The Human Slingshot

With the Human Slingshot, you and three friends can fling each other around the inside of a giant stretchable band like a bouncing pinball.

Gameplay is simple, but amazingly fun. In a synchronized pattern, players run toward each other and into the walls of the giant band creating the momentum necessary to catapult the other players across the confines of the slingshot.

The Human Slingshot is made from a proprietary blend of polyester and spandex that is lightweight, durable, comfortable, UV resistant, and provides the perfect amount of elasticity.

Includes a high-quality carrying case.
