I got exposed to contact juggling a few yrs ago.
Not that great at it though. Basically the butterfly and a couple of
the easier hand to hand transfers

I cannot contact juggle to save my life. I tried it a couple times and I sucked. If you want to see some really great band inspiring contact juggling though, search for Beans in youtube. He is really great.

Well, as of now, the promo is spend 50 dollars or more and get contact with tyas frantz. I plan to get darwins TT DVD, so i'll recieve contact for free.

What kind of balls should I order? I'm kind of being suckered into to spending more money. I know I'll need some acrylic balls, but what are good things to practice with?

start off with a lacrosse ball. ( it has the weight you need. Tennis balls
are way too light and just won't cut it).
Get a feel for it with a lacrosse ball then move to acrylic.
Acrylics are a bit expensive, so practice over a bed or carpet to avoid the ball from getting too scratched up.

Many people I know use a three inch stage ball. It has a better weight than the acrylic balls.

Good thing I play lacrosse and have tons of 'em sitting around. Would a billiard ball work as well?

It might. It seems like it would be kind of small. It might crack if you drop it too.

Tennis balls are too light.

Me and my brother have been using croquet balls. They seem to work just fine, and even though they have been dropped hundreds of times, haven't cracked.

What resource are you learning from? My friend wants to get into it, and you always seem to know what you're talking about. Thanks.
