Introduction: The BEAST - Bart's Eight Arrow ShooTer

About: I made a beer mug with only a knife and a hatchet. I think that says a lot about me.

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 ;-)

    This is so neat looking!! I'm really excited to to make up one of these, as well as convert some of my arrows into takedown versions! I'm a new trad Archery guy and used to pump rocks out of my wrist rocket years ago. I got all the pieces for this beast, including an ammo pouch with a little hole in the center and some serving across it to knock an arrow while still being able to shoot the 11mm steel i picked up. I'm beyond pumped! Thank you for putting this out there!!
    Cheers, Aaron

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

    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 idea!!!....5 stars....gonna make one soon.

    Nice sling bow. I like how you used the climbers 8 as your frame. The zip ties might be a bit harsh on the bands though. The classic method of securing band would be to tie smaller rubber band around the large bands using a constrictor knot.
