I'm wondering which set is more comfortable and provides a better grip:

Multiplying Balls (Green) by Vernet
or
Multiplying Balls by Vernet

I anyone has any other suggestions in that price range, I'm all ears!

Same grip, different color. The grip WILL hurt your hand. These are a very hard, slippery plastic that you will have to dig into your hands to keep hold of.

They do look nice though and their are a buttload of accessories that go with them, from a flash production of 4 balls, to a mini zombie, to a silk to ball gimmick. Search the SOC and you shall find what I am talking about.

I thought the Multiplying Balls (Green) by Vernet were rubber?

I'm pretty sure they're hard plastic like the other Vernet balls. The only rubber ones I know of are Fantasio (silicone)

Oops, not Fantasio. I meant Fakini. I checked here and Penguin didn't seem to have them. Try www.dennymagic.com

The Fakini balls are well worth the price. They are the best I've used (I stopped checking out new ones though after getting these).

I've had poor luck with Arlen Studio's product quality. For a few dollars difference, I'd stick with Fakini's unless I had a chance to compare both of them together in person.

The 1 3/4 Fakini set is only $88, not $100. That's only $20 more than the other set.

Fakini's rock! Really. Little to no slipping which helps in practice.

I have that Vernet green set and they are hard plastic. The other not so nice thing is that they have little "pimples" that in turn have sharp, little pimples on top. They are like sandpaper. They literally were sanding the skin off of my fingers. I sanded them lightly and that helped but I gave up on them several months ago. I'm going to get the Fakinis at some point in the near future.

I have those, but they are very slippery and hard to get a firm grip on.
