Nice Joe! Ok now I have to ask because this falls in line with an idea for ammo I had...

Does the feather twist correlate with the spin your sling produces???  Cheesy

Unfortunately not.† I used pretty junky old arrows, so no helical fletching.† Sad

But some good news.† I wanted to see the video too, so I've got it cut together already.† Doing a final review now and will get it uploaded.† So hang tight guys!† You should have it in an hour or so!

Nice Joe!  I think you could help the tangling issue just by adding a small loop on the retention cord that the end of the arrow fits into.  They sure flew straight after about 10 yards or so. I wonder how they'd do with some power behind them.

Those work amazingly well! I did not expect them to line up that quickly but they flew incredibly straight. An advantage with this is the enemy can#t sling them back at you Cheesy

That was an awesome video, I think with a little fiddling you could really make them work. Imagine the satisfaction of consistency, always hitting point first , would be cool to watch  as you throw. And lighted nocks, night slinging.

I really dig it !!

Well done joe
Video was quality as always

I cant help but always be amazed see fletching orientate projectiles in slow motion. Maybe its because Im in Texas but it remind me of a cowboy riding bucking bull. Yee Haw!

Seriously though love it bro!

Thanks guys!† I was quite shocked by the video and how well those things worked.† I was expecting a random tumble after the release.† Although I guess there's no reason why they wouldn't fly similarly to a dart or the kestros that Sarosh has worked with.

That could work.† Trying to keep the projectile stable in the pouch definitely restricted the speed that could be used.† I'll make another batch and give it a try.† I wish I could make them more quickly.† With the arrows sticking up, I can only get 6 in the freezer at a time.

That makes two of us.† I wish I had left more ice arrows for the camera being set up next to the target.† There were only two left at that point.† But I think that last slow motion shot was by far the coolest one.

love the ice arrows. Thumbs Up

so the obvious question: which is the more accurate: Iceballs with OR without the arrow shaft ? 

And when does the green costume and pointy ears arrive ?
Just asking for my mate gannon...

Who is still planning on posting a submission? I have some ideas but they are barely even worthy of being called abstract. My feathered dirtclod I think is too ahead of its time so I might need to put it aside for a couple years.

Thanks CA!

Not sure on the accuracy question yet.† I definitely want to play around with these a little more.† Although one problem is that I only have 10 of those shafts.† I'm going to try to get a few more together, but the rest of my "junk" arrows are in pretty bad shape.† I'm probably going to need to put new fletchings on them to be usable.† With only 10, sling sessions are very short and I don't really have a feel for them as a projectile yet.

I think I need to switch the ice out for something reusable.† But then the ice explosion is lost.† Sad

Oh, and green suit will be coming near the end of October.† Wink

why not use squash balls filled with epoxy putty, shove the shaft in and you've got re-useable ice-free 'ice arrows'.
ready to throw in about 10 minutes.

Add a few detonator caps at the end with a small incendiary, before adding the epoxy and shaft and you've got some 'Fire Arrows' Smiley

But squash balls and epoxy Thumbs Up

Great video Joe.  Thatís pretty awesome how it stabilizes in flight halfway through the flight.  Have you tried sticking the arrow out sideways instead of in line with the cords?
