The original Aerobie flying ring, the Pro ring, holds a Guinness World
Record for the farthest throw, an incredible 1,257 feet.
For truly exhilarating games of catch, the Pro ring has no equals. You can actually
play catch with a friend more than 100 yards away. Even today, 17 years after
it was first introduced, onlookers continue to be amazed at this incredible
flying ring. The soft rubber edge makes catching soft and easy. The Pro ring
is made in an assortment of colors (orange, magenta, and yellow). Recommended
for kids 12 years old and up. It is quality made in the U.S.A. Size: 13 inch
THE RINGS - Aerobie rings should be thrown with the printed side up.
If you want an Aerobie ring to fly straight, release it level. People who throw
discs tend to release them sloping downward to compensate for the disc's
tendancy to roll. With Aerobie rings (and discs), this compensation is not needed
so throw them level if you want them to fly straight. You can throw an Aerobie
ring sloping to the left if you want it to curve left and sloping to the right
if you want it to curve right. You can throw an Aerobie ring with either a backhand
or a forehand throw. The backhand throw is more popular because it is easier
to throw accurately. Grip the ring with several fingers inside for easy control.
PLAY - As is the case with any thrown object, throw an Aerobie ring
only to an alert catcher. Play in a clear space so participants will not accidentally
trip over or crash into trees, cars, people, and other hazards. It should be
noted that rings are more prone than discs to getting caught in trees since
a branch can go through the center of a ring, making it difficult to shake the
ring out of the tree. Cease play if there is not sufficient light to clearly
see the ring in flight. Never throw a torn or damaged Aerobie ring.
WON'T FLY STRAIGHT? - Aerobie rings occasionally need to be tuned to
maintain their straight flight. A collision with a solid object can knock a
ring out of tune. If a ring turns left after being thrown level, it needs to
be bent very slightly downward. With the top side of the ring up, hold the ring
at opposing points in your two hands and bend the outer rim of the ring downward
a couple times. Then rotate the ring 90 degress in your hands and repeat the
process. Throw the ring to see if more tuning is needed. If the ring is turning
right, the tuning process is identical with the exception that the outer rim
is bent upward. The instructions for the tuning process are printed on the ring
packages and also on the rings themselves. These instructions are for a right
hander throwing backhand. Reverse the instructions for a throw that spins the
ring in the opposite direction.
