Hurl Snowballs 150 Feet This Winter With These Jai Alai Scoops

I can understand not wanting to be the guy who brings a jai alai xistera to a snowball fight, sure, but if you want to start tagging up your enemies (neighborhood nine-year-olds) at distances of up to 150 feet, well...


...this is the way to do it. The 150 Foot Slinging Snowball Xistera, an important product from Hammacher Schlemmer, is modeled on the scoopy baskets used in jai alai, an intense sport you may know from that one Mad Men subplot or that one Jackass skit.

The Snowball Xistera's handle has a scoop for packing snowballs, and its curved trough can whip them up to 150 feet. That's just about the distance where I start feeling comfortable hitting complete strangers with snowballs, so, you know, this thing is pretty much perfect.

$25 buys you two, but be careful using both of them at once—you'll probably end up looking pretty silly trying to hurl a snowball the distance of half a football field with a plastic jai alai scoop if you're doing it with your left hand. [HS via Oh Gizmo via Wired]
