I've put in for an order of two uv balls from Neon Husky, and tacked on another Mystery Box. I wonder what I'll get this time.

The balls arrived today from Neon Husky.

The two UV balls are beautiful, even though they are discounted. They are a couple *minor* artifacts, but no one will ever notice unless they hold the balls right up to their noses and look for them.

The $5 mystery box contained another Ball! And boy is it interesting. The ball is almost opaque white...but...how to explain it...in regular light it looks like someone trapped white smoke, or fog, in the ball, but it's uniform, no swirls.

It looks amazing with my ruby red balls.

The kicker is, this is a glow ball, but it only charges under ultraviolet light. So this means it'll charge from black light and/or sunlight, but not light bulbs. I tried it out and it turns the most wonderful shade of blue.

Two concerns for this ball are:

1) Jim doesn't have any more, however he can get more if people ask for them.

2) like other chargeable glow balls, this doesn't charge super evenly, so it isn't a good ball for isolations in the dark. However, in regular light it would work just fine. Also, in the dark glowing, it still looks really cool in regular one ball routine moves or with several other balls when perfect uniformity isn't noticeable.

The upshot: I'm happy with the UV's and I'm charmed by the mystery Fog/UV ball. And, of course, customer service is wonderful.

use a flashgun with a foil lined box to get an even charge.
i've heard it works rather well.

What is a flashgun?

And another thing I have noticed about my Portland Fog ball is that it doesn't glow anywhere NEAR as bright as a regular UV ball. The effect is subtle and I still quite like it.

You have a glow in the dark ball I have eight of them, they're nice.

I charge mine by using them under black light. After a while, you've turned the ball all sorts of ways and it's all charged.
