If it's a bit quiet today that may be because everyone is at BBU 2013, Me Río del Valle or London Hoop Fest.

I ended up playing with 3 small traffic cones last night at #hastings. They were made of one piece of plastic, about 20cm tall & had a square base. I tried the obvious shaker cup moves (without having to use ear protection which was a bonus) which were possible but difficult due to various air pressure effects, this could be improved by drilling holes in the top to improve air flow as seen in speed stacking cups. Throwing them like a spinning top produced a nice helicopter effect. I also experimented with various combinations of throwing & catching the cones by inserting a hand inside then catching other cones on top. It was a fun session with a versatile little prop.
Here's a tiny bit of me using similar cones.
I bought some of those a few weeks ago. But for marking out my workshop area, not for juggling. Bit light.
Plus, it ain't no thang without the clang! :-D
