    I'm still undecided with bounce count or time - time is a different category and it's not a speed record it's endurance - but time is different as bounce speed and height would be different for each person attempting. This is what makes URDB unique but it is a pain having to count bounces all the time, but this is where users can moderate, I'm happy to continue counting my own if I'm contributing to the record, but it would speed things up if it were timed... I don't know at this stage :)

    Great job Peter! Did you know this is one of top 10 most challenged records on urdb. I think anything over 10 minutes should be changed to longest time but urdb would put that in a different category I am told

    Hey Brian, good job with just one hand! I've recounted and corrected to 1,157 (you were 20 bounces short). I'm on the fence with using one hand or two. I understand it's "unfair" but this is where it becomes a technique and skill if you are ambidextrous then go for it - the record is simply bouncing the ball on the mallet, not bouncing the ball on a mallet with one hand... with this in mind, yes you could get 1,000 with one hand and 1,000 with the other (with a bit of practice) then when the second hand tires the first would have recovered enough to switch back again so the record continues indefinitely... we've reached a sort of upper limit of the record moving from just 100 bounces to 1,000... for now I'll keep it to one hand so we do have a more defined limit, I'm happy either way and going by my new alternating sides record with the mallet and baseball the endurance of this record could still be lifted I think to at least 14-1500.

    Did you watch my attempt? I added some under the legs and a juggle start for you, and switched it up a little.

    Thank you Peter for moderating this record. I didn't even realize you re-did this record. We were only 9 bounces apart. You can really feel the burn in your wrist when you get around 400.

    It does add a bit of excitement when you add under the leg, swapping hands - I guess it's still part of the criteria, as long as it continues bouncing is the main thing without touching anything else... although part of the challenge is the arm/wrist tires so if you're swapping hands it almost seems a little unfair if your other hand is strong enough to keep it up... what do you think?

    I was being a bit cheeky and made an attempt while bouncing under my leg for every ten. I got to 100.

    You were close but missed it by 20 bounces. No, I like the "banter" and digs, as long as it's not aggressive which it didn't sound it's all in good fun :) I'm going to have to try again too... you think you have the record then it gets wisped straight back away. I've submitted a whole bunch of other variations which I think are challenging and a bunch of beaten records but seem temporarily on hold or hidden in the system somewhere...

    I'll redo it. How many did I get anyway. I was just kidding about the it's mine. Sometimes you get into the zone & don't really think about what your saying. I guess it was just a really long day.

    Sorry Brian, I counted twice and it didn't beat the current record, although I like your showmanship :)
