Hello everyone!

I like juggling AND magic.. So I would also love to use balls (clubs..) for magic.
Do you know tricks in which I can use balls?..I still own the old stratosphere / joker tube and am really happy with it.

Thanks for all your ideas, Dirk:-)

Depends on what size you mean. You could use the clubs for certain things. I think instead of going for an effect you could use with clubs or balls, see what effects you can enhance with juggling.

Say you were doing Andrew Mayne's Voodoo Box. You could juggle the umbrellas and then get on with the trick. Just enhance the magic with juggling.

I usually juggle my final loads from my cups and balls routine.

Ok these are possibilities.. Actually I just think about regular size juggling balls.
Sure, I can enhance my magic with juggling, but I'm also looking for some routines juggling and doing magic.. perhaps vanishing balls, changing color, production, levitating, bounce no bounce..

Thanks for all your ideas, Dirk:-)

Change Bag, Mirror Box, Square Circle, or dove pan could make your juggling balls appear, vanish, and/or change color. Have fun working on that, it sounds fun and original.

They're probably a bit heavy for conventional thread work, but you could do a Zombie routine.

Ok this could be an idea - thanks!

Another thought was to use clubs for something like bottle production - Any idea how to make clubs like this..?

If your doing tricks with balls, you need to seriously reevaluate the way you look at yourself. :D


Anyway, grap yourself a Topit. While juggling balls, they can dissappear one at a time, if you have a ball dropper, they can then reappear one at a time.

Dan Tong has a holdout. use this and you can make things appear and dissapear with some misdirection. [Edit] High caliber magic also has a holster you can use if you are using like 10 of them. or even just one.

So do you think, I can use a Topit for more than one juggling ball?.. Is there a special setting you could recommend?
Isn't a holdout just used for cards?..What is best to use?

This JemmyTalksalot is cool!..Do you have more links about that kind of ball magic?..Where can I learn this..?

Lot of question;-) ..Thank you!
