Advantages: Endless fun, High quality material, value for money
I orignally purcahsed the speed stacks set to obtain the stackmat timer, for which I was planning to use for speedcubing. However once I had bought it I decided that I may aswell try out the speed stacks aswell, it was easy to get into and fun aswell.
The set provides a DVD explaining all about the sport of speed stacking, what you have to do and the rules etc, and it also explains a little bit about the history of speed stacking. The set also includes 12 stacking cups, a mat for stacking the cups and the timer. The cups are of a very high quality plastic (though not for drinking due to little air holes) and the mat is also of a high quality, enabling just the perfect amount of friction required for keep the cups stable. The timer is accurate to within 0.01 seconds and is easy to operate, and also provides a function for saving times in its memory.
I purchased this particular set in Woolworths just before they went into administration in late 2007 so the price has come down a little, but back then I purcahsed for £27.99, I would consider this good value for money with everything provided, it can provide endless fun, especially for those with a competitive nature. Nowaday it can be purchased in most toy shops and places like Argos.
This is the perfect product for a christmas gift as it isn't something that will be used only once. I would recommend
