Recreational device for impelling an object

Image Number 2 for United States Patent #4488723.

A recreational device 10 for impelling an object comprises a generally upright shaft 12 having a lower end 20 and an intermediate part 22; a lever arm 14 having a heel portion 40 and an upper actuation portion 42 pivotally connected to the lower end 20 of the shaft 12; a stabilizing link 24 pivotally connected to the intermediate part 22 of the shaft 12, and a linkage assembly 32 for urging the object forwardly in response to downward movement of the shaft 12, the reaction of the heel portion 40 against a surface, and the forwardly and downwardly swinging of the lever arm 14.
