May 1, 2007

ASSURANCE INDUSTRIES introduces Perfect-O-Play, a 40 by 40 inch adjustable, standalone, universal practice net.

The target has blue, green, yellow and red Velcro target rings with diameters of 20 inches, 16 inches, 12 inches and nine inches. The largest, blue ring is beginner level and the smaller rings are targets for intermediate, expert and professional levels. Units come with 12 Velcro balls that cling to the stand. The stand is easy to assemble and can be adjusted from three inches above the ground to as high as 40 inches. This makes it suitable for a variety of sports practice, including darts, golf chipping, baseball, soft ball, football throwing, tennis serves, hockey shots and "Snag" golf bulls eye.

There is no minimum order requirement. The wholesale price is $75 a unit, and the suggested retail price is $149.

It has a flat surface on the back for holding snack foods, and four indentations for holding beverage cans. In addition, it has an underwater mesh bag that can keep eight cans cold under water. A hand pump for inflating the duck is included, and units are packaged ready for in-store display.

The minimum order for inflatable duck cooler is six units. The wholesale price is $6.90 a unit, and suggested retail is $14.99.
