Sling vs 2 Watermelons
Apr 7th, 2013 at 7:10pm
 
Nick here again!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LT4h9mNEhvs

With no coconuts left I decided to pit the sling against two huge watermelons! I choose the biggest watermelons I could possibly find, so big in fact I needed to use seat belts to keep them in the backseat of my car!

Anyway, here it is! Hope you enjoy watching!

Thanks,

Nick

Awesome video!  That's crazy how many of those stones exploded.  I have had that happen to me, but it is rare.
I love the slow-mo destruction!

Grocery stores throw out lots of fruit and veggies that don't sell and start going bad.  Usually, you can get some if you explain what you are going to do with it.

Very nice fast slinging, Camo-sling. The montage either. How far the target was from you?

In the shape, structure and position of each stone, there is recorded a small piece of history. So, slinging them, we add a bit of our history to them.
