Beanbag?
Club?
Silicone?
Ring?
Diablo?
Other?

My answers?

Beanbag: Todd Smith X-Large...GREAT feel, and SUPERIOR visablity!
Club: Dube, followed closely by whoever makes the "Fish"
Silicone: Dube, without a doubt!
Ring: Fratallini (sp?)...I LOVE the quality in these rings!
Diablo: Again, Dube...I've had a black and white harelquin for 9 years and the thing is STILL in perfect balance...

Other: My Fyreballs are like 7 years old, and other than replacing the internal wicking, these props are in PERFECT condition..Definately 'built to last' and a great investment!


So, how's about you?

Beanbag: Butterfingers Squoshball, cheap but does the job
Club: Henry's Pirouette, the right speed and weight for me (Beard make fish)
Silicone: don't use them
Ring: The Renegade rings have less wobble than the Fratellini but I don't use rings
Diabolo: My favourite are probably Henry's but I use Butterfingers cheap large ones because theybounce better. (I would imagine your Harlequin Diabolos are actually by Babache not Dube or Dube are infringing on Babache copyright)

There are way too many other props for me to list all my favourites.

You were right, Nigel, my Diablo IS a Babache that I bought through Dube...I've had this thing for YEARS and it's still great...And trust me, I abused the heck out of it when I was first learning throws/catches...

Al---I, too, have a porch/store room full of crap!...LOL

Beanbags: I have 3 sets of Fergies (8 larger size, 9 medium sized and a set of 10 small numbers sized)

Clubs: I am a Renegade man since... forever. I have 9-95mm and a set of 5 - 85mm Tom Renegade has been a friend fo mine for a long time and I am a big supporter of Renegade products

Silicone ; Yes, lots of it... especially in breasts. Oh, sorry, wrong kind of silicone. I use 5 larger Dube silicones

Rings: Dube

Diabolos; Learned on Babache Harlequins, but moved on to Henry's Circus once I started doing more than 1

Other: I have 5 Nils Pils "Hat Manipuilator" bowlers that I got from Renegade.

I also have a basement full of way too many other juggling props. Having been juggling for over 25 years and professionally for 20 of those... you can imagine... I have way more stuff then I need, but I cannot bring myself to get rid of a lot of it, much to my wife's chagrin.

I hear you brother!

I have a garage devoted to equipment. There is barely room for the 5 family bikes. The rest is juggling equipment. That doesn't mention the stuff in the attic or the car or the rest of the house.

I'd list it all but I'd get sore fingers from all the typing.

I hear ya Nigel,
We should get together and have the world's largest juggling yard sale. Of course, it'd be a hell of a commute for at least one of us.

A juggling yard sale is a joke. I have a friend who's apartment was burglarized, so when he discovered that his apartment was broken into he went to look for his juggling bag, and sure enough it was gone. He was very upset that all his favorite toys were missing, until he looked behind his couch, and there he found all of his juggling props. The burglars had no use for his juggling props, but he needed the bag for his camera, and CD collection, so Al a juggling yard sale might not be such a good idea.

You are absolutely correct Al, it was a joke.
Juggling props are sure not "normal yard sale items", nor does your normal/average burglar know how to juggle.
Besides that is kind of the reason I have too much stuff anyway... I can't bring myself to get rid of it.
