I was looking to replace the trackball on the Crystal Castles I just picked up. Read that some have used acrylic juggling balls as replacements - anyone on here heard this or tried this? I'm going just a *tad* custom on this "project" and need a color that isn't offered.

Thanks!

Just in case anyone ever wants to try this it does work. I ordered a 3" acrylic contact juggling ball and it was a perfect replacement for my Crystal Castles track ball. Just waiting for some t-molding and I will post pics of the finished game if anyone is interested.

I discovered recently that a 2.25" billards cue ball fits perfectly in a Centipede trackball assembly... And only costs $5 shipped. ;)
