The best trip toy I have come across; Astrojax.
    #3405700 - 11/24/04 09:46 PM (12 years, 10 days ago)

It's amazingly simple in design; a ball attached to either end of a string with a third ball thats allowed to slide up and down the string between the balls. It's a skill toy... I picked the toy up and started playing right off the bat, but even after a month I am still learning new things.

The balls can be interchanged, or more balls added on. The balls come in several colors, and different finishes are available. You can get balls with LEDs in them, regular and SUPER BRIGHT! All LEDs can be set on continuous or strobe. You can get string that is blightlight reactive. There is a culture for the people who use this toy over at astrojax.com

The ones with the LEDs are a favorite of mine.

Yeah, I made a post about them a while ago, they are badass, and now they have ones with high intensity blue LEDs instead of the red, green and yellow. You can pick these things up at target for $8, you have to buy the blue ones online, make sure you get the Astrojax SATURN (there are ones without lights)

Was it hard to do the first night you tried it? Easy to learn from there?

make sure you buy the LED ones the non-light ones suck.
they are really easy to make look cool just flail your arms around like a mad man and they go nuts. it can be hard to actually do real tricks.

>Was it hard to do the first night you tried it? Easy to learn from there?
-There was nothing hard about it the first time I picked it up. You just rythmically move the hand you are holding the 1st ball in. If you pull up and down, the bottom ball will orbit the middle one. It you move only slightly from left to right, the balls will orbit each other. If you pull left and right it will do something called a butterfly, which was the "trick" I was doing about 5 minutes into it. Keep in mind these tricks all just "happened" and it wasn't untill some time after that I discovered these tricks all had names.

This thing is so easy to get started on, and the more you play (even casually) the better you will get.

>the website is a lil' childish
-Thats only the demographic they are after. But if you look closely at the "top 100" player's list, you'll see quite a few people in there 20s and 30s.

>seems like it takes quite a bit of skill,that not being easy obtained wi\hile in the midst of a trip
-It takes very little skill to get the balls moving. It takes alot of _control_ to do the tricks of the month. Then again, those tricks were submitted by people that go to competitions in different countys. This is something you can do tripping, but you would be better off learning the basics sober so you can get creative on the trip... rather than learning the basics tripping.

Lately, when I get super high I do all sorts of crazy things with this toy. I use fingers to get in the way of the string so as to change the orbit. You're hands are great for manipulation.

>it can be hard to actually do real tricks.
-I wouldn't be concerned with doing tricks other people have come up with. It's easy to come up with a style, and my advice is to keep at it. The things that come naturally to you should be what you explore first.

I was gonna buy a set of these (the bright blue LED ones) but I'd forgotten to change my credit card address to the new apt... so I went to change it online, and it said it won't be changed for 2-3 days. :\ I will have them soon, however! I am looking forward to playing with these...

>Anyone know a site I can buy LED balls ect?
-http://usastrojax.com/

They have a set of the super bright LEDs in all blue, and all white.

"Special Edition Blue LED Saturn" is 12.95
http://shopnow.secureonlinecart.com/stor...&affiliate=

"Astrojax Blue Diamond" is 14.95
http://shopnow.secureonlinecart.com/stor...&affiliate=

The Blue Diamond and the SE Blue LED Saturn are almost identical. Both sport the super bright blue LEDs, and aside from different lettering the only difference is Blue Diamond comes with a black light reactive orange string.



"Special Edition White LED Saturn" is 14.95
http://shopnow.secureonlinecart.com/stor...&affiliate=

Additionally, you can get a tuning kit with one white ball and one blue ball (all superbright) with extra pins, three different strings and a pin popper for 9.95. I'd recomend this if you wanted to get either blue or white SE Saturns, but wanted a UV reactive string and the ability to mix in a different LED ball.

Personally, I'm getting the Blue Diamond and SE white set with the SE tuning kit. I am convinced that, with these toys and enough mdma... I could blow up the world.

Excellent cheers :smile:
Dunno about blowing up the world but I reckon with a couple of ceiling fans, 3 sets of astrojax hanging from each blade of each fan and a seperate motor with an oval shaped holder for the 3rd ball on each and a head full of shrooms I could blow my mind ehhehe
