Dube Juggling Equipment

Dube I’m a newbie juggler. Despite the fact that I consider myself a novice, I’ve been juggling off and on for about 5 years. Cliff over at Spiralbound.net was the guy who got me interested in juggling back in my freshman year of college and I got by with some cheap beanbags that I picked up at a bookstore.

It wasn’t until a year later that I bought my first decent Juggling items… Dube was my juggling store of choice. Dube equipment is high quality with a decent amount of customization to allow you to get the look you want. The juggling equipment available at Dube ranges from beanbags to cigar boxes, from bowler hats to unicycles.

The only drawback to Dube is their site as it looks like it was constructed in the 90’s. It could definately use a revamp. But thats beside the point :)

To date I’ve purchased:

  • 3 Silicon Juggling Balls
  • 3 European Clubs
  • 6 Phatboyz Clubs
  • 3 Juggling Knives (w/ cases)
  • 1 Set of Poi

I’m impressed with the quality and longevity of the above listed items. Its only now (after 5 years) that I will need to replace the decoration on my first set of Phatboyz clubs. w00t.

Juggling Knives

I used to juggle all the time. When I was a student at PSU, during the warm months I would hang out by Rounds Hall and juggle on the grass between classes simply as a fun, sometimes frustrating passtime. About a year ago I put my clubs an knives away and hadn’t touched them since. That changed this weekend.

My brother in law came to visit me this Sunday and through some random conversation I learned that he was interested in juggling! He told me that he juggles balls and clubs and has wanted to try knives and torches. Well, thats when I busted out with my juggling knives and clubs and we went to the park to goof around!

Man, I didn’t realize how much I missed juggling and just how fun it was (and tiring)! I’ve juggled off and on for a few years, so I’m not very good by any means…all the more reason for me to start up again.

If you are interested in juggling and you have a good grasp of the concept from juggling balls, then I would suggest trying out clubs. They are frustrating at first but once you get them, it opens a world of opportunity. You’d be able to juggle knives and torches, too! (If you can juggle clubs, knives and torches are just as easy…save for the scare factor)

Here’s what I suggest you get:

Clubs, I use Phatboyz. They are a little fatter than European style and MUCH better than American clubs.
For Torches, go with Dube Customs.
