A unicylist juggler friend of mine wants me to find out where to buy white rubber juggling balls. He wants to juggle 6 of these while riding his unicycle.
He told me that the ball must be able to bounce at the same height it was dropped. He wants them at 2 inches in diameter each. I'm not sure if rubber or silicone is the best for his purpose.
If you were to juggle 6 balls all at the same time, what size would you use?
Please tell me of a reliable website where I can order these.
Any info? Thanks!

I really don't think that 100% rebound is possible Lou...

The closest, in my opinion, that you will get is with Dube Silicone...And they are gonna cost you a pretty penny (around $40 a piece)...

They give around 85-90% rebound, which is amazing...

http://www.dube.com

And I would use the 2.25 inch.

Good luck pal.

Piper has it right......because of a nasty little thing called gravity nothing will return to its dropping point (unless you provide a little force or are performing in outer space).

Silicone is the best way to go....but the cost can be prohibitive. I've never bought from them but http://www.jugglingstore.com has silicone as well as some cheaper bouncing balls.

Silicone balls are the closest you will get to perfection. They come in 2.25", 2.5", and 3". Juggling six balls on a unicycle is harder than juggling 7 balls on a unicycle, but what makes no sence to me is how did he get so good without knowing where to get a quality ball? What ball does he practice this impossible feat with? Go to http://www.dube.com and tell him I would love to see this amazing juggler.

You could get these... http://www.jugglingstore.com/store/detail.aspxID=485 .
I've bought from that store before and my stuff came very quickly.The balls would be slightly bigger than 2 inches,but they are made by play juggling of italy(The people who make the PX3 juggling clubs) and they have a 90% bounce ratio.
Check em out!

One Man,

Gravity is not the culprit for a lack of 100% bounce, in fact gravity is the force that allows juggling to work. Force bounces excepted. The force(s) that means you won't get 100% rebound are friction. These comprise the air resistance (negligible) and the molecular friction as an object hits and then rebounds. Which is why squash balls (racquet balls) get hot when you hit them against a wall. If 100% rebound was possible then you would be defying entropy and you would have perpetual motion. You could then make a machine that is powered by this and solve the worlds energy crisis.

How about the law of deminishing returns, or is that ecconomics? How about inertia, I was an electrical engineer, but not a very good one.

The law of diminishing returns is about arguing with a lady. Inertia is the feeling you get in the morning when you wake up and know you should be doing something but really don't want to. What have these to do with the price of fish?
