Littlefish Loves: Hexcup

As we’re sure you know, our Littlefish Loves features are all about keeping busy traders up to date with the latest life-changing inventions and must-have product releases.

Sometimes, that can mean expensive supercars, fancy gadgets and futuristic tech. Sometimes, it can mean something as simple and inexpensive as a plastic cup designed especially for your favourite pub game.

Hexcup2That’s right – someone has finally invented cups specially designed for beer pong. The noble aim of creating the best beer pong cups in the world inspired William Heimsoth and Aaron Attebery to found a Kickstarter campaign to fund their genius invention. The master plan? To solve the biggest problems keen beer pong players face when tackling standard plastic cups.

Thorough and vigilant research (and, we imagine, a fair few serious beer pong tournaments) showed that three key features were required to create the ultimate beer pong cups. These are:

  • Fast re-racking with no gaps (difficult with standard round cups)
  • No “ghosting” (that’s movement during play, if you’re not down with the beer pong terminology)
  • Durability (no-one wants beer to start leaking out of cracked cup halfway through a game).

So, naturally, the game changing Hexcup offers all of these features and more. The hexagonal shape makes them easy to set up and prevents the cups moving around during the game (and your sneakier mates cheating by wobbling the table). And the reinforced plastic means they’ll still be around for your weekend games of beer pong in years to come. What a time to be alive…
