TRUST ME – I’VE SPENT HOURS AND HOURS PLAYING HACKEY SACK
THERE ARE GOOD AND THERE ARE BAD HACKEY SACKS
This is what I look for in a good hackey sack:
1). Filling: I have played with hackey sacks filled with beads, grains, rice, sand and pebbles. For me and my foot, I prefer the sacks filled with beads. I’ve played with the fine sand before and they are not bad, just take a little to get used to. I don’t like a lot of slack in the fabric. Fabric will stretch after time and it is better if you get a hackey sack that is filled to the brim with material.
2). Fabric on the outside. Don’t play with a balloon hackey. I’ll show you some of the fabrics that I’ve liked to play with.
3). Price: I used to pay $5 per sack. You can get them cheaper on Amazon. Here are some that I recommend.
PERUVIAN ARTS PACK OF 6
I grew up playing with these peruvian art hackey sacks. They are cheaper now than when I used to buy them. The quality is fine. The fabric is crochet foot bags and the innards are beads. I think these are fine and for the price they are great.
HACKY SACK JESTER – CORDUROY STYLE
Made of a courduroy cover. I like the look of this sack. It’s one that you can show off with pride. Only issue I have is that it is filled with fine sand, which is great for play, but it tends to LEAK. Ha. Oh well.
Again, a sand filled hackey sack. Maybe I’m out of touch or something. I guess the professionals like sand now. This one is nice, because it looks good feels good and comes with an instructional video.
WORLD FOOTBAG SOCCER HACKY SACK
Good weight, good look. Perfect for juggling. 45 Grams and filled with plastic beads. I give this a solid #2 and on some days a #1.
