lol I guess we'll find out in a few weeks Smiley

Really looking forward to slinging with louis Thumbs Up

I can say that with a balearic sling and style - I'd never hit a melon.
With my slings and style. Dunno how many shots but I'd definitely hit it - eventually Smiley

I'm currently printing the world's most hi-tech sling pouch from a urethane based industrial rubber (%95 done).
It's going to be an interesting contrast Smiley

I'm so inaccurate that I will not take the challenge. Smiley
But otherwise sometimes need to throw a watermelon.

Back in the summer, I could keep some fairly tight groupings with consistent ammo.

My trajectory isn't as flat as his at 25m but after some practice at that distance I could probably hone in enough to hit a melon after awhile. He is still a dang good slinger though.

I was pretty good at slinging like 10 years ago.

Good precision, but in fact for the world best slinger I would even expect more, something like 100% from 25 m.  Grin

I've been following Mr. Livermore for years now. He is the best. Slinging different shaped rocks, even if they are round is extremely difficult. The fact that he threw about 6 rocks before nailing the target dead on each is proof of his greatness. I'm not quite that good but I'm close. Anyone that laughs or mocks his abilities is an inexperienced poopy talker. That's all.

You rock Mr. Livermore, literally Wink

You can also tell he is good and consistent cause all his shots are tightly grouped. He's sending them where he wants them,  and with authorité!

Agreed, he's got some power behind those shots, and he's putting them in probably a 1 foot group at distance.  Most people have trouble shooting a handgun that accurately.

In terms of accuracy and power I don't know of anyone better than Mr. Livermore.

That's a cool fact! I might have to look into how accurate people are with other weapons in comparison

Lui is really a very good slinger. However, there are better. Please review the list of federatio balear. I do not understand the euphoria.

Jaegoor, I suppose we are out of the loop. We have all watched the History channel film on David and Goliath. In it he is called the champ and the best. I guess we are all just going by that.
So who is number 1 on the list??????
