Raptor football weds a football to a glider for prolonged passes

Memories of those football hero days can be relived with this product. Raptor football may not look like the football used in high school, but it will allow the user to throw like they are in high school again. The aerodynamic design of this football will allow it to glide over 100 yards, and its aerospace-grade aluminum alloy frame means it is crash resistant for those times when the other guy fumbles – or just flat out misses. Polymer wings add to the gliding fun, and the foam body means nobody gets hurt – unless somebody tries to relive those old tackling memories. Now if they could just come up with a cheerleading uniform that would make a middle-aged woman look good to complete this fantasy. Right ladies?

Closely resembling a NURF ball, it’s unclear if Raptor really brings anything new to the table. Still, if it can really be thrown as far as its creators say, it’ll be great fun for those who have big fields to play in. This campaign seeks to raise a whopping $193,000 by December 30, 2014. For $29, backers get one product with an expected delivery of March 2015.
