Vinyl Beanbag Juggling Ball (Extra-Small)
These are the most common jugging balls, and are made of a vinyl (PVC) coated cloth and filled with bird seed. The beanbag ball (though never actually made with beans) is great for juggling because the ball will not roll when dropped, nor will it bounce off another ball if there is a mid-air collision. This ball is the softest type of juggling ball, with a very squishy feel. There is a wide variety of juggling balls that look essentially the same as this ball. The difference between these various beanbags is the quality of fabric and thread, how well they are sewn together, and the precision of the beanbag weights. Juggling balls made in China tend to be of very low quality, which we do not sell. Our vinyl beanbag juggling balls comes in 5 sizes.
Extra-Small: 56 mm (2.25 inch) diameter, 75 grams
Comparable to the size of a racquetball. An adult juggler can easily hold 3 (and maybe even 4) balls in one hand. This is a good size for numbers juggling with 6-9 balls, as some jugglers like to start the pattern with 4 balls situated flatly in one hand rather than stacked like a pyramid (with 3 balls resting on the palm and one ball ontop of them). This size is also good for children under 4.5 ft tall, as they can comfortably hold 2 balls in one hand.
Small: 68 mm (2 5/8 inch) diameter, 130 gramsComparable to the size of a tennis ball. This size is the most common sized juggling bag and is perfect for 3-7 ball juggling. This ball could also be used for children if they are over 4.5 ft tall, and is a good size for all adult beginners.
Large: 72 mm (2.8 inch) diameter, 155 gramsThe large beanbag ball works best for jugglers over 5 ft 8 in tall.
Extra-Large: 83 mm (3.25 inch) diameter, 230 gramsThe extra-large beanbag ball is great for jugglers who are over 6 ft tall and have large hands and arms. In general, 230 grams is too heavy for average sized people.
Jumbo: 100 mm (4 inch) diameter, 495 gramsThis ball is for clowning, magic tricks or other applications where you want a really huge juggling ball. It is too heavy for long-term juggling, but can be nice size for a joke or a trick.

Exactly what I ordered. Long tossing is fun with these for sure. Classic cheap ball. I have a larger size of these and they've lasted for about 2 years now. Very durable.

My last review was supposed to have 5 stars. Awesome Ball.

I took a lot of things into consideration when purchasing these balls. Because I am a beginner with lady hands, I picked smaller balls. I really want fancy pretty ones, but because I am easily distracted, I went for these cheapy ones in case I lose interest, I won't lose much money. I also chose white so I can paint them whatever color I want. I threw them around outside for a while on cement and dirt and they actually wiped off pretty nicely. I love the weight and size, they are perfect for me for now. I am worried about the seams...though they seem strong, slamming them around all over the place I'm afraid the filling might try to escape....but I think if I paint them the way I want to, the paint will give it some reinforcement. Anyway, I love them. Great price. Great quality.

Had a hard time finding anything comparable to these bags by RJ. The size / weight allow for many uses that come in handy when discovering new options, new techniques and designing / choreographing transitions. They are similar to using pencil on a drawing board that erases nicely when brainstorming or pioneering new directions! Easy creative freedom with no penalty or hardcore hangups. That all being said, aside from this use, they are quite silly little floating puffs. For actual juggling inside of patterns with known exchanges, heavy and substantial props engage the root instinct where these are too undetectable. Occasionally they bounce out of the hand just due to lack of heft to cause enough settle to throw again. They are what they are, and if you have use, these are actually perfect.
