Hello,

I am looking to buy a manipulation hat, preferably a Nils Poll topper ( top hat) or similar in blue. Only problem is that nowhere in the US seems to stock these. I found a few on british websites and a site called jcpjuggling.com had a similar item but does not seem to be functioning anymore. Does anyone know of a possible source?

thanks

tom

Up until recently, they were sellling/stocking Nils Pol hats. I bought 5 from them within the last 6 months.

There are also these relatively new products on the market. This company was at the IJA convention, this past year. I met the owners and checked out the hats. Nice people and a very decent product. It's not exactly like a Poll hat, but very close. The lower price (almost 1/2 the cost of a Poll hat) makes them very interesting. The biggest difference is these hats are a little less rigid, but this might be an easy fix by spraying some sort of stiffener or starch. They are made the same "triple stack" way that the Poll hats are made, that gives them more mass/weight than a regular hat. Overall a decent product for the price and a nice alternative to the Poll hat. Good luck with your search.

I thought that I would go ahead and post here that Tom has been trying unsuccessfully to order hats from the last link I posted JCP juggling. It is looking like they might be out of business. He is unable to reach them and all the number I had on their business card were disconnected when he called them. Tom and I have been exchanging PMs on this, but I just wanted to update everyone before anyone tried to order anything from them. Sorry for the outdated info. I just saw/met these guys at the IJA con in July. Sorry to hear that they might already be out of biz.
