I had the same thing.<br /> <br /> I started off with 3in acrylics. I loved to perform with them. From ren faire to ren faire and theatres. But I was never able to get the fluidity that I wanted to achieve until I moved up to 4in spheres. But then there were moves that I could not accomplish with either.<br /> <br /> So I moved to 4 in stage balls and finaly achieved the moves that I want.<br /> <br /> And now everything is meshing together, I learned the moves with one sphere and used that experience to move into another sphere that I want to work with.<br /> <br /> I have jumped between spheres constantly to assist myself. example, I use to 4in stage ball to learn the move, and the 3 in acrylic to master it (because body rolls with a 3 in are much harder than a 4 in) But I will perform it with the 4 in acrylic for fluidity and visualization.<br /> <br /> It took me 3 years. But I am finaly getting to where I want to be. I should probably practice for more than 1 hour a month though I supose. lol.<br /> <br /> Saulie http://www.contactjuggling.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=44325#44325 Saulie Wed Nov 07, 2007 5:04 pm http://www.contactjuggling.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=44325#44325 Re: OMG I DID IT!!! http://www.contactjuggling.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=44322#44322 <br /> Author: <a href='http://www.contactjuggling.org/phpBB2/profile.php?mode=viewprofile&u=2026'>Twisthem488</a><br /><br /> Posted: Wed Nov 07, 2007 4:53 pm<br /><br /> <br /><br /> I have found something similar with almost every prop I use. I was put off cj the first time I tried it because I was using a 1.5" bao ding ball. A year or so later when I got an acyrlic suddenly everything seemed easier. I started diabolo with a cheap "beginner" diabolo that was to light and wobbled. I was only able to learn a handful of moves before I got frustrated with it. The same goes for pen spinning and clubs and balls, and even flower sticks. Again in contact juggling, when I got my 4" acyrlic it seemed like a whole nother range of possiblities because of what the change it prop allowed me to do. Isolations and body rolls became so smooth <img src="images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif" alt="Very Happy" border="0" /> http://www.contactjuggling.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=44322#44322 Twisthem488 Wed Nov 07, 2007 4:53 pm http://www.contactjuggling.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=44322#44322 Re: OMG I DID IT!!! http://www.contactjuggling.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=44321#44321 <br /> Author: <a href='http://www.contactjuggling.org/phpBB2/profile.php?mode=viewprofile&u=8701'>xdavidx</a><br /><br /> Posted: Wed Nov 07, 2007 4:34 pm<br /><br /> <br /><br /> [quote="Saulie"]After several years of practice (not as often as I would like thats for sure)<br /> <br /> I have finaly conqured the behind the neck roll!!! <br /> <br /> And I have made great progress on the behind the neck pirouette into chest roll as an infinate combo.<br /> <br /> I have been able to chest roll both ways with confidence for some time.
