I could find...padlocks. NEVER do this!

P.S. I think we need a smiley who's in pain. It would be so applicable to this board. <--- These two need to have a kid, it would look about right
