    Someone gave me this interesting gift the other day. it is 3 balls, each slightly smaller than a table tennis ball. two of them are attached by a piece of string just over a metre long and the third slides up and down said string. if you tug one of the end balls with the others hanging they start to orbit aroung each other and can pull some funky little tricks. :P

    ANYWAY does anyone know the name for these things (i'll try and get hold of a Photo to post up) Another friend of mine has seen some plastic high tech ones in a toyshop with the name 'Aerojax' this is just a brandname though and I wondered if anybody is familiar with what i'm yakking about. :Wink3:

    AHH! :Grin: Good to see people know what i'm jabbering about. After a few days I've become much addicted to pinging 'em about. The Astro-jax seem to be quite official being made of plastic and being quite ugly, they also are very painful if you krak yourself in the jaw with one.
    :!: BUT go to your local 1£ store and you might find some funky soft Rainbowish coloured ones that have a lovely squidgy feel and cost......yup....1£.....

    I know what all my freinds are getting for this christmas :jump:

    Aye, Astrojax. If you like 'em then go with it :Smile3: Meself, I've never quite clicked with 'jax but I appreciate watching them done well (like anything else). I never felt that the time required to master them would justify the reward of success. I mean, you can't set fire to them! :Grin:

    :lol: Well.....a few years isolation on a mountaintop and anything is possible!!!!!!! :Wink3:

    Flaming Astro's would be something to train for... but I'll probably stick to painting them Day-Glo :Smile3:

    Haha astrojax :Smile3:

    I shall never forget the time my wife, my friend and I got a bit :blink: :trippn: :dancey:
    In my (rather small) living room. We then decided to simultaneously bust out the l.e.d 'jax. We had them in strobe mode so they left stuttering trails in the air. It was Awesome it just looked beautiful. This effect was further enhanced by my friend being 6'7" and whirling them around his head. I wish I had video of it.

    :jump:
