FTC Meteor 2
The famous METEOR throwbags have been fully redesigned and improved. The range is now complete, from 225 to 385 g (7,9 to 13,6 oz), ideal for whatever throw technique you use!
The METEOR 2 is an innovative throwbag. They are made up of a metallic core and a polymer shell with 2 densities. The tear drop shape gives allows them to have great precision and a powerful throw. They have a much longer lifespan than with fabric bags!
The METEOR 2 contains no lead: no more lead balls spread in nature by a damaged throwbag.
The compact, streamline shape helps manipulating the bag in the tree. It is easily spotted as well, with the high visibility colours and “checkered effect”. The profile of the ring and its oblong section help fixing the line and prevents it from slipping.
Only one size for 5 weights, easily identified with the colours.
The METEOR 2 is equipped with a ring, with the insertion slightly lower than the tip - which lowers the rotation axis. When the throwline is pulled, the bag actually tips over around the axis and is easily pulled out of crotches. All the field tests showed a great ease to manage through tight branch unions.
They are very dynamic and accurate, which means that they shoot very fast and depending on the rebounds they can come back fast as well. As with all throwbags, it is recommended to use PPE (helmet, glasses and gloves). It is also essential not too try to catch a throwbag after it has been thrown.
The METEOR 2 is faster and more efficient than the traditional fabric bags. To compensate, it is possible to use the weight under the one usually used in textile.
The bags have an aerodynamic shape and do not vibrate in flight, which means that even on a windy day they will not deviate from their initial course. The aerodynamic design also helps to save energy - to reach greater heights with less effort.
