Excellent videos Charles. Should help a bunch of people, including me. The speed bump effect is definitely what i was doing wrong. Thanks for doing this, most appreciated. Bookmarking this one.

Thanks Charles. I will be putting your fine instruction to use. My pouch holding and release technique definitely needs further practice and experimentation before Nirvana can ever be achieved . . . Ha! This definitely helps.

Excellent video Charles! Charles Saunders told me that I had far too many toys! Hmmmm, does that that also apply to you? -- Tex :cookie:

I am sure you know the old saying ... Beware the man who has only one gun, because he probably knows how to use it well!

If that also applies to slingshots, then no one needs to beware of me!!!! :rofl:

Cheers ..... Charles

Thanks again to everyone for your kind comments.

I do not mean to condemn the speed bump effect if one is knowingly using it for good purpose ... I certainly use it when shooting bare back, for instance. But you do need to understand it well, what causes it, and how it throws the ammo. If you do not understand it, you are just as likely to cause yourself or your frame some severe damage.

Cheers .... Charles

Good topic and nice videos. I had a nasty hand strike last week shooting with a jagged rock (bad choice, I know). I wonder now if my grip on that rock (other than the fact that it may not have been properly seated in the pouch) may have caused the speed bump effect you describe. I think tea with the Queen would have been less painful. :slap:

Odd shaped rocks often result in a bad release ... resulting in fliers, fork and hand hits. That nasty speed bump effect strikes again!

I am so glad to have found this before my slingshot arrived! You've likely saved me quite a bit of pain.
