Overall the gimmick is very well made.
The halves fit together nicely with just the right strength, making manipulation fairly easy in general.
You can toss and roll the gimmick like a real ball. Since the magnets are well protected by the silicone, so you don't have to worry about dropping the gimmick onto the ground. Still, the gimmick will definitely split if you drop it.

However the halves aren't evenly weighted due to the construction of the gimmick, and it is considerably heavier than a normal ball. From external observation there is no way that you can tell which is which. If you are using a armband, you have to be aware of the opposite poles of the magnet. Advanced techniques are found to be very challenging with this gimmick.

There is only one size available now (1.7"), in white or red only. Hopefully JL will manufacture the other sizes and colours as well soon.
