Hey you guys with big hands and big multiball control...

I had a dream last night that I was palm spinning three balls in a straight line on each palm. Put together they made a lovely long snake. When I woke up of course I rushed to my balls and tried it. Sure I can hold a straight-line three in one hand stationery (just) but is it possible to spin them?

Don't think so, at least not with 75mm or bigger. Yes, I've seen rotations of a 3ball line with smaller balls, but it doesn't really count, does it?

Yeah, a full 3B rotation in one hand takes smaller balls for sure. One can do a live snake with 6 but it's harrrrrrrrd.

Yah, I thought as much. Boo for limitations. I'm kinda interested to hear Drew's take too... he likes pushing the numbers, right?

Oh, and what say you, Moon? I've seen you palmspinning three 90mm, right? Ever tried straight-line spinning three 76mm?

I am not yet able to do it with 76mm, truthfully I think my hands are just barely too small. 65mm or even 70mm would be a possibility. Too bad I dont have small balls.

Nice Richard! I totally thought I remembered seeing someone spin three. Thanks for putting this in here.

Definitely possibly with smaller balls.
