How accurate is it

I did not know a single stick may be a slingshot. Does it work well? Nice job, Anton, but please, don't kill birds.
Yes we have 'single sticks' in our place but our projectiles are different. We use an improvised arrow and not stones or marbles or bearings. For the arrows, we use 6 inch nails with flattened tips designed into arrowheads and 'feathered' tails. We fabricate a catch in the arrowhead and this will be hooked to the sling in shooting. We call them 'Indian Pana'. :-)
Any photo, please?
Here's a sample. However, using yarn as 'feather' is not a good idea since it might get tangled in the process of shooting causing the arrow to swing back at the shooter. Its better to use hemp. :-)

Been a long time since I've seen a sling bow
Maybe usign less yarn (1/2 or 1/3 quantity) the effect could be better and safer. Nice idea, anyway.
Interesting, thanks.
You're welcome. These slingshots are used by gangs in my country. When 'laced' with poison, its devastating. :-)
Oh, that must be terrible. In addition, the harpoon tip dart itself is frightening.
why not kill birds?
Because "a bird flying worth over a hundred in hand"
a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush
but the bird in your hand WILL peck you
what u mean?

It work well as a normal slingshoot. And I will newer kill birds.

Nice work. I would also recommend putting a cloth between the rubber and the branch before tying them with a rubber band (do not use string). The sharp or coarse surface of the branch will eventually produce cuts in your rubber and you don't want this to happen. The cloth prevents this from taking place. :-)

have you tried using the metal bit of a bicycle seat underneath it for the sling shot instead of wood
i tried it for a pocket sized slingshot and it works really well thanks
Anton1995 (author)  carlg146 years ago
No,but it is very good idea.

How far do they fire?
Anton1995 (author)  Wolf Seril6 years ago
about 30 meters(100 fets)
I think the shot is greater than 30 meters, much more.

Unless you refer to the effective shot.
