I think that the hardest trick must be a lot different from one person
to the next. I can do Mills Mess, but I still struggle with The Shower,
and some other tricks that others would find easier to pick up.

Before you buy.
'The most difficult three ball trick is the one you cannot do'
Maybe you should limit your inquiry to just the most difficult pattern and
leave out the difficult trick part. Whatever difficult 3 ball pattern you
come up with someone can always add another element. For example:
Rubenstien's Revenge while hopping on one foot, chewing gum, reciting
Shakespeare, while riding a crowded subway train that's decelerating......
and on and on.
I second that motion. Continuous behind the back (=back crosses?) is by
far the most difficult pattern with 3 for me (and probably most other
people). I only get 20-30 catches on a good run with this. The control
needed for this is very high and difficult to achieve. I always have to
concentrate to do it whereas the "in front" patterns are easy enough to
relax. I think that RR,MM, and BB aren't even close in difficulty to
continuous behind the back.
Of course you can always pile on more difficult things (eyes closed,
hopping,etc) but I don't think that is what the poster is looking for.
They just wanted a "pure" pattern. If anything behind the back doesn't
qualify as "pure", then I'd nominate RR...
--Woah?! How many is that?
I wish i knew more juggle terminiology . . .
i will now attempt to describe a pattern long hand, and if you would be so
kind as to tell me how a juggler would describe such things i would be
The ball pattern is simple, but the movements make this one of my harder
so the balls are numbered 1,2,3.
the left hand is holding ball 1 and 2
the right is holding 3.
left tosses ball 1 and the right hand circles the ball twice from outside
to inside twice before the ball is caught again by the left hand in cross
arm position, while tossing ball 2. ball two is circled twice with the
right hand from inside to outside, and caught in the right hand as ball
three is tossed. the left hand circles ball 3 from outside to inside
twice before being caught by the right hand, as ball 2 is tossed. the left
circles ball 2 from inside to outside before ball 2 and tossing ball 1
starting the pattern over again.
#outside to inside is clockwise for the left hand, if that helps.

Yeah, exactly, if it was a trick, you could try this. juggle 3
balls in one hand really high and spread out, when your hand
is empty, do a triple pirouette, then catch and throw another
ball. then do another triple pirouette... etc, with your eyes
