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.

Awesome! I do like the idea of it being completely biodegradable and also good for the birds. Seem to fly pretty well considering the material.

LOL!  I love the name of that video.  Cheesy

Good idea!  And I agree with Kick.  Those seemed to fly well.

They aren't bad. Depending on your paste ratio, some hard throws disintegrate the glandes shortly after leaving the pouch, which to be honest leaves me with a feeling that my throws are too powerful. "EgoEggs™ you ever throw a stone over those mountains?"

Haha but I've noticed the smaller\seeds grains produce a denser glande, but seem more prone to me naturally giving it all the mustard I can do which gives me the cool visual of the glande just slowly getting smaller.

Another fun bonus if you don't like geese you can whip these at them 😂 haha I kid

I made a prototype only to lose it in the field.
Typical long distance ammo always buries itself into another dimension.
