Hi there! What Dizz said. Get a stage ball to learn with, and then get an acrylic for showing off.

Use whatever you think works! keep in mind that standard acrylic size is 3", and having a stage ball the same size was beneficial for me. You can get a 4" acrylic, but they're WAY expensive comparatively. it's basically 3 3" acrylics and 1 3" stage ball or a 4" acrylic price ways. but use whatever size you want, and get lots!

I think im going for the 3 inch or maybe 3.5 cuz i think the smaller balls look more sick then the bigger ones. (even though theres not that much difference). And i pretty much have big versions of girl hands.
