When I was a child, my life was to play marbles. Hours and hours, each day during years.

But the marble was placed not between the second phalanx of the index finger and the last of the thumb, but directly between the tip of the index and the juncture between the first and second phalanges of the thumb. So the shoot was very strong and more controllable.

 Oh that sounds great but i might not be as experienced as you and it sounds like you have a great way to shoot it to.

You must consider that in "my time" there was not TV, PC, web, etc. Only cheap toys, and a lot of fantasy.  A bromstick was a horse, a stone was a car, etc.
