There are many sizes of juggling balls. The size of the juggling balls and the dimensions of the hands determine the size. Most juggling balls come in metric sizes. This makes it more difficult to make the right decision, as we are more used to measuring in inches than in millimeters.
Jugglers who are starting to work with three to four balls must be able to hold two balls at a time. The third and fourth balls can be held in one hand. You must be able to grip the ball you want to throw with your thumb and two fingers to begin the juggling technique with three balls. These diagrams show the proper sizes according to the dimensions of a hand. As you can see, larger hands can hold a bigger ball.
Intermediate jugglers need to be capable of holding three balls in each hand. Because you can quickly run out of space when holding three balls, size is important. This chart shows how many balls can be held comfortably in one hand. You can control the first throw using your middle and ring fingers when you have three balls in your hand. Your thumb is no longer the only thing you can use to control the first throw, just as it was in a three-ball start.
Advanced jugglers will know the sizes of the balls they prefer for juggling. You can use multiple techniques to start juggling more balls than five. Some jugglers create a pyramid with four balls in each hand. Some jugglers prefer to have all four balls in one hand. You can use a larger-sized ball with the pyramid start than with the flat start. You should pay attention to how your juggler begins his/her juggling routine if you're buying balls for gifts.
You can choose the size of the bean bag ball that is the softest. Bean bag balls that are very soft can be compressed in the palm of your hand. You can hold a larger ball without losing control. You will have better control and grip with softballs.
It is difficult to juggle large balls that are larger than softballs. Throwing the third ball can be difficult if you cannot hold one of the balls in your hands. Jugglers hold the second ball with their forearms, then roll it down to the arm for the third throw. To start, some jugglers place the third ball between their legs. When you want to stop juggling, it is very difficult to catch them all. Two 100mm balls are shown in the photograph. This is the largest size of ball you can hold in one hand.
When you're juggling for an audience, visibility is important. It is easier for them to see larger balls. Because the ball is larger, it will look better. You should use the largest ball you can to perform juggling.
When choosing the right size ball, it is also important to consider the weight of the juggling balls. Juggling balls that are larger in weight weigh more than those with smaller diameters. This can be a big advantage for people with smaller hands or bodies. You should aim for a smaller ball if you are a slow juggler or have poor endurance. It is best to have a ball that weighs less than 125g. A ball weighing more than 150 grams is too heavy. A juggling ball weighing more than 150 grams is too heavy unless you're very tall or over 6 feet tall.
Many avid jugglers have multiple sets of balls that vary in size depending on what they are being used for. To learn new tricks, many jugglers begin with a smaller ball and work their way up. A very small ball is used by jugglers for seven balls. Five balls are medium-sized, five for five and three for three.
