TOKAY Ultimate boots have begun to become more and more widespread on fields across the world – it hasn’t been too long since the Kickstarter and they’ve already distributed around 900 pairs in just a few months. TOKAY generously sent two pairs to ShowGame towers for us to review – so Hani Pendlebury and Sean Colfer stepped up to the mark. Here’s what they thought.
tSG was given a sneak peak at a new stat taking app. Read our review here!
During the last ten years, the world of Ultimate has seen vast changes. The number of players around the world has exploded and that exponential growth, along with the technological advances that have changed everyone’s lives immeasurably, has led to some old ways of doing things falling by the wayside.
If you wanted to watch games from the best American teams ten years ago, it was via DVDs bought from American sites. If you wanted to learn about different coaching methods, you’d need to go to different coaching sessions or buy a book. If you wanted to get the news on what was going on around the world, you’d have to rely on tournament results posted sporadically on a number of websites or on mailing lists like Britdisc and Eurodisc. Ultimate-specific fitness didn’t really exist, either.
The Greatest Ultimate Bag made waves this summer when they gave free prototypes to various Frisbee-famous people in order to generate some buzz. We here at the Show Game were somehow deemed to be part of this illustrious crew, so Sean Colfer reviewed the bag to help you make up your mind on whether to support the Kickstarter.
The Ultimate bag market in the UK is largely saturated with camping bags – duffel-type bags by companies like The North Face and Patagonia. The attraction is obvious; Ultimate happens outdoors (mainly) and it rains outdoors (often). They come in various sizes, they have useful shoulder straps to make it easier to carry and they are easy to get your hands on since there are Mountain Warehouses, Blacks and Cotswold Outdoor shops everywhere.
