firetoys.com is my fave.

I've used butterfingers and beard a lot before, but the friendliness and unbelievable delivery speed of firetoys makes it my favourite now.

I seem to buy all my things at conventions now but when I do buy on-line firetoys.com is my weapon of money spending choice.

It would be extremely helpful if you specified which country you lived in.

Firetoys is undoubtedly a great store; they have a good selection, good prices, hell, they even called me all the way from England to the US to confirm an order. The problem is though, shipping kills me, because it has to go from the UK to the US. Not good.

You want to always order domestic unless you really really can't avoid it.

All three are good, butterfingers actually supply firetoys with most of their juggling stuff. I tend to go for butterfingers nowadays, if you phone them they usually ship the same day and if the postman does his job you can get stuff the next day!

I think the Oddballs site doesn't do it justice. I work near the Camden shop and they sell loads of stuff that doesn't seem to appear on the website. Because I yo yo as well, I've used a site that used to be on Ebay called letshavefun. It's run by a guy called Pete and he is very good at the customer service side of things and has very reasonable prices. He's gone out of his way on a number of occasions. If he hasn't got what you want, suggest it and he'll try to stock it.

I really recommend having a look.

i find higgens brothers a good retailer for juggling supplies in general in the u.s., but they dont have a good selection of diabolo handstix, as they dont sell carbon/aluminum stix, although they have an amazing selection of diabolo's (they sell henry's circus's, mb finnesses and harliquins to name a few).

higgins brothers stock G1 (or are they G2s?) xtremes, which are aluminum sticks.

I´d say Naranja. Nice people, good service, good packaging, no hassle. Only downside is they´re so far away.
