Abstract Ammo Design 2021!
Mar 29th, 2021 at 9:44pm
 
Hello all,

Itís that time again! I think this could be even more important than the abstract sling design thread. Iíve had extensive conversation in private with half a dozen people on this subject and the things that have been proposed have been nothing short of incredible. I really hope you all will take part in this thread!

Of course there will be a prize or prizes. But thatís not the most important part. The ways that ammo design can change and improve slinging are almost unlimited.

Please take part if this subject at all interests you! As with the Abstract Sling Design thread theories are fine but to be eligible to win you must have a prototype with at least a picture and it must be ďreasonablyĒ likely to work. Lol.

Taping a laser pointer to a rock and calling it a laser guided glande would be funny, but wonít qualify you for the prize.  Grin

Lastly, thereís a new prize in these threads! A door prize! Even if you think your idea is not quite as good as the other entries, if you post it and itís a legitimate design you are eligible for the door prize!!! All entries will be put in a hat and a random name will be pulled on video. The winner gets a prize even if your entry doesnít get a single vote!

So, if that hasnít convinced you, lastly know you will grace the Hall of Fame for the rest of this year. Women will stand in awe of you. Men will take off their hat as you pass and children will throw away their Batman pajamas and replace them with YOU pajamas.

So join one and all!!! Let the contest begin!!!  Cheesy Wink

Wool dryer balls are great indoor/tag ammo... but thatís not an entry.  Itís a statement Iíve said before.

I want to sling a super bouncy ball in a small room. Why? Because some people just want to watch the world burn...

so are we going with mersa's categories ?
makes more sense than to lump in collapsed deuterium glandes with piezo electric stun balls.

In theory i have two.
1 is proven and used the world over - I've just never documented it.
And the other I can possibly design, just still not sure about how to manufacture one lol
Plus it would reallyu work best with a smoke trail - I mean that part i can do.
Hmm, now there's an idea.

What's the time limit on this ?

So yeah I'm in.

I wasnít intending on making categories just saying there are areas where you could make something special.

Iím excited about this one . I have a few ideas as well

People can choose a category and his list is good. But if someone has something outside the list they want to add I have no problem with that.

The Abstract Sling Design went on for a little bit. Im thinking at least a month to a month and a half for this thread.

But this time I will gather up the entries at the end and the voting thread will be separate. The other way was a bit confusing until we ended up doing it like that.

Today is April 1st. Lets shoot for May 10th. That gives even the busiest among us time to knock out a good design.

This is the Way.  Wink

I got tons of ideas on this. I'll have to start making some. Is it too late to get in on the abstract sling thread too?

Too late to win as Zud has already done that but you are always welcome to post more.

Next years Sling Design thread hopefully will have even more people and im sure the prizes will be just as good if not better.
