    You seem to be very cocky. I dont see an instructable of your catapult on your page. This is what it says,"The Great Knex Warrior has not posted any instructables yet... "

    A trebuchet is NOT a catapult. Catapults rely on a spring or something similar. Trebuchets use a falling weight. This is a trebuchet. +1 for size! _

    How about a supplies list? I cant tell what size sticks you used, let alone how many.
