Title: Hello!
Post by Dawesome21 on May 24th, 2018 at 11:32am
Thanks for the add -- I'm in Cache Valley, Utah.† Just started slinging tennis balls with a paracord sling and a pouch cut from an old t-shirt.† Going to try to make a netted sling soon.† I have also made a short sling stick with a leather pouch that throws golf balls.† I build trebuchets as a bit of a hobby so I got into slinging from there since trebuchets are sort of an evolution of the sling.† Attached is a picture of my latest trebuchet, named Garbo (because he was built with scrap wood and bits of dead trees).† Garbo is about 7 feet tall to the axle.

Thanks guys!  The stick sling I made for golf balls throws about 400 feet.  Garbo likes to throw 500ml water bottles 300 feet.

Welcome from TX!
If you havenít already, check out the roboslinger topic in the maths section. We could use your mad trebuchet building skills around here :)
