MMX balls, are made with a soft PVC exterior shell, and filled with millet. This ball is cross between traditional fabric bean bag and a hollow stage ball. The soft outer PVC shell of the balls is durable, water proof and brighly colored.
The millet filling allows the ball to have a dead bounce, so it do not roll away when dropped and feel very similar to a bean bag ball. The ball comes in four sizes depend on your use and size of your hands.
MMX 62mm (105 grams, 2.44 inches)
This is the smallest size 2.44 inches in diameter. This is a good size for adult doing numbers juggling 7-9 balls, or
for children under 4 feet tall, i.e. small hands. For children they need to comfortably hold two balls in one hand. Some common sizes of balls to give you a idea of sizes; golf ball 42.6 mm racquet ball 57 mm and tennis ball 65mm
MMX 67mm (135 grams, 2.63 inch)
This size balls is just about the same size as a tennis balls, and for most adults over 5 feet tall can hold 3 in one hand it is a good size for 5 ball juggling. You can also use it for 6-7 balls juggling as most people start with a pyramid of balls in for seven balls, so in one hand, 3 in your palm and one on top of the three balls.
MMX 70mm (150 grams, 2.75 inches)
The 70mm ball is just a bit smaller than a baseball (hard 73mm) and it a nice size for adults doing 3-5 balls, and are over 5.5 feet tall. With a bit larger hands than the jugglers who fit the 67 mm ball. Or for all sized adults doing just 3 ball juggling. In general larger sized balls look better for 3 ball juggling, and since you only need to hold two in one hand to start juggling you can accommodate a larger sized ball.
MMX 75mm (180 grams, 2.95 inches)
If you are over six feet tall and have large hands this is a good size ball. In general this ball is too heavy for smaller sized people. But if you are tall with big arms and hands this ball is ideal.
Many jugglers ask what colors should I get? That is subjective to what you like. In general if the balls are all the same color, a person watching cannot really see how many you are juggling. With sets of balls in mixed color the viewer can easily count the balls. Some jugglers like mixed colored set so they can keep track of one or several balls to help them with doing tricks, juggle in patterns that complement the mixed colors or just prefer the look of mixed colored balls.
All MMX balls are made with a plug that fits in to the fill hole of the ball. This plug is just held in by the friction of PVC and can move. Over time the plug might start to come out of the ball, if this happens just lightly press it back in. If the plug starts to go too deep in the ball you can pinch the ball and force the plug back up so it is flush with the outside of the ball. If by mistake or somehow the plug get pushed all the way into the ball, contact us and we will send you a replacement plug.
