I'm considering purchasing a pair of Air Trekkers as a Christmas present for someone. A number of years ago I looked into getting a pair of these for myself, and seem to remember that all the amazing tricks in the showreels are on a special athlete-only model that is not available to the public. The website says you can jump 3-5 meters (over 15 feet) on them, but the home-videos I looked at on YouTube have people jumping between six inches and two feet.
Out of all the spoiled little rich kids on NS, someone must have some personal feedback on these. Are they worth the $350? Are they fun, or just a serious letdown? Is jumping over cars easy and carefree, or is jumping over a milk carton more realistic?
