Posted:I've been looking into this for a while now and after a bit of research and some excellent threads on here (which i cant find now smile ), I've finally settled on a set of henry's pirouettes.

Been stealing my freinds ones whenever i get the chance and really like these ones. Also tried out Radical Fish and some Dube ones.

Also, almost everyone i know seems to have the henrys ones so i guess it would help when passing to have matching clubs. Not that i can pass yet mind you. smile

best of luck

Posted:Arrrgghh!! Pirouettes mad2

Pre, you've reopened the pirouettes vs. albatross debate spank

Pirouettes are thin and have long handles, probably better for learning clubs and numbers clubs with. Easy to catch wrong ended and have a fairly fast spin. Quite good for learning to pass with. Many people love them biggrin

Albatross are fat and difficult to catch wrong-ended, have a slow spin, but many people (including myself) swear by them meditate

Depends what you're after, I find it's difficult to change from albatross to any other club, whereas it's fairly easy to change from piros to another club, and if you're passing it's easier to have a mixed bag with piros than alba's footinmouth

However, ubbloco many American jugglers including all the professionals seem to love Renegade clubs. I used to use Euro's too, they lasted me two years and then died. They have quite a fast spin and are easy to catch wrong ended, however since starting to use the albatross I haven't looked back. Nice and floaty smile

Posted:Mmm, albatrosses smile

I prefer the almost lazy spin they have compared to anything else. Also, they're a very nice weight if you fancy a bit of swinging the clubs instead of juggling them.


But there's no sense crying over every mistake. You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

Posted:PX3!!!!!!!!!

kicking myself for not buying them when i had the chance.

come in albatross or piroette style, good weight, they will make custom colours, its an itaian manufacturer, and they are practically unbreakable.

the only weird thing is that they flex slightly, which traditional dowl cores dont do, but im really fed up with broken clubs so Im going for thease next...

either that or Dube Klassic Klubs...

but i havent juggled them.

of the rest, I love albatross too, tho they are gonna make you stronger before they make you better...

Posted:PX3 are too light, in my opinion. I definitely prefere Henry's Pirouette. PX3 are sold by Passe Passe (site). Glow PX3 are quite cool though, they work with LR33 batteries and cost 40 euros (26 pounds I guess), that's slighty cheaper than Gloclubs pro biggrin

Posted:I haven't read all of this thread, so I'm sorry if I repeat some of what's been said.

If you're looking for something sort of cheap and really high quality, I have a set of Twist colour clubs, which I ordered from Goudurix, it's a shop in Montreal, Canada. They're absolutely wonderful, they're light and well-balanced and really really durable. I've been working on eight club passing with them and they're working really well.

Euro clubs are also really really inexpensive, and they're almost as tight as the Twist.

If you're looking for something professional, then Henry's Pirouettes are definitely the way to go. They're probably some of the best training clubs on the market, pretty well everyone who knows what they're doing endorses them, and particularly the white ones are beautiful. They're light, so no danger of getting tendonitis from practice or anything like that, and they're incredibly well-balanced and they never fall apart. They're beauties.

(Beard Circus Special Luminous 12 each from Oddballs)
They're glowy and cheap - two of my favourite things. biggrin

I have been using my girlfriends clubs to learn with. Her gran found them at a car boot sale for 1.50! They are small (only about 3/4 of the beard ones) and wieghted quite strangely but I've found that I can juggle better with mine after an hour of so with the 'car boot' ones.

Posted:*sigh*

Beard what? Beard do a lot of different type of clubs... I have one beard. It is on my Chin. It's a fun little thing, it keeps me amused when I stroke it, especially when I am being thoughtful...

*looks at Beard Price-list in his hand*

I see... 38 different options available from Beard, including the Radical fish...

Are you worried someone will Copy you? or that we'll laugh at you because of your preference in Club?

*shakes head in disbelief*

Now then, now then,

lets not have any disbelief. Its not good for the soul.



Pre, it does seem a little that you are actually trying to take the piss. No.. honestly it does.

Something Im a little confused about which I hope you can clear up for me.

You said originally, "although i wasn't looking for starter clubs I was looking for advaced clubs" ...but you then go on to say: "IF you are on a budget". confused

Did you somehow manage to find budget advanced clubs? umm



Or is it more that you were looking for advanced clubs, but decided on beginner ones to start with? umm





"about $30 each at most stores" - my local health food shop doesnt sell them wink

That wasn't so hard, was it? smile Although it was a bit like drawing Blood from a Stone... rolleyes

Having now managed to get more than a qualify of three clubs, I might actually invest in a set... ubblol I would probably go for a set of wide bodied clubs... They'd be nice and Visual for swinging as well, I guess...
