Introduction: The BEAST - Bart's Eight Arrow ShooTer

It doesn't happen often to me being really satisfied with a project, or calling one of my own projects 'megacool'.
This time it's different! I'm proodly presenting you my newest deadly weapon: The BEAST - bart's eight arrow shooter ;-)
Cool, fast, simple, powerful, accurate!

All you need:
- a climber's eight / figure eight / abseilacht
- a strong rubber band
- some paracord
- a few stretchers
and of course, a few arrows

Step 1: Prepare the Band

Cut the rubber band in two.
Prepare a piece of paracord: three inches long.
Fix the paracord to the rubber bands: two eight knots, two stretchers.
Cut the excess cord & stretchers. Burn the tips of the paracord.

Step 2: Fix the Band to the Eight

Use stretchers: easy & solid!

Step 3: Shooting Time!

The BEAST is ready, you never imagine how effective it is!

Tip: if you add a coil with some lengths of fishing wire you'll have THE tool to go creek fishing!
I know what I'm gonna do one of the following nights ;-)

Thanx again for watching, and thanxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx to all subscribers. I appreciate, really ;-)

    Nice, but what is the draw weight?

    bart did you try doing it on the smaller ring of the eight or does it damage the feathers??

    I didn't - my hands are to small to hold the thing correctly on the big side..

    latex tubing! like the bands on a hunting slingshot... they sell it in like 20ft pieces at lowes for like 10-15 bucks

    After reading this, I've been searching for slingbows. I've seen that Theraband Gold (highly rated) and also spear gun rubber could be used.

    Great idea, and I will try it BUT....

    You attached the bands using zip ties. A temporary(dangerous) solution at best, trust me I know.
    I make slingshots/catapults as a hobby and band attachment, the right way, is easy.
    Just ONE way http://youtu.be/4bjSxWOWEH0

    Great video - gives a very clean attachment that sounds supersafe. Thanx!

    Where to buy the "a climber's eight / figure eight / abseilacht"?? Got a link??

    Got mine on ebay...plenty of them to choose from.
