I think I have a source for something like that as well.

Maybe I could start a store -- Balls R Us!

Seriously, take your cups to PetSmart.

I'm going to experiment with ways of cleaning Lacrosse balls after I get back from Louisville!

Matt the brand I found is called hyperdog...

They fit many of my cups very well. Some more snug then others.

Maybe not perfect for Paul Fox cups, however they could work. They fit in the foxes just a little snug.

They fit all my other lacrosse ball sized cups just fine.

A couple hundred bounces on the pavement may take em down just enough to fix in a fox comfortably.

You may want to check them out.. I got them from Target in the pet care area.

Thanks Shawn. I'm currently using Fab Fruit, but I might get bored of the Fab Fruit and then I will go out and look for these balls.

How is the fab fruit.. I got some of the lemons but they were part of the "small batch"

They were too small for me and I sent them back. I wish I could get my hands on 4 of the bigger size.

I really like it. The only problem is that the fruit is a bit heavy, so if you load from your jacket then it might distort your clothing a bit.

Also, I would recommend getting a few types of fruit. From far away, the lemons sort of look like a regular yellow ball (just like a real lemon).

Has anyone thought of using a RealLemon Squeeze lemon as a final load? There are comic possibilities with this.

On a serious note -- do you think there are people who would be willing to pay for lacrosse balls that were brand new and were certified as fitting into a Paul Fox cup?


Yes, absolutely! (I'm one of them.)

I realize this is a very old thread, but the problem (need) remains perennial....

Go to a school where lacrosse is played -- like Bill said, a private high school is a good bet. Walk around the edges of the field looking especially in tall grass and bushes. They get lost ALL the time, and nobody counts them at the end of practice.

I don't think that would be a wise idea in this day and age Smile. It would look kind of suspicious
of someone hanging around a school fence.

Took a lacrosse ball last night that didn't quite fit my RNT II Paul Fox cups. So I applied some science..
I boiled the ball for about 45 minutes, 3 of them. They went straight from the freezer from the burner.
2 of them ended up fitting just fine. One didn't. By late this afternoon all 3 didn't fit again. It was worth
a try for you.

Do they need to be any special color? My son just told me he knows where 2 boxes are at home. We work out on the water and won't
be in for a week or so more. I'll be happy to dig them out, they are actually Glow in the Dark lacrosse balls. If I get back and they do fit
I'll be happy to send you a few sets. Are the Paul Fox cups you are speaking of are the RNT II or Danny Dews?

All the best,
Mad Jake Sr. and Jr.

Arn't Paul Fox cups sized to take baseballs?
Less than 2% of reported UFO's turn out to be actual interplanetary vehicles.

As long as the baseball is the size of a lacrosse ball, then yes Smile
