- It's a fun new recreational activity that combines an amped up game of ring toss with the swashbuckling of a sword fight. Well, sort of. RingStix is an easy-to-learn game that can be played casually or competitively anywhere, by anyone, from kids to senior citizens.
How Do RingStix Work?
RingStix is played with slightly curved 25 inch sword-like sticks and a five inch ring. With a stick in each hand crossed, and the ring over both sticks, players simply flare out their arms to propel the ring spinning forward toward the other player. That player then uses the point of one or both of the sticks to catch the flying ring and sends it back again in the same manner. The faster and harder a player flares the sticks the farther the ring will fly, sometimes up to 50 yards, even in strong winds.
This unique sport offers an entertaining new form of exercise, improves agility and hand-eye coordination, and gets kids and adults off the couch and away from sedentary technologies like computers, TV and video games. RingStix can be used in yards, parks, at the beach and more. The patent-pending RingStix product line is made of very durable material that meets all U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission standards. Both the stix and the rings float and one ring even glows in the dark adding a fun twist for night time play.
RingStix Standard sells for $19.99 RingStix Pro sells for $29.99 and are available online.
