Information learned while performing an easier version of a task will still apply to harder versions. If something is difficult, often learning can be sped up by making it easier, or giving yourself a "crutch." Once you're comfortable performing the task with the crutch, take the crutch away. Often you'll find you're miles closer to learning the task than you were before you let yourself hobble along on that crutch for a while.[/quote]<br /> <br /> I see where you're coming from, but it's not always true. Look at the 1b palm spin iso. It's easiest with a 4" acrylic and you can learn it with a 4" acrylic, but when you go to do it with a smaller and lighter ball it's not going to be so easy. The 4" acrylic has different properties than a small and/or lighter ball and you'll basicly have to relearn how the smaller/lighter ball spins before you can get the iso. The same's true for this. Using a bandana or not is the same basic idea, but using a bandana has a different property than not. If you've learned with the bandana then you try with out it you're basicly going to have to relearn the stall all over again because you're going to have to learn the properties of your hair (or if you're bald, you head). http://www.contactjuggling.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=46965#46965 xdavidx Tue Dec 18, 2007 2:37 pm http://www.contactjuggling.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=46965#46965 The CJ.org "I just learnt a new move" Thread http://www.contactjuggling.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=46964#46964 <br /> <b>Author:</b> <a href='http://www.contactjuggling.org/phpBB2/profile.php?mode=viewprofile&u=7322'>Jowze</a><br /><br /> <b>Posted:</b> Tue Dec 18, 2007 1:48 pm<br /><br /> <br /><br /> Cheers Lawrens <img src="images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif" alt="Very Happy" border="0" /> I'm on the other way on three balls and it feels nearly natural, 4 balls will wait for now, counter clock wise with 4 gets my fingers all crazy ... http://www.contactjuggling.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=46964#46964 Jowze Tue Dec 18, 2007 1:48 pm http://www.contactjuggling.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=46964#46964 Legalities http://www.contactjuggling.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=46963#46963 <br /> <b>Author:</b> <a href='http://www.contactjuggling.org/phpBB2/profile.php?mode=viewprofile&u=8320'>cant_think_of_a_name</a><br /><br /> <b>Posted:</b> Tue Dec 18, 2007 1:31 pm<br /><br /> <br /><br /> Oh it'll be in cumbria when I'm home for Xmas so I won't be on silvers patch!<br /> <br /> Do I stop for a community officer?

I picked out a purple UV, heavy dye, but it was in perfect shape. The UV was splotchy so I returned it. They were very nice and I looked at their other 3" balls. They looked like they were used as displays or something from a few scratches on it. I picked out a red ball for $39.99 with no marks, bubbles or imperfections on it. <img src="images/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" border="0" /> <img src="images/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" border="0" /> <img src="images/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" border="0" /> It was expensive, but evens out considering I didn't pay shipping. I love it. I recommend this store only if you can go in person, they don't always have the balls in stock that are listed online. If you do go, they give you a flaming business card, but they put it out before they will hand it to you.<br /> <br /> Quality 3/10 - Some scratches on a few and UV was uneven, but they carry great stage balls!<br /> Service 10/10 - Didn't ask for a receipt and paid me the difference in price in cash. http://www.contactjuggling.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=46938#46938 Dizz Tue Dec 18, 2007 12:08 am http://www.contactjuggling.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=46938#46938 Nika on Buzzcocks Everyone! http://www.contactjuggling.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=46936#46936 <br /> <b>Author:</b> <a href='http://www.contactjuggling.org/phpBB2/profile.php?mode=viewprofile&u=18'>FireMage</a><br /><br /> <b>Posted:</b> Mon Dec 17, 2007 11:43 pm<br /><br /> <br /><br /> lol,"shut up! youve got it already." i have to remember to use that frequently. http://www.contactjuggling.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=46936#46936 FireMage Mon Dec 17, 2007 11:43 pm http://www.contactjuggling.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=46936#46936 Bday! http://www.contactjuggling.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=46929#46929 <br /> <b>Author:</b> <a href='http://www.contactjuggling.org/phpBB2/profile.php?mode=viewprofile&u=8423'>sylver_cat</a><br /><br /> <b>Posted:</b> Mon Dec 17, 2007 9:01 pm<br /><br /> <br /><br /> Wow!<br /> <br /> Happy Birthday Cameron!

Though yeah, an acrylic living on top of it wouldn't do its spherical integrity any good. <img src="images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif" alt="Very Happy" border="0" /> As it is, my practice ball and stage balls sit on top of the acrylics (which are in bags), so they've not got pressure bearing down on them for above. Though I guess gravity could have an effect, though not sure how much of an effect in this instance.
