Eight Rings for Isolation Juggling
The Eight Ring prop was first created and crafted in 2009 by Renegade Juggling. It is meant to be used as an isolation prop and is not intended for toss juggling or normal ring juggling. The original shape was the Regular Eight Ring, and since then we have added several different unique shapes and sizes:
Regular Eight Ring
The Regular Eight Ring was the first model created. It is based on a prototype, made from welding two hollow renegade solo rings together. This eight ring is the heaviest version. It’s easier to use than lighter rings because of its heavier weight, and it has very good inertia making it flow superbly well. However, the weight makes this model harder to practice with for long periods
- length: 29.125 inches, width: 15.375 inches, weight: 340 grams, thickness: 3/16, ring width: 1.5 inches, material: white polypropylene
Skinny Eight Ring
The Skinny Eight Ring was the second model made, and has a thinner width (1.25 inch instead of 1.5 inch). This model was made for the Japanese market, where jugglers hands and arms are generally smaller. This ring is lighter (288 grams vs. the thicker eight ring which is 340 grams), but still has enough weight to have the inertia needed to flow soothly. It is the most popular size.
- length: 29.125 inches, width: 15.375 inches, weight: 288 grams, thickness: 3/16, ring width: 1.25 inches, material: white polypropylene
Baby Eight Ring
The Baby Eight rings was the third version made, and is much smaller in all dimensions. It is intended for small jugglers or children who what to learn eight ring and do not have the strength for the Regular or Skinny eight ring. It is hard to keep a even flow on this ring as the inertia is to little, so opt for a bigger ring if you can manage the weight and size.
- length: 24 inches, width: 12.5 inches, weight: 169 grams, thickness: 1/8, ring width: 1.4 inches, material: white polypropylene
iSo Eight Ring
A combination ring where you can isolate the smaller ring within one side of the eight ring. This ring is typically used as a single manipulation isolation ring and makes for some very interesting illusions! While it could be used as a pair, it would be challenging since the weight of each end is different. Note that if you are ordering it with other props, this type of ring has to be shipped separately.
- length: 29.125 inches, width: 15.375 inches, weight: 370 grams, thickness: 3/16, ring width: 1.5 inches, material: white polypropylene
Eight-ball Eight Ring
The eight ball ring is an experimental version of the eight ring. This oddly sized eight ring is a harder shape to work with than with both halves of the ring the same size, but for advanced 8 ringers it can be very interesting.
- length: 24 inches, width big ring: 15 3/8, width small ring: 10.0 inches, weight: 290 grams, thickness: 3/16, ring width: 1.5 inches, material: white polypropylene

these things are awesome the only problem i had is when they arrived they where warped a bit and if you put them on a non flat surface they will warp to that shape and it takes a bit of time to get them to normal but every one loved them at Oregon country fair.

The one and only. Had to wait 6 weeks or so because they were out of stock, but these are amazing. Lots of practicing to do!

I like the softness and feeling that it conveys to the public. Although it is something big for me (I am 1.72 cm.), It adapts to my needs.
