The thing with this challenge is that the rules make the game.
Because you can only score max 1 point per throw.
Ammo is restricted, so you canít throw beachballs , tennis ball diameter or smaller. Distance has a minimum but no maximum and cans should be level.

Everyone can try to ďcheatĒ better numbers but honestly when you go out and try you realise itís alot harder than you think.

Time pressure makes it hard , because itís not a continuous clip where you get into a groove.

You start with all cans up so at best you get a few free misses if you wanted to dirty edit it but after that itís pure skill. Sure you could put infinite cans level in a line and just wing it
but still that means your super consistent on one plane.

Itís a hard challenge and I actually agree with joe that a single static can fixed that didnít move might actually be easier, and would also allow for much dirtier editing in regards to the 1 minute clip.

So far I think everyone has done great in that regard, very honest clips.

Iíve been saving cans to retry this but Iím out of practice and have been cheating on my sling with my bow lately.

Just had a good day of practice.

Got to say, this forum has some great Sling makers.
I was testing a few different slings today made by NOOC and  Curious Aardvark. I matched my best with both slings.

Still standing at 3 cans.

This is a great training tool

Amazing stuff! You need more tennis balls though. I think you could get more if you didn't have to wait for bouncebacks. A proper sling bag would give you more time too.

I agree with Kick. Seems like you had enough time for a 4th hit on that second run. That is really impressive man. So far 3 is still the one to beat.

Really great Mersa!† I'll be getting back to this again at some point.

I agree 100% on having enough ammunition that you don't need to chase it down.† I've been using rusty balls and keep them in a bucket.† I think I usually throw 12-14 in a minute.† Depends how clean reloading is.† But yeah, that break in your rhythm to stop a rolling ball is an unneeded disruption.

And +1 for Morphy to be the first to 4.† Cheesy

Great job Mersa!  I wish I could give more credit to that amazing sling, but that would not do justice to your skill and hard work.

The more people who try the better.

Nooc your tennis ball sling is a major component.
Itís very rare I change slings and I used yours for most of the session.  CAís is also great.

im not sure.
It would be cool if it was, i can only sling at that range in my house and did that 2 hours every day for a long time (i practise with coins)
just to let you know, i didnt count the time i spend looking for my ammo, because i only had one tennisball. i just put it  next to my feet and started the timer again
