1. Gokmop - June 5, 2006

I have recently purchased a set of 3 T-balls from a sports store for $6. They have several advantages…

– Right size
– Slightly heavier than a beanbag for wind resistance, but not nearly as heavy as an exerball
– Leather covering makes them almost indestructible. (I’m sure a car would do them in, but landing on pavement at whatever speed just isn’t going to damage them)
– They were $6. If one of them dies or gets lost, I’m not exactly cryin’

The only disadvantage is that they will bounce and roll, which I expect square beanbags won’t as much.

Hey Gokmop,

Thanks for stoppin’ by the blog. Feel free to add this site to your links page if you like it. You must be talking about tennis balls. Tennis balls are pretty good for juggling but the bouncing & rolling thing is a huge drawback! Unless you are incredibly good (like Albert Lucas) you are going to have a drop every so often. In a running race you don’t want to have to chase too far to get an errant ball. I still like a nice broke-in set of Juggle Bug cubes.

I imagine by “T-Balls” Gokmop is not talking about tennis balls. Rather, he is talking about, well, t-balls. T-balls are the same size and weight as baseballs but with a softer shell, so they are easier on the hands to juggle with. And they are a nice size and weight for juggling with no bounce (though yes they will roll away).

Thanks for the tip. I’d never heard of T-balls before.
