Anyone try Running Eggs or Jolly Eggs?

I came across this on the online pet shop supply I get stuff from, and wondered if it was any good. I was weighing up whether to get a treat ball or this, but since Juno is REALLY into chasing stuff, fetch, etc, I thought maybe this might be the way to go. Has anyone tried it with their dogs before?

Here's a video I found of someones dog on youtube using one:

Karlo is crazy for the eggeball. He chewed the end off and carries it/throws it gets his face all messed up. I only give it to him in small doses.

Here he is with the bestball:
I found the cheapest pricing for both here:
Reward Toys: Police K9, Military K9 and Schutzhund Working Dog Equipment
This is his favorite, but tears up his teeth and muzzle, so he seldom gets to play with it:

Kopper has an eggeball and *loves* it. We have an acre and he runs all around the yard with it. It's a nice alternative to fetch sometimes, but he can get fixated on it so I have to take it away at times. I try not to use it too much since he becomes obsessive.

I love watching dogs go psycho with toys. They look so happy.

I have both the Jolly Egg and the Largest Jolly push ball that is made of the same thing as the Egg. They are well worth the money I think I searched all over the web and the cheapest was from a place called King Wholesale or something like that. I wish I had gotten a little smaller size on the push ball because it is very big around.

if you have an equine co-op nearby you can buy 10 Inch Little Giant Horseplay Balls . Mine is green and green apple scented . One day the dog popped in to the paddock and took the horses ball.
Since they can pick it up and carry it , you get great development of front end strength. When I have two of my "ddr" heavy young dogs out they play differently with it . First is the game of possession. Then the one who has it uses it as a battering ram chasing the one who does not have it . The game is understood , co-operative , like a game of tag ?? go figure . Silly dogs.
Here is what my horses do , by themselves , I'm not in the paddock when they play
had to share this , the relation with man and horse , out of this world, the horse a most stunningly beautiful beast .

We have one of those as well. Kopper prefers the Egge and Rocky loves the 10 inch ball with the handle. They do like to play together with the big jolly ball though.

My boy has the Egge & loves it. It's so funny to watch him play with it, he pushes that thing all over the yard & growls, barks and has a good time.

I actually sent one to our breeder as a gift for future litters
