Tuff Balls
Aug 27th, 2019 at 11:27pm
 
I was in the grocery store the other day, and these balls were being sold in the pet section. They have approximately the same weight as a regular tennis ball, but they are less than half the size (1.8" diameter). I like them better than regular tennis balls. They are tougher, they appear to fly somewhat faster and they are more similar in size to the stones that I sling. They're also sold on Amazon.

Yes those small dog tennis balls are excellent non-lethal ammo for the sling. I'll need to keep this brand in mind. Might be good to have some on hand when I'm teaching someone to sling.

Good find. Sometimes the pet section has interesting projectiles.

Iíve gone through a ton of these, unfortunately they tend to wear and break along the seam, I guess itís part of my CSD (chronic-slinging-disorder).
