Hi All,
Do you know of any manufacturers who sell these as the core for a set of Cup balls?
with thanks,

The Ambitious Card sells them as well… I have a set that are felt covered and another that are monkey fist balls.

They do make a thunk on hard surfaces.

The grey 7/8" mouse balls work very well with Charlie Miller and Phoenix cups. You don't need to have a cover made for them, either.

Sounds like they would be very good for gravity loads -- if they don't talk too much. SETH

Mouse balls are very heavy. Because of that we do not recommend using them because of their magnetic properties. They do make a nice set of balls, tho. Especially for outdoor work such as busking.

The Vernon/Mora wand spin vanish is particularly nice using a heavy ball like a mouse ball.
