TT1 - Soft shell totally filled with plastic micro spheres
Rewarded by our relentless curiosity to try out new materials and technologies, we have recently succeeded in creating a twin sister of our legendary MMX, but with a special heart featuring formidable characteristics. The brand new TT1s are filled with special micro plastic balls that make these balls unique in terms of pleasantness of touch and durability. It's hard to go back using balls filled with traditional millet seeds after trying the micro spheres.
ADVANTAGES OF PLASTIC MICRO SPHERES FILLING:
Unlike seeds, which crumble over time, reducing their volume and leaving the ball 'emptier', microspheres cannot be broken, maintaining the balls' consistency and softness over time. This also allows the balls to be reused indefinitely instead of being thrown away at the end of their life.
Some people are allergic to millet seeds while the plastic balls are totally hypoallergenic.
- PERFECT SPHERICITY
The micro spheres measure 0.8 mm in diameter and are all identical and perfectly spherical. Thanks to this characteristic the spheres slide beautifully together, accentuating the soft feel of the balls.
The 67 mm MMX filled with millet seeds weighs 135 g, the 67 mm TT1 weighs 130 g, making it 5% lighter.
Our shells are made of 100% Phthalates-free soft PVC. They are available in 5 sizes and 2 different thicknesses for a total of 8 options. Extremely elastic, durable and easy to wash with any type of detergent. When you don't juggle them, we recommend to keep your balls stored in a separate bag since PVC can easily get permanently stained getting in contact with inks as from the pages of a review or pens and markers. SOFT shells are approx. 2 mm thick. As soft as beanbags, they are more forgiving on collisions and tempt to roll much less on the floor. These are the shells used for MMX, SRX, TTS, TT1 and SIL-X Light balls. ELASTIC shells are approx. 4 mm thick. They feel solid, precise and allow to work easier on head and body rolls. These are the shells used for SIL-X and HYBRID balls. SURFACE FINISH 62-67-70-75 mm MATTE (soft touch) 78 mm GLOSSY (ultra grip)
The value 1/2 it's just indicative for under-filled balls. The actual amount of filling you will receive it is what we recommend and use in the manufacturing of our most popular juggling balls. It can vary from a minimum of 1/3 to a maximum of 1/2 of the internal shell volume depending on the shell's diameter and thickness. It is digitally weighted with high precision devices for every single ball.
The plugs can be removed allowing to adjust the weight of the balls and to re inflate them in case of need (like after a flight during which the difference in pressure and temperature in the aircraft's hold causes a "deflation" of the ball with consequent dents of the surface).
