Geez, I had a big ball just that size that I carried around with me everywhere I went for such a long time but I had to have it removed ... damn, that would'uve made your act interesting. I guess I could start freemounting the six footer again ... could you wait another six months or so?

Only one I've seen was a bit larger, around the same of a basket ball. That was at:

Skate City,14 crown alley, temple bar, dublin 2, Dublin.
ph#679-9900(you can look up the country code etc..)

This may be far too late, since this post's been running for ages, but Sports shops (InterSport etc) in England have tennis balls the size of Coconuts- i bought three the other day to use in a street act, and they sure bounce...

Six months later, and I haven't forgotten. I'm still looking, when lo and behold, I just spotted an entire rack of basketball sized tennis balls at Wall-Mart for $5 each. The white rubber banding on them was not to scale, it appeared to be the same width as a normal tennis ball, but otherwise they looked, and acted like big tennis balls. They also had some at Pet Smart that were a little bit bigger than an American Softball.

Hope that helps. If you don't need them any more, let me know and I will stop keeping an eye out for them!

Wall Mart also had some unusual volleyballs that were decorated like smiley faces [img]smile.gif[/img] ! I don't use volleyballs, but I thought that they were eye catching anyway, and would make an interesting prop for the right person.
