White PU Beanbags Six Panel (72 mm, 145 grams)
These white polyurethane (PU) bags are our best quality beanbag. They are made from Japanese Ultrafabric with a PU coating. Polyurethane-coated cloth is much more durable than vinyl coated cloth, and has a superior grip and feel. Ultrafabric is made for outdoor use and will not fade or peel like a vinyl (PVC) fabric. These balls have at least double the lifespan as those made with vinyl-coated cloth. The ball is constructed with an inner lycra bag, and then a six-panel outer PU shell. This construction using an inner bag makes for a stiffer feel and a longer lasting ball. The ball is sewn with high quality thread, filled with millet and sold in precisely matched weights.
The use of PU-coated cloth has become much more prevalent in recent years, although it is important to note that there is a wide range in fabric quality across different models. High quality fabric has several layers of different coatings, with a outer coating of polycarbonate. These high end fabrics are only made in Japan. Cheap copies of this type of fabric are made in China, but the quality of these is comparable to PVC-coated cloth.
Our PU balls come in 5 different sizes: 60 mm (80 grams), 64 mm (115 grams) 68 mm (125 grams) 70 mm (135 grams) and 72 mm (145 grams). All sizes are good for juggling between 3-9 balls, with the smallest size better for high numbers (more than 7). For numbers juggling of more than 5 balls, the 72 mm (145 gram) ball is a bit on the heavy size, so unless you are at least 6 ft tall consider using one of the smaller sized balls.
