Title: Speed Measurement with Tennis balls

Mrjugas had similar results ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xJooCQldw0M ) now I wonder if there is a speed limit with tennis balls in the same way there is a max range limit.

Nice video.  I always like your videos.  Your throws look so clean.

In regard to the speed limit of a tennis ball, are you referring to a limit when it leaves the sling?  Or something like a terminal velocity that the ball would reach during its flight path when its deceleration starts to level off?

Thanks man!
I think there is a velocity above which any extra effort is wasted because of steep drag increase.
I 'd like to see someone throw a tennis ball faster than 56m/s or further than 80m.
