not just a great shot.
But throwing 50m accurately with an 18 inch sling - not easy.
You really have to put some effort into  - hence the crack we heard from the sling.

And the harder you throw - the more difficult it is to be accurate.

I'm not surprised you were grinning at the end of the video Thumbs Up
Very nice Smiley

To save your legs - set up several targets at once next time whistle

And yeah - fantastic slinging area !

I've been finding I've been doing better with shorter songs than my usual "average" but that's inside with sockballs so I still need to do outside rock tests. Great shot!

Citation needed.

There’s a decade-old thread debating the accuracy of  “lobbers” and “whangers”. I’m pretty sure the above statement is not settled or reflective of any sort of consensus.

Almost two years now. I try to practice at least once or twice a week.
