Little tip for my fellow newbies. You know that fabulous advice everyone keeps giving us to slow down? Yeah. Well, when you first use an acrylic after you've been using a practice ball, try slowing down to the point that you would if you were learning all your moves from scratch. Know why? Because acrylics are slippery little devils with a life and spirit of their own that want to keep moving and go flying all over the place, and they really hurt when they land on your knees. Oooow.

Alternatively, invest in some body armour.

My first acrylic was actually a silicon ball, far too small really but all I could afford and just wanted a clear ball instead of stage balls, and it was heartbreaking the first time I dropped it and it scratched, but not so worried now.
