I was just wondering how many of us there are in here?
Anyone else partial to throwing liquor around?

I did a bit a flair back in the day.. I stopped for lack of venues to practice.. The only thing I still do is airborne glass.. and flip the bottle from left hand to the right as its pouring..looks great if you get the knack and the floating glass stays stationary in mid air..

I do a bit of flair. Ex-Fridays etc.....

Do mainly corporate type stuff now though. I loved it. Flair took me all around Europe. I was doing it long before most in places like Germany and Holland so I was kinda unique. Not like now. The skill level has gone through the roof!

I just started learning some Flairtending last week at my local juggling club when a guy who is a juggler who used to work in a bar came in to show us some of the basic techniques.

Definitely want to learn more, so if you could recommend any props I should think of buying or sites to visit to learn more tricks, then that would be great! I have an online Juggling store and so if you know of any Flair wholesalers then please let me know also as I might try and stock some Flair items for my store (UK only)!

Flairco are the guy's who make the plastic bottles, but really the only way to learn is with glass (no fun if it doesn't smash) and working with guys who are better than you, until you get good anyway.

http://www.barproducts.com have multiple order discounts. They also stock the bottle cheaper than flairco.

There is a juggling store in the UK that stock the bottles too, but not sure what it is off hand. Although I do remember that it was cheaper for me to buy a bottle from the US and have it shipped over than buy it here. About £19 here compared to $18 there.

But I must agree that nothing beats playing with glass. Better get drinking that vodka!!!

Just thought.

Which glass bottles do you prefer? I used to love the old Smirnoff bottle, but am not impressed with the new shape.

Bacardi bottles aren't too bad either, but are heavy for bounce tricks.

The UK juggling shop is Oddballs, http://www.oddballs.co.uk ? Have a reasonable range of flair practice bottles. What I want is a wine bottle equivalent anyone ever see one?

I've not seen a wine bottle. But the flairco bottle is very similar.

You could try a rubber stage prop wine bottle. That could work.

Joey,

You have your account set to private, so that myspace link doesn't go anywhere.

Just incase any of you flair guys are interested and haven't spotted it yet, 9 times world champion Rodrigo Delpech has recently released a new flair DVD called Flair on Fire Vol 1.

Its advertised as a dvd for intermediate to advanced flair bartenders, so the stuff is gonna be pretty tough.

I should be getting mine within the next few days (assuming Royal Mail end their strike sooner rather than later). So will give a quick review once I get it. Also, I've ordered the 3 disc dvd set released by Christian Delpech (Rodrigo's 25 time world champion brother). This is advertised as having stuff for beginners right through to advanced bartenders.

For those interested you should check out http://www.barproducts.com and hit the videos and dvds link.

Enjoy!
