1 Eur a piece, rugby shaped tennisball dog toy. I will test it out soon and if it slings well go back and buy some more.

That's pretty cool. It would be interesting to see a distance throwing test between that and a normal tennis ball.

I'd like to try slinging that.  I'll bet it really flies.

Nice! Where did you find this?
And are they resilient?
I had issues with cheapest tennis balls: they won't stand twenty minutes of slinging against a wall, and all of them end up split in two. Switching to standart quality ball, there was no problem any more, but the cost was almost double...

From the Action (store)

You can see the seam in the middle. It's a squaky toy too. It would probably snap in half the first time you sling it hard against a wall point first. So definitely need a soft backstop for these.

One problem, I slung this one but I had a misthrow, it flew in the bushes and I still have to refind it. Tongue I think I will still buy some more though. They would look great in any ammo collection.

One problem for me would be the area I sling in. Lots of bushes and long grass. I just lost a tennis ball today and those don't bounce in crazy unpredictable directions like a rugby ball shape would.

I also have a rugby dog toy. It's a little bigger.
