I have the following sets of 3:

1) PX3 All Floro Clubs with Molded Handle (Fluorescent UV reactive solid Red).

2) PX3 All Floro Clubs with Molded Handle (Fluorescent UV reactive solid Green).

3) PX3 Pirouette Clubs (Yellow with wrapped white handles).

4) PX3 Vegas Special Clubs (White with Orange metal spraying decoration and white handles).

5) Dube European Dual Arc Clubs (Red body, center and end arcs, with black tape and black handles).

6) Dube Color Change Lighted Clubs (slow color change spectrum).

7) Dube Klassic™ American Clubs (Solid White)

I am using the PX3 All Floro and the Pirouette & Vegas clubs to improve my 3 club patterns and when trying to rescue my lost ability to do 5 clubs. They spin with speed and are great for double and triple rotations.

The Dube Dual Arc clubs are slightly slower but have a beautiful consistent spin that helps me with my endurance.

Please share your own sets and your preferences. I am looking to buy some Radical Fish…any advice?

With thanks to all!

I never got on with radical fish, I tried to like them but I found they were hard on my hands. They have a thin, plasticy handle which thwacks.
I believe "Feeding the fish", a very snazzy juggling group named themselves after these clubs - some people love them.

I use pirouettes. Lovely balance and they look great. I've probably got ten sets of clubs around somewhere, no idea what most are called as they were bought so long ago.
The fire clubs are Henrys. Great fire torches.

So far just the one. I have a set of Dube European Dual Arc Clubs. For our anniversary last year my girlfriend at the time got them for me to encourage my juggling.

While doing my UV show in the theatre this week I was doing my club juggling routine in the dark with beautifully UV decorated clubs.
"Nice clubs" I thought "lovely to look at and they handle great"
What were they........Radical fish!

I didn't even know I owned a set of these and I laughed out loud thinking of the negative comment I left earlier.
They really are very nice but a tad too 'floaty' for me though this would be great for number juggling.

Thank you for sharing this story!

Those are the boys! I got UV vinyl and decorated them so they were muti-coloured.
I didn't find them as thwacky on the hands as I remembered. They do have a thin handle which doesn't have the cushioning of the pirouette but they are still very comfortable. As I said, they are floaty, in a nice way, great for numbers.

I just read this on the site;

The Fully Fluorescent Fish feature pro wrap handles which are softer and smoother than the classic poly wraps.

This might explain why they are more comfortable than I remember.

Let's see...

3 Stu Raynolds bottle clubs

6 Stu Raynolds Dick Franco clubs

6 Dube light weight Klassic XL American clubs

8 Dube standard weight Klassic American clubs

6 modified Dube European clubs (thinner handles then normal, and round knobs)

6 long handled Radical Fish (white with blue decorations)

7 long handled Radical Fish (fluorescent orange body and handle)

I've owned lots of others over the years, but the above are the one's I still own. I currently juggle mostly with the Radical Fish.

I first learned on a set of Gemini Juggling clubs, then juggled with Harry Lind clubs for a short while. In 1981 I met Brian Dube, and started juggling his clubs.

I still work with three Juggle Bug 'American Clubs'.
They're a fatter body styled Club.
I always liked their colour,..
a strong, pure white,
with a rubber coated black knob.
They're a one-piece double mold casted Club.
,....a bit softer then Dube' however.

I also play with a set of Dube 'American' Clubs.
Again, his single piece Club.
I've cut the handles off
and inserted my own, turned wooden handles.
I like the 'meaty' heavy feel.

Fingerflinger, I'm curious about your Stu Raynold's Clubs.
Are they fiberglass?
Are they heavy?
Are they one-piece?
Are they hard on the hands?
Are they comfortable to juggle?
Years ago, I talked with Stu Raynolds about his Clubs.
At that time, he was only making a Harry Lind size Club.
I wished I'd bought a set,...
but I was short on the spare change at the time(!).
,...he was a really nice and knowledgible fellow.

,...Somewhere, I've still three of my first Clubs,
as well.
Made from plans, out of Carlo's book,...
Clorox bottles on taped broom sticks(!).
They were great,
,..a "Magic Café green"!
smiles,

Gallagher,

The Stu Raynold's bottle clubs weigh 10.5 ounces, which is a little heavy for me. Also, because of their shape, they are a little bottom heavy, and don't handle quite the same as a traditionally shaped juggling club. They are best for a short, simple juggling routine.

The Dick Franco model Stu Raynold's clubs are much lighter weight...only 6.5 ounces, and are great to juggle with. I performed with them for a number of years before switching over to plastic clubs.

All my Stu Raynold's clubs are made of all fiberglass. The lighter weight clubs are easier on the hands than the heavier clubs. I guess they could be considered a one piece club, because they do not have a wood dowel for a handle. However, they may have been constructed from several fiberglass parts, and then assembled during the manufacturing process.

I have 4 Dube European dual arcs in red with the standard silver handles. I figured it would be a long time until I started working on 5, and could buy a 5th if I ever got to that bridge. I still can't do anything but a simple cascade with 3, so I'm good for now.
