Title: Throwing Sticks (fishing implement)
Post by PolemosLithoi on Oct 16th, 2020 at 6:53pm
This is my first post so hello everyone!

I was trying to watch videos on throwing sticks as used in hunting.
I stumbled across something used to throw bait when fishing.
It also happens to be called a throwing stick.
This appears to be very similar to a device timpa made from a shovel handle (http://slinging.org/forum/YaBB.pl?num=1601762883), although the curve makes me think it has a more natural release and might make it more easy to put more power in the throw.

Has anyone seen anything like this?
Is there a weapon I haven't heard of?

In the video he mentions throwing bait (probably not the densest projectile) 175 yards.

Ah but Tomberlaine, that's a rabbit stick where you throw the whole stick, with the bait thrower you put the bait in the end then swing the stick to throw it. It works more like these tennis ball throwers:

You don't actually throw the stick I showed.
The stick I am showing is hollow (it is a tube) and used to throw projectiles.
Your PDF looks interesting.
I wish I could read it haha

Thank you!
Similar to that or the skepifletta mentioned in this thread: http://slinging.org/forum/YaBB.pl?num=1601762883
But the tube is hollow, just like the the tube thrower that thread is about.
