henry's delphins are becoming very popular at the moment, especially for some reason in the states (where they are much harder to get!).

they are a great budget club (at only 12 each) and (from reports) are at least as durable as henry's other clubs and renegades.


i want it to be summer so i can juggle clubs again...

Posted:Yeah our society got a new gear order in a while ago, and after some consideration we went for henrys delphins for the society clubs, and I have to say they are nicely weighted and light enough to not wreck you hands..

But for myself I would always prefer henrys pirouettes... Or Passe Passe Px3's which are ok if a lil heavy and not as durable...

They are really nice to juggle, I like 'm.

I think they are a good starters lub.

Posted:i gots beard circus fluro yello, they are good begging clubs i recon but the knobs come off... try tape to put them on cos re-drilling and screwing wont last long...

I like to pass albatross, they look wicked too, but I recon i might get fat bodied px3's next, mainly cos i want a club that dosnt break so easy....

I learnt to juggle on dlephins, and while I recon they are a great begginers club they are just to light for outdoor work, where even a light breeze will blow them off.

Ok so i'm looking to buy some new clubs soon.

I really like henry pirouettes, but also have played with some PX3's recently (but can't remember what type... grr) what were nice(but slightly odd that you could bend them... ).

I also don't want to spend shed loads of money on them.

My questions are, which do you reckon would be the best for economy & nice juggling. And do you know where i could get them cheaply?

Edit: Just looked in henry's shop and they are 115 Euro so about 77 each.



Maybe not cheap option like I'd hoped.

Posted:has any one used Mr Babache Flip Colour? or Flip short? they're the same price (AUD $26 from Juggle Art) which is realy cheep, but all there is in my area is Babache Stars, which cost much more.

other than those, i tried Albatrosses a few years ago, n they wernt too bad, but i prefer a medium to slim club. iv got one set which are actualy foam bassball bats, with an aluminium core. there good first clubs, but only if your tall, coz they're realy long, and spin realy slow, so you need alot of arm leangth. they're also great for tucks.

Posted:yeah i think i had the Mr Babache Flip Colour ones as my first clubs.

Personaly i don't like them i think they are good for learning a basic cascade but they flip to slowly to be good for much else. Plus the plastic handles feel yuck compared to wound ones.

Posted:well with all the brand names and model references flying around I've started to feel a little out of my league. However, I have some fire clubs with wound handles and think the design is crap. The tape at the flame end is burnt and the wrap around handle has come loose. Not over impressed cos they've not seen much use. I have normal clubs too (sorry normal will have to do - I could say they're a Mightyspin 2000 Ti but I'd be talking [censored]) that have a rubbery plastic handle which is not a wrap around type and they've stood me in good stead for years. Much more durable. I won't buy wrap around handles unless it's taped, stapled AND glued.

you would probably find that normal clubs with a wrapped hadle normaly woodnt fall apart. its probly just coz yours are fire, and the tape got burned. i found a similar thing happend to my starff. it was next to my fire sward, and the fuel in the sward (petrolium hidroxide i think) disolved the tape on my staff.

can you remember who made your clubs? both sets?

Light. Skinny. And bendy. Which is odd if you're used to something like a renegade, but I would imagine not so weird if you juggle radical fish.
Don't believe the whole "indestructable" thing, it's plainly not true. (There's a chap at my local juggling group got some px3's at BJC (April), he's just replaced them cos they were completely censored - still, he did give them a lot of abuse.. )


A wise man once said: "You have two ears and one mouth, therefore you should shut the censored up and listen" (though, to be fair, he might not've put it _quite_ like that..)

Posted:So just bumping this for a quick inquiry (seemed like the best place for it): if I'm just starting to play with club manipulation of the sort that does not involve throwing, is there any reason for me to spring for a better club than the MB Soft & Safe? I know with poi weight distribution is something that affected my spinning at all skill levels, but my club spinning experience so far consists of 10 minutes with someone else's PX3's so I don't know if something like that matters as much...

Posted:I would go for something more like an Airflite or the Play 1 peice club.

Both are also reasonably cheap, little heavier, and probably better for contact club if you ever get into that.
Both have nice round knobs also, for ease of use.
Plus, both of those are a bit thicker than the Soft and Safe, which makes anything you do with it look better.

This is all just my opinion though. *shrug*

Posted:Thanks! I do like the look of the Airflite, particularly when it comes to its weight. And after the Soft & Safe at $8 it looks like the next price range up is $17-20, so it comes out reasonably priced as these things go...
