The Shock Absorber is an interesting bag design that hides a secret: its center is hollow! The only fill used in the bag is held inside the 12 three-dimensional pentagons making up the outer shell. Each exterior pentagon ends up being a small bag of its own, and all 12 are sewn together to form the overall footbag with 36 panels total.
It's a little larger than most of my other footbag designs and it makes a great kicking bag: because of its hollow center, it absorbs the shock of each kick. And the fall colors on this one are great for this time of year!
