    Hey. Nice job. I love it. I'm going to build it once I get a couple more pieces. I was just wondering what kind of balls to get and where to get them cause I don't want to get balls that are two heavy that can break it.

    Thanks! I just used the ones from the Big Air Ball Tower set that I had. Here's a link to it: http://www.knex.com/bigbuilds/big_air_ball.php
    I'm sure you can find the same ones on eBay for really cheap.
