are they worth the price?
i want to get on but the £55 kind of intimidates me
i have a small show coming up at the end of this month and i think it would look great but how long does it take to get used to the weight?
ive already tried one out but not for more than a few seconds and it didnt actually seem as heavy as people made it out to be

I've got a great idea, why not buy a spare 100mm off me for £20?

It's got two small dings that are not too obvious, and once I've cleaned out the *ahem* glitter that has got stuck in the scratches it'll look fantastic..

I'm in London on Monday in the Waterloo/ London Bridge area around 8-30am until 2pm ish.

Try before you buy, obviously..

The ball is in your court!

*edit* It doesn't feel very heavy to me, now that I'm using a larger ball

I'm in Glasgow the following weekend, meeting goldstarbriney while I'm there, I could pop over to Hull on my way back.. I feel a road trip coming on.

Where's my Volvo?

There's an air mattress available here should you want it. And Tea. Lots of Tea.

Always welcome and bring a guitar (that's strung the right way round ) or any other toys you wish to play with.

And I thought I said Skin up?

My 100 seemed heavy at first, but it was a happy kind of heavy. It feels like I'm cheating on several moves like the palm spin because the weight and size help out so much. I'm used to it now and play with it for 9 hours a day on the weekends (at least I did, up until next week. Now that faire is over *tear*) without getting tired. Another thing to point out is that I have tiny little girl hands. I don't remember the size, but I remember according to drews book I should be doing multisphere with 2.75" acyrlics.

As far as performance goes, the large size is a plus. Its more visible and seems to have more "magic". I say go for it I've got 3
