Product Catalog > Retail Catalog > Kick > Sand Filled Footbag Line-Up For those of us that are "old school," a sand filled footbag is like having "training wheels." (Footbags are also sometimes called hacky sacks, and they are the same thing, although Hacky Sack is a trademarked name. A sand-filled footbag is heavier and much softer than its predecessor, a plastic pellet-filled footbag. The added softness and weight of sand allows beginners to stall the footbag like the "pros," but the footbag becomes less "kickable" because the sand absorbs the energy of a kick. Plastic pellets and steel ball bearings used as footbag filler reflect the energy of a kick, so are much easier to kick when doing spins and "flyer moves" where the hacky sack is kicked high into the air. In 1995 Flying Clipper introduced its first sand filled footbag, the DirtbagŪ. Today sand filled footbags dominate the market place, while pellet-filled footbags are still the standard for footbag net and footbag golf.
DIRTBAG IS A REGISTERED TRADEMARK OF FLYING CLIPPER.
