About

Hi! Thanks for checking out our project.  With your help we hope to bring Bendercup to market and share it's addictive game play with outdoor game and disc enthusiasts everywhere.

Bendercup is a new disc game that challenges player accuracy and coordination.

Gameplay

Bendercup is played with a disc, four poles and four cups. Points are awarded when one team hits their opponents' pole with the disc. The opponents have the opportunity to negate points by catching the thrown disc and the cup that is launched off the struck pole.

Packaging

Package Dimensions: Length = 29in, Height = 4.25in, Width = 9.75in

Set Includes: 1 Disc (135g), 4 Fiberglass Poles, 4 Bendercup cups, 1 Carry Case, Instructions

Design

We spent the past year designing the Patent Pending technology behind the cups and poles to make Bendercup a unique and intense game play experience. 

Unpredictable Cup Trajectory

The Bendercup cup obtains individual internal fins which have randomized teeth along the bottom edge of the fin.  These teeth cause a physical interruption between the natural interaction of the fin and cap when the pole is struck with the disc.  As a result, this interruption causes an unpredictable cup trajectory off the top of the pole making for a challenging catch.

Pole Design

The fiberglass pole has a natural flexibility and a durable quality that interacts perfectly with the patent pending cup design. Additionally, each pole is comprised of three colored sections that collapse like tent poles for mobility and easy setup.

The Future of Bendercup

The future of Bendercup only starts here at Kickstarter. Our plan is to develop a sports community behind Bendercup. This means, Bendercup organized, country-wide tournaments with prize money and even a national championship. We want to celebrate our game and the players who love it by creating opportunities to interact and compete.

We're also excited to support other members of the disc community, be it Disc Golf, Freestyle and especially Ultimate "Frisbee". We'll do this by running tournaments that generate funding for individuals as well as college and club teams in their competitive seasons.

Where you come in

We've developed, designed and branded a product that we love and we think you'll love too. We need your help to take Bendercup to the next level by generating funding for manufacturing. By pledging a minimum of $50 you're pre-ordering a Bendercup set and helping kick start our dream.

Thanks for checking out our Kickstarter campaign and learning about Bendercup. We hope you're as excited as we are about playing our game. Feel free to comment with any questions about Bendercup and we'll do our best to answer ASAP.
