The very light shell is coupled with a sand filling to give the ball a pronounced Russian effect on the catch. The sand quickly goes to the bottom of the ball when caught, which causes a pronounced Russian effect. The lighter the shell weight in comparison to the filling weight the more effect you get. In general this type of ball is mostly used for numbers juggling, but has become much more popular for all types of toss juggling.
One disadvantage of this type of light weight Russian ball is that it is easily affected by wind, making it difficult to juggle with outdoors. The ball shell is soft, but not too soft or thin to be affected by altitude or heat changes (some very light shelled Russian balls will become dented if you fly with them.) The texture of the ball is very smooth, not sticky but also not slippery, perfect for multi-ball releases from one hand. The ball is made with a plug flush to its surface, giving the entire ball an even texture and feel with no exposed/raised plug. Balls come in precise matched weights.
Condition: Used – OK, some colors are slightly fated / changed
