Djubi

Slingshot Catch Game

Catch 2.0

This slingshot toss game was inspired by a kind of flying squirrel that glides across the sky and then lands in its mother’s pouch. It was named after an Aboriginal word for those creatures, too.

Each Djubi racket has a soft mesh net for catching the foam balls and a hook on top to launch them. Slip the ball’s latex loop over
the hook then pull, point, and watch it fly as far as 100 feet.

Djubi (which has a silent “d”) feels both fresh and familiar. Take turns slinging or change it up and invent your own rules. When we tested it here we came up with a version called “Freeze Djubi” where you have to stay in the same place to catch and launch.

It’s like your classic game of catch, but 2.0.

    Hello Grommet fans. I’m Dave Yearick the inventor of Djubi. In setting out with the idea of concocting a new exciting way to play catch, I created Djubi. I believe soon that Djubi will be a mainstay in backyards, college quads and on beaches around the world; and this opportunity to be today's Grommet will no doubt be a big part of helping it become all that it will be for years to come! I look forward to answering any questions you may have today.

    How sturdy is the band? How many "shots" can be expected from a single ball before it wears out? Cool idea and fun-looking product.

    @Barry Hi Barry, over time the latex bands will break down and wear out, however they should last long enough to loose them before they go bad :)

    I don't see a handle on the Junior set. How do the kids hold it?

    @Kay Hi Kay yep there is a handle on the Jr. version. It is designed to be easier to hold by little, less strong hands and wrists

    You need to develop and sell a Djubi foldable target of some sort so the game can be more competitive and allow kids / adults to compete with the game aspect of this cool item. Probably something similar to a bean bag board or maybe some type of hanging target.

    @Jason Hi Jason, we do indeed have this item you speak of ... It is called Djubi DartBall, I would recommend you request The Grommet to carry it as well :)
