As the first one of a series of videos taken at the East Coast Slingshot Tournament in Alverton/PA (April/May 2010), in this presentation Jörg Sprave interviews the world reknown expert Jack Koehler. Jack wrote a fantastic book about slingshots (presented in the video), and also he designed a target slingshot that is very unique. Made out of polished exotic wood and stainless steel, this braced slingshot is outfitted with fiber optic sights! The slingshot is called "King Cat" and can be bought (where legal) for 88 US-$. You can order the book at amazon (14.95 US-$), here: tinyurl.com More details (and placing orders) about the King Cat slingshot here: www.supershooting.com
Upon special request, The Slingshot Channel looked into way how to shoot shot pellets with a slingshot. Using the conventional leather pouch does not work, as the pellets fly in crazy directions. Therefore a pouch has been formed from thin Kydex (a plastic that you can form by heating it). The new pouch holds up to 50 .177 (4.5mm) lead or steel pellets. Since it does not open fully, the groups are fairly tight, which is shown in the video. This includes slow motion scenes recorded in Hi Speed (1200 frames per second). Watch how the pellets smash through beer cans! Spectacular scenes. The slingshot used for these tests is the Cougar, the first commercially mass produced Jörg Sprave design. It is demonstrated in detail in another video. You can order your Cougar at www.dankung.com!

OK, I took the challenge and made an arrow shooting slingshot. I like lead and steel balls, but I realize that an arrow with a broad head can cause more damage. Those who want to hunt larger animals may have more success with arrows. So, here is my idea about how to shoot arrows from a slingshot. Of course I had watched the "Hunt big game with a slingshot" video series on youtube, and I think the "whisker buscuit" idea is valuable. But I did not want to spend 20 to 50 Euros just on the biscuit! So I had to solve a number of problems. 1. The draw length limitation Arrows are rarely longer than 32", and such long arrows weigh more than a .75" (19mm) lead ball! An increase of the draw length beyond 32" is absolutely necessary to achieve serious speed. So I added two metal tubes to the grip, moving the whisker biuscuit about ten inches towards the shooter. This way, you can draw out a 32" arrow 42" from the pouch. 2. The pouch problem Gripping the rear end of an arrow though a leather pouch is much harder than gripping a thick lead ball. The "golf tee" solution proved negative for the balance of the arrow, so I had to solve the issue otherwise. The solution: A change to the pouch! Close to the band attachment, one more hole was punched to either side of the pouch. Through these holes, rubber bands had been tied to both the upper and the lower rim of the pouch. This allows you to hold the bunched up rubber just like a slingshot ball, and it automatically squeezes the arrow ...
This is a brief review of the Barnett Diablo Slingshot made by Barnett Crossbows. If you would like to order this item online you can do so from Amazon.com at this link tinyurl.com I really enjoy shooting this sling shot and based on my limited experience with sling shots I find it to be as accurate and I am capable of being. The shots on the metal sign were about 15 yards and the shots of the hickory nuts out of the tree were about 25 and 30 feet up respectively. This sling shot really hits quite hard and will definitely take small game, I would highly recommend collecting quite uniform rocks or getting some steel or glass ammo for hunting use. I shot the nuts just to try something different and because they are everywhere right now. That said a mockernut hickory will definitely take out most small game! Also I was quite serious about using this as a guerrilla gardening tool. Not only can it be used with nuts and large seeds as I demonstrated in the video but you could also use small seeds by creating seed balls. A video on seed balls will be coming soon for MSB Members but basically you just combine clay, potting soil and seeds with water and let the balls harden. When left in a field they stay hard until the next rain fall. Again if you would like to order one of these only please consider using this link, tinyurl.com

This video features 14 fantastic slingshots (not 15 as said in the video, one model was taken out in post production).

Can a slingshot ball perforate a coconut? This is tested here, including high speed scenes of the impact. A new slingshot design is introduced, the "W". It uses very thick and extremely powerful rubber (Thera Tube silver), which is normally too tough for slingshots. But the new weapon masters it. Another production by The Slingshot Channel!
"Slingshot" by GMS GMS are Riktam (Shajahan Matkin) & Bansi (Josef Quinteros) GMS is aka the Growling Mad Scientists. Former members were Sebastian Claro & Jacob/Yakov Biton. The psytrance group Growling Mad Scientists (originally from Barcelona) regularly tour the world and have sold over 200000 albums on over 150 releases. GMS began when Riktam and Bansi met in high school at age 14 in Amsterdam. Both were passionate about electronic music, so the duo chose to leave school and seek their education in the club scene. Even though they were too young to legally enter a nightclub, Riktam and Bansi began spinning at clubs in Amsterdam. On most occasions, they had to be whisked into the building's side door to avoid scrutiny by the authorities. While in the DJ booth, they'd often receive double takes from clubbers who caught a glimpse of the two teenagers. This was the early '90s and Amsterdam's club/rave scene was in its infancy, and genres like Gabber dominated the fledgling culture. Two years later, Riktam and Bansi traveled to Goa and experienced a musical epiphany. It was in Goa, India they started playing Goa trance. In Goa, Riktam and Bansi DJ'ed at some of the wildest, most memorable parties of their young lives, which also brought them to gigs around Europe. When Riktam and Bansi returned to Amsterdam, one of their friends had purchased some recording equipment. They started their production career and called themself GMS After a few early singles, GMS released their ...
This is actually a review about three commercial slingshots (Barnett Strike, Trumark S9FO, BIG). They are compared to two homemade slingshots.

In order to test the impact of slingshot projectiles on animal tissue, several shots from a very powerful, home made slingshots are recorded in super slow motion. The results are most spectacular, including a shot that penetrated four inches of meat before it crushed the bone and was found later on when the fine meat was prepared.
Ballistic Gelatine is a certified material to test the impact of bullets and other projectiles. The material simulates flesh. Three different home-made slingshots and four different types of ammo are used against a 3 kg block of gelatine. The impact is recorded with a camcorder that records 1200 frames per second (super slow motion), so it is possible to watch the impressive and devastating hits in detail.
