The 95-mm Px4 Hybrid, is our latest evolution of the Play-Renegade combination club. It features the Play Juggling Evo smooth grip handle and fiberglass Px4 dowel. These parts are combined with the quintessential Renegade 95mm body, flat cap and flat-bottom knob. This club is 19.5 inches (49.5 cm) long and weighs 221 grams. Its shorter length (faster spin) and wide body (greater visibility) are well-suited for club passing. The body is blow-molded and weighs 90 grams, which makes it five grams heavier than a Play Sirius or Quantum, body. These clubs come with injection-molded knobs and caps manufactured by Play Juggling.

Several variations of the club can be special-ordered. A lightweight option can reduce the club weight from 221 grams to 211 grams. This reduction is achieved by making the clubs with Renegade glue-on crepe rubber caps and knobs, in place of screw-on, injection-molded parts. The other option is to make the club with Px3 instead of Px4 fiberglass dowels. Some jugglers prefer flexible plastic dowels over stiffer fiberglass ones. The Px3 doweled club weighs 225 grams. All models are available in nine body colors with white handles. Center rings, knobs and caps can be ordered in white or black.

LighTrix is the leading electronic LED prop maker. Renegade Juggling and LighTrix are co-developing many new exciting LED props. Currently, we offer pixel poi, pixel hoops, pixel staffs, pixel dragon staffs, and pixel juggling sticks. Juggling balls and clubs are in the testing phase and will be ready for sale soon. With a pixelated LED prop, you can program each individual LED to produce images or photos when the prop is spun, twirled or thrown.

LighTrix products all run on the same software system. It enables you to synchronize the LED lights to your music, in a way that is very similar to how video and audio are edited together (e.g., iMovie). The software editor works on both Mac and Window operating systems. With this editor, you can import your own photographs or use the large database of photos and light images that come pre-loaded with the software. One very cool feature is that you can play the program from any point in time. For example, in rehearsals you can practice problem sequences without having to run through the whole program from the start.

You can control your program either with a handheld wifi fob or with the LighTrix app on your smart phone, tablet or laptop. This wifi-based app lets you run your program from the theater lighting board, whether it is off- or on-stage. LighTrix offers a DMX conversion box to convert the prop’s wifi signals into DMX radio frequencies. With this converter, the remote fob, smartphone, tablet or laptop connects directly to the theater’s DMX lighting channels.

Juggling balls come in various sizes. Jugglers select the correct size based on the number of balls they plan to juggle and the dimension of their hands. Most juggling balls are made in metric sizes. This adds some complexity in making the right choice, since we are more accustomed to measurements in inches rather than millimeters. The diagram above shows hand length from your wrist to the tip of your fingers, and the depicted ball size represents what you should be able to hold comfortably.

Beginning jugglers working with three or four balls need to be able to easily hold two balls in one hand, and the third ball (and maybe a fourth) in the other. To start the juggling pattern, you must be able to grip the first ball you are going to throw with two fingers and your thumb. The diagrams above show proper sizes based on a hand’s dimensions. As you can see from the graphic, bigger hands can hold a much larger ball.

Intermediate jugglers who want to juggle five balls need to be able to hold three in each hand. Size now becomes more important as your hand can quickly run out of room when holding three balls. The chart above shows a comfortable size for three balls in one hand.

Advanced jugglers usually already know what sizes they like for how many balls they are going to juggle. When juggling more than five balls, you can use several techniques for the start. Some jugglers make a pyramid of balls in their hand, with three on the bottom and the fourth ball on top. Other jugglers prefer to hold all four balls flat in one hand. The pyramid start allows you to use a large-size ball than the flat start. If you are buying balls as a gift, take note of how your juggler starts his/her juggling pattern.
