kverens: This is an effect I came across while playing around with some CJ. Basically, all it is is a one-ball palm-spin with another ball gripped by the other hand, moving in the same motions as the palm-spin one. Simple trick, but it gets a nice reaction. As long as you keep the distance between the balls the same length, the look is magical, although another interesting effect can be achieved by slightly "elasticating" the line between them, so the ball reacts a moment after the "command" is given.

Same principle as the Yo-Yo and Oy-Oy in Toss juggling, right?

exactly. it's an effect which is damned simple once you learn it, but has an illusionary quality to it.

funily enough, I can't do it smoothly with the hands swapped...

I've been trying to think of a good three-ball variant, but so far haven't come up with anything convincing
