If you had a normal frisbee, you probably looked at those with an Aerobie Pro with envy! Those who owned it as a child would brag about how far it could go and how fast it was compared to your cheap and boring ‘normal’ frisbee, and to be fair, they did have a point…
The Aerobie Pro was used to set the Guinness World Record for longest throw on two separate occasions, so while you may have thought your friends with an Aerobie Pro were just being idiots, they did have a valid point when they were letting you know how bad your frisbee was compared to theirs.
Designed in 1984 by Stanford engineer Adam Adler, the Aerobie had a polycarbonate core with soft rubber bumpers molded to the inner and outer rims. People will remember it for being so much better than your normal frisbee, it flew for what seemed like miles and was far quicker as well, the only downside being that it sank in water.
The good news is the Aerobie Pro is still very much available to buy today, so you won’t have to go hunting for a pre-owned one or pay an extortionate price for some good old nostalgia.
