Another Amazing Review of the Tossaball Phat Tyre 32-Panel Juggling Balls From Rhys Thomas, a Professional Juggler from Portland, OR

We get a lot of great reviews of our products from professional jugglers, and it always warms our hearts to know jugglers out there are getting the most possible use in the most extreme environments out of their Flying Clipper juggling props

Rhys Thomas is a juggler from Portland, OR. He recently got his hands on some of our Phat Tyre 32-Panel Juggling Balls and he had some absolutely fantastic words to share about them! Read here:

I’ve juggled Flying Clipper bags professionally for over 20 years. During this run of kinetic employment, I’ve put various Flying Clipper bags to the test of street shows, stage shows and festival shows. I’ve had Flying Clipper bags that have gotten wet, sat under heavy props, been run over (oops), stepped on by livestock, got teethed on by babies and all survived to be juggled another day.

On St. Lawrence Island, Alaska in February, just uphill from the frozen whale head on the beach, I set my bowling ball down and it cracked from being so cold and brittle. My fingers were stiff and the clubs inflicted pain with each catch, but my Flying Clipper Tossaball Hybrid bags stayed supple and soft as ever.

In Abu Dhabiit was 113 degrees Fahrenheit and oh so humid. My Flying Clipper Tossaball Phat Tyre bags performed beautifully even as they soaked up the sweat dripping down my arms.

The only problem I’ve had has been rats eating them during the late Fall when the cold drives the little nibblers into my studio. Imagine my delight when the Phat Tyre bags (which hold no seed and smell more rubbery than like yummy human sweat) survived unmolested this mouse season.


“It takes a lot of balls to make it as a juggler. I get mine at Flying Clipper.”
