Topic: Fakini Balls
Message: Posted by: coolleprechaun (Apr 1, 2005 02:55PM)
I want to order a set of Fakinis but I cant really afford the 2 inch set so I'm thinking about the Fakini Golf Ball Set. Do the balls in the Fakini Golf Ball Set have the little grooves like a real golf ball or are they silicone rubber like the other ones. Any help would be great.
Thanks

Try the fakini balls that are 1 3/4 inches(that is what I use) I believe hanklee.com has them for about $70. That is where I got my 3 sets.

ps. I LOVE THEM!!!!

hope this helps

Thanks. I have one question. The red ones look more pinkish and red is the color that I want. Does it just look like they're pink or are they?

I own 2 sets of white and a red set and the red set is UGLY!!!!! don't get red anyway white is much more visible. you can also call also call house of fakini and buy single balls so you can do color changes.

I would get white its just that for my act I kinda have to use red so right now I'm using the multiplying sponge balls but they're pretty bad. How ugly are the red ones. Are they pink like they look in the picture on hanklee.com?

If you neec color balls, do not spend a fprtune on them. I simply go to my local toy shop and buy 1 3/4 inch super bouncy balls. They come in a variety of colors and are the same size as my Fakinis. From the stage, the colors look great and they handle very well also. It is a great way to do color changes etc. without the exspense. Hope this helps.

I have a compete set of Multiplying Golf balls, diminishing ball, flash 4, and Jumbo Golf ball made by Fakini. They have the little dimples in them just like real golf balls. All white. I will sell the complete set for $150 plus postage. PM me if interested.

Fakini recently came out with a red ball check out Stevens Magic to look at them. That is: http://www.stevensmagic.com

Fakini has 'dayglow' colors also.

Does anyone know if the "Rocket Red" ones are nice vivid red.
Kyle, the only problem with that is I do a multiplying ball roputine so I need the s****. Thanks anyway.

I gotcha. I just do my routine with white and then do color changes within the routine.

If anyone knows what the rocket red balls look like because there's no picture of it at stevensmagic it would be great if you could tell me.
Thanks everyone.

Yeh, I never did like the color of the red balls I have seen. That is why I use the white Fakinis and then go into color changes just using regular 1 3/4 inch colored bouncy balls. They have viubrant colors I like and work wello for color changes etc.

There are actually some now that are red & not the pinkish color they used to be. I think there used to be a picture on Steven's website.

Check with denny and lee, they carry flash fours for 1 3/4" fakini's. Might not be in stock but he can put a set on hold when they do come in.

Years back, I spoke with Frank about why red Fakini's are hot pink instead of red and was told that too much pigment weakens the silicone. If I do a color change, I use a different type ball altogether.

I use the 1 3/4 inch white Fakini golf balls and they are great. The dimples with the golf balls even give you more grip (not that you would need them with the Fakinis). For the color changes, I simply use the yellow golf balls provided by Empire magic. I think they are only $8 for a set. They have a completely different feel than the Fakini's and that's what I like about them. When I go to my pocket or my hat, I don't have to look for the ball - I can feel the difference.

Although many web sites offer Fakinis for sale, don't be surprised if they are actually out of stock. Everyone waits paitently for Frank to ship his products, but they are well worth the wait.

I've had my name on Denny's back order list for quite a while now, looking to get the Fakini flash 4 and Jumbo Golf Ball.
