Axe Pros’ Digital Targets Put New Twist on Ax Throwing
Adding a novel slice to the ax throwing trend, Axe Pros (Booth #5419) debuted digital targets at IAAPA Expo. Guests now can hurl axes at images of devils, creepy clowns, and even some political figures.
The targets also can be customized to whatever the operator wants, said Stan Checketts, president and CEO. “If you want a picture of your ex-wife, we can put it on there.”
The lightweight hatchets stick easier than their traditional heavier counterparts, broadening ax throwing’s demographics and making it a more enjoyable attraction for children.
“I have 35 grandkids, and the ones as young as 10 years old can throw them,” he said. “They love it.”
