Looking for suggestions for stage ball 100mm. Best product and weight, seller (Dube, Renegade ?). What have you bought and was happy with or disappointed? Thanks
Et tu, Spartacus?

Hi spartacus,

I purchase from a wide range of manufacturers.

I just received three of the new Dubé "Body Rolling" balls, which I find to be extremely versatile and adaptable for stage juggling.

They are larger than 100 mm (125 mm) and weigh in at 300 gm.

Dubé also has 101 mm stage balls.

Both are beautifully made, with a slightly flexible shell that allows for a worry-free grip.

I rate these balls very highly.

The sil-x balls are pretty cool too - liquid inside to stabilize it and it retains a bit of "tackiness".

Excellent recommendation, Nak!

SIL-X balls are incredibly stable even when thrown into the stratosphere.

They will definitely help you with foot catches, head rolling, neck balancing and all manner of assorted isolations.

Last week, I was doing my thing at a gym, tossing these babies 15 – 20 feet high and catching them in perfect isolation on my elbows.

I used a Dube 3 1/2" stage ball for contact juggling for many years. Recently I bought a Dube 125mm Body Rolling ball. I like the larger size and heavier weight. It does make a number of contact juggling moves way easier...

It seems there is relationship between the evolution of both juggling tricks, and juggling equipment. Advances in juggling equipment contribute to the creation of new juggling tricks. I don't imagine juggling 5 clubs was very pleasant back in the days when clubs weighed 1 pound or more each...

Silx for the win, I've played with a few 110mm's Acrylics that are great
