This ball is like the seed to your contact juggling journey. It will help you grow as a performer/casual contact juggler. Start from the basics with this ball. Learn your cradles on both hands really well, then some hand to hand/palm transfers, and then some arm rolls and this ball will take you into some really fun advanced body rolls and aid you in some really impressive Jacknife stalls and head rolls. As the description says, this is the ball most contact jugglers love. That's no lie. Acrylics are great for performances, but if you just want to learn and have fun, this is the ball for you. Light weight and rubbery, so when you drop it during a Bridge roll practice, it won't crush your face :D :P If I'm left alone in a room with one of these stage balls, I can entertain myself for hours. Literally. You really get lost in practicing a trick, or just developing your flow. These balls are also great for practicing and executing convincing isolations (as long as your audience isn't directly in front of you). You can buy 2 or 3 of them, and learn 3 ball contact/body roll juggling, which is also really impressive and fun. If your goal is performing and making da monies, you'll want to learn on this but eventually upgrade to a 100mm acrylic. But as I said, this ball is FUN AS F***.
