Here's a challenge. Take a fish with a sling and stone.


Does the species matter? Because my local supermarket has tilapia cheap right now.

What's a spiral shot? You mean rifled throws? or using a jagged rock so it spirals through the air?

Itís not that difficult. This sling uses 425 paracord... 3mm diameter. I believe I mailed one of them to you around a year ago. You should try for yourself and post a video  Grin

surely a rifled thro is just the missile spinning ?
Tha's all the rifling on a gun barrl does, is spin the bullet.

If you want a challenge - throw something from a sling without spin Smiley
Much harder.

Great throw there Mersa!† I think that's another one that should go into the "unicorn" bag.† I am going to give all those another try.† Maybe that will be my time filler next year.

Na itís not that difficult. Basically itís just setting it up right .
You did the same shot basically with the paper targets?

This thread has definitely given us both a lot of cool challenges.
I actually was playing around and caught a tennis ball in a closed sling , I tryed to do it again and get it on film but I couldnít do it again, Iíll keep at it here and there but like you say between all the challenges like 1min can and pumpkin Iíll have enough to practice.

Did this the other day , I made a setup for something else special but my reload time needs LOTS of work
