Nice! Quite coincidentally, it looks like my catapult too! Except, I wish I came up with this idea. Not only is it more powerful (at least for me), but it is smaller. Love it.

snipeyouout (author)2007-08-18

ya the orange piece, the one with two connectors

snipeyouout (author)2007-08-14

the best ammo is the orange piece

killer k (author)snipeyouout2007-08-14

orange peice? dnt u mean the light gray connector but u just got som that are orange cuz i ahv som of those

Vertigo666 (author)2007-08-11

Instead of leaving the rubber bands the way they are, put the arm through the 2 of them, and twist them once or twice before putting the whole thing back, should get more power
