TruSleight Manipulation Balls

Postby Ingo » May 7th, 2021, 5:42 am

Hi!

I am interested in the 2" TruSleight Silicone Manipulation Balls and was wondering if anyone here has a set and can tell me how they compare to the Fakini Balls in terms of Grip, Bounce and visibility of the seam?

I am also interested in knowing how the S**ll is compared to the Fakini, i.e. does it lock around the ball (like the Fakini) and does the colour of the S**ll match well with the other balls?

Thanks in advance for any information!

You don't have to use asterisks in this forum. We all know what a shell is, and laymen don't come here! :)

The TruSleight balls have a shell that matches the color of the ball accurately. The bounce is quite good and the grip is excellent.
In the set that I ordered, I found the seam to be a bit more noticeable than a Fakini set, but perhaps it will wear away with use.
The fit of the shell is tight enough that you can toss the ball with shell and it will remain attached. Depending the type of moves you do, this can be either good or bad. Personally, I found it a bit too tight for my routine.

I also ordered a TruSLeight 2" set and found the shell to be thicker (larger) than a Fakini shell of the same size.
