I am debating getting some Henry's pirouettes or white silicones. Does anybody have any input? I think that I would use the clubs more, but I'm not sure. Thanks, Philip

Philip, this is a personal choice. Silicone balls are great! Are you a bounce juggler? Do you perform? Are you going to be performing outside? It's sometimes hard to find a proper bounce surface to perform on unless you bring your own. Floors with tiles or cracks will give you a different form of misdirection!

I love Henry's clubs. See, I am holding one of my sets? With clubs you have to consider ceiling height and wind.
Hope this helps?

Thanks, I am leaning towards clubs, and pirouettes seem to be the best. Although the classics look nice, too. Thanks, Philip

Hi there,

May I suggest that you buy Renegade bounce balls instead of silicone balls. Silicones usually have an 81% return while the bounce balls have an 89% return. Plus they are $10.00 per ball and the silicones are usually $35.00 or more.

I've had both and now use the bounce balls and don't plan on ever going back. The price and quality just make the bounce balls the logical choice to me.

Now that I've finished that rant, I'd have to say that, I would get the clubs instead. I assume you already have balls. Why not try something new which will offer a whole new world of possibilities?

Whatever you do, have fun!

I think clubs will give you much more fun!

Also, I second ns' opinion that standard bounce balls are perfectly good for the amateur juggler. Silicones have a few impressive features (which IMHO more than make for the slightly worse bounce) but they just cost too much!

I love silicone, but I think "most" people would get more mileage out of a set of clubs.
Every pro juggler (ball juggler) I know uses silicone balls. If there was something comparable out there, this would not be the case.
