So is that like a spring-cosh's retarded cousin :haha:
Seriously, depending on the weight of the ball, it could pack a pretty good punch. however, with any flexible weapon you have the issue of rebounding (where it bounces off some part of their anatomy and hits some part of yours...:biggrin2: ). Besides, it looks kind of cheap/flimsy. (and it looks like a few other things I'm not going to mention in polite company:wink: )
Rob, that is the funniest thing I have heard all day.
Seriously, it looks like one of those mystery items you occasionally glance on one of the undesirable tables in the back of Spencers’ at the mall. Either that or a doggy chew toy.
Disko, considering your country’s laws, it might be a viable option. I would however suggest, you try to get it in some other color than pink.
Seems if that's the direction you chose to go, a well tied lanyard with a steel ball bearing would be more effective, cheaper and less "cheesey." I'm thinking of a pattern called the "monkey's fist," hopefully our resident lanyard junkies can elaborate - I've seen them but never tied one myself. There are also several hits using Yahoo's engine, to avoid any copyright violations I won't post the links.
that looks like an over priced version of a mooring toss. for anyone who doesn't know what that is, it's basically a lead ball wrapped in heavy cord, with up to 12" of cord to wrap on your hand. they're used on boats to throw ropes over masts, and other things nautical. they might go by a different name, depending where you live.
