Just like with Boading Balls, you want to keep them touching at all times, which means a constant (light) pressure from opposite sides at all times. If, while doing it slowly, the balls separate, stop and correct your hand's position, then continue, and do this until you can do it slowly click-free. It's just a matter of practice.<br /> <br /> The reason I hate clacking... for me, it takes away from the "floating" illusion, it breaks the flow. http://www.contactjuggling.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=47030#47030 Somnilocus Thu Dec 20, 2007 2:03 am http://www.contactjuggling.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=47030#47030 The CJ.org "I just learnt a new move" Thread http://www.contactjuggling.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=46964#46964 <br /> Author: <a href='http://www.contactjuggling.org/phpBB2/profile.php?mode=viewprofile&u=7322'>Jowze</a><br /><br /> Posted: 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 4 ball seperated palm shower http://www.contactjuggling.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=46567#46567 <br /> Author: <a href='http://www.contactjuggling.org/phpBB2/profile.php?mode=viewprofile&u=19'>Cameron</a><br /><br /> Posted: Sun Dec 09, 2007 2:47 am<br /><br /> <br /><br /> I'm just excited after years of not working on it and about 5 days of spending a bit of time on it I can do it now... not as well as id like but still it looks nice =) http://www.contactjuggling.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=46567#46567 Cameron Sun Dec 09, 2007 2:47 am http://www.contactjuggling.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=46567#46567 Over The Head Roll : Tips ? http://www.contactjuggling.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=46308#46308 <br /> Author: <a href='http://www.contactjuggling.org/phpBB2/profile.php?mode=viewprofile&u=33'>Colin</a><br /><br /> Posted: Mon Dec 03, 2007 8:49 pm<br /><br /> <br /><br /> never had a problem with my neck for head rolls and juggling.

Grab yourself a soccerball, an acrylic, and another ball halfway in between the two sizes.
