Thanks man!  No other tests as of yet.  Different positioning in the pouch is definitely something I want to try, along with the looped retention cord as IG mentioned to stabilize the arrow until release.

It's super fun when the projectiles are ice, but it's too time consuming to make them when I only get 10 throws and then the testing is over until another batch is made.  I think I'm going to order some of those rubber balls Morphy posted and was slinging in another thread.  I think they should be pretty cheap and an easy conversion to add the tail end of an arrow.

I present my bird seed-bird shot glande. Shelled corn held together with a paste made from cooked water and flour. Still a work in progress, some will survive a good throw and landing while others explode when leaving the pouch.

This is really kind of a brilliant idea. This is the opposite of a hunting glande then?

My idea behind creating glandes is making something repeatable, cheap and biodegradable.
