Just so it's clear, the first projectile that is thrown in the air is not the target in this challenge.† The first projectile is only the timer.† Say you pick a car as your target (not for real, just hypothetical).† You need to sling a rock (essentially straight) up in the air.† Then load another rock and hit the car with it before the first rock comes back to the ground.

That said, if you want the first projectile to be the target for the second, that's totally fine.† Not required though.

Glad to see you're in on this one Mersa!† We have a pretty good group going for this one.


That makes more sense. Now all I need to do is get the first projectile stuck in a tree!

Awesome man!† Perfect! Thumbs Up
I'm planning for an attempt this afternoon.† I hope I get it to look as smooth as you did.


@IG - I'd be into that.† Although I would probably need to attach a straw or stick to the card, and then a larger target to the other end.† Just to get a larger area to hit.† Although that might be cheating.† Roll Eyes

The setup of the bottles still seems like it would be tough enough by itself.

Nice Mersa!  I'm curious, why the switch to figure 8? Faster? more accurate?

No snow down here, was 32 degrees cel here yesterday, as you can see I was at the beach , ha ha.

Switched to figure 8 because itís faster from the drop to throw.

Man, Joe, I've been meaning to do this, but my usual go-to park is very soggy.  Hopefully, this coming weekend...

So I did attempt this and got plenty of video but I was throwing it up with my left hand and could not manage to get the shot off fast enough lol. This makes a lot more sense. I'll have to try again. Awesome videos guys!
