Fixing a flat Swiss Ball

I have a stability/yoga/pilaties/swiss/balance/big ass (that should cover the aliases) with a tiny hole in it (pin size). Anyone ever used “fix a flat” to repair it?

I would just by a new swiss ball they are cheap anyways.

If it were me, I would try to melt the plastic around the hole just enough the it seeled off.

But I like melting stuff!

/hand Jeff some toy plastic soldiers.

Jeff’s idea sounds good to me.

I’ve walked a mile in your shoes…did you get your Swiss ball at some “low-core” gym or fitness store?

Long-term solution: get a better ball! The best I’ve seen and used to date is available from Westside Barbell (www.westside-barbell.com). It doesn’t cost that much more than mainstream swiss balls (I think it’s $35)…plus you’ll save money in the long term 'cause it will last 10 years.
