Posted:Ive noticed quiet a few CJers here. Has anyone heard of or seen a cj ball meant to be lit on fire? Ive seen juggling balls like this. But they either arent round or have gaps that might get caught on fingers.

Posted:The only reason toss juggling balls that light on fire work are beacuse they are not in contact iwith the hand for long, and even then you have to be very careful about the outerbits getting to hot.
Rolling a flaming ball around on your body for 2-3 minutes doesn't seem very smart to me mate.

Posted:I don't mean to offend, but wrapping a ball of fire attached to a metal chain around any part of your body dosen't seem very smart either. But if your prepared and you know what your doing, your all good. And I know this really cool web page that sells Kevlar sleaves that might help.

Posted:The only fire balls I know of that are even possible for bare skin contact are the ones that have a small fire in the center and then a kevlar covered wire looped frame around it. Knowing jugglers who tried them, they're [censored] for contact, since the frame tends to be quite loose, doen't maintain the perfect circular shape, and are much too light for good control anyway, and they're realitly [censored] for juggling since the fire usually goes out in a minute anyway. At 30$ a pop the money is all in all better spen elsewhere. Why someone hasn't patented a fire ball with a sturdier heavier frame is beyond me.

Posted:ive tried it a couple times with a fire juggling ball, one of those wooden ones wrapped in kevlar. seems a lot easier than juggling with them to me, just gotta keep it rolling and not put any part of yourself above the flame.

maybe you could modify one of the fire balls on this site using some kevlar thread from HoP to sew up each side? they sell replacement wicks on that site if you wanted to use a different ball completely...

Posted:I've tried it a few times with the kevlar coated wooden balls but found the moves are limited - plam spinning was tricky - better off with night glow acrylics.
