STAFF REVIEW

It's a footbag, not a hack...

Date:August 29, 2013
This is designed to stall, not grind on pavement or even grass. If there's someone that grinds it in your circle, do your best to avoid that person until they understand. Bend over and pick this up with your hands or use a foot method that doesn't grind.
These's are normally more than MEC charges, so it's worth it.. makes a great gift and helps increase skills.
The best part is the sand will eventually leak out, making it perfect to stall.. buy 2, use one until it's perfect and then start using the other.
With proper use it'll last years.
Pros: Simple, Good Value, soft stall

Solid Hacky. I've got two, but neither one has held up very long. they both look like Frankenstein because of all the repairs I have done to try to stop the sand from leaking out, but they still leak. I've had to refill them both as well. For the price, I would expect longer usage from them. Drawbacks aside, It plays pretty well, which is why I've bothered repairing them; I won't be buying another one though.
Pros: Simple
Cons: Expensive, Unreliable

awsome hack

Date:April 24, 2009
i have been hacking since i was 13 years old, this is a good hack! you cant complain about breaking easily, its a sand hack and has a very thin skin for better feel and stalling. that being said you scuff it and you break it. i have never wrecked one yet, one is 2 years for sure and has been to honduras mexico and belize and its still kickin just dont grind it!
Pros: Great freestyle hack

Best Footbag I've ever seen!

Date:June 21, 2008
Footbags are great for killing time at the bus stop, or anywhere for that matter. This footbag doesn't leak its contents, and it has sand instead of those pesky plastic pellets as a filler. This is an amazing product!
Pros: High Quality

the best footbag

Date:March 31, 2008
easy to stall, heavy enough to pack a punch... good for passing as well as playing solo. price tag is a bit higher than usual hacks, but the quality level is def. amongst the best i've tried.
Pros: High Quality

Great Hacky Sack.

Date:February 3, 2008
Great Hacky Sack. Lots of my friends say that [$] is a lot for a hacky sack, but they're wrong. A hacky sack from the dollar store will break on you so fast and the have horrible feel.
Pros: Great Value
Cons: Weak Seams

Nice hack, great value

Date:October 10, 2007
Great sand hack, nice feel, plays well, Good price. Sometimes wobbles in the air if it is rotating. The seam tore too soon. Its a great hacky sack if you don't abuse it.
Cons: Weak Seams
