I enjoyed both videos. In the photo below is something, some of you might recognize. I found them at an "Olde Time Store". The are little twists of paper that have a product in the ball part that snaps when they receive a percussion. Either thrown at a hard surface or hit with some thing like a slingshot, shot. They are right around the 8-9mm size. I like these since I don't have a high speed camera to see whether the shot hit the string or the shot. And I have hit the string on a target many times( not saying you hit the string Hawk, but it occurred to me). The pop verifies a hit because they don't pop unless you actually hit the ball part. I mount them at the end of a string with tape.I don't hit the ball often. So my hat is off to you Hawk for hitting the first shot.

Thats a good idea I like that, could make your own with flour if were not able to get hold of any,I pinched this idea as you can see from the chinese and plan on pinching another of their ideas,and thats shooting two cans side by side in pairs ten in all dont know when I will get around to it though soon I hope,If anyone has any ideas out their let me know challenges are good for improvement.I have been shooting slingshots for a year now but have a long way to go and not many good years left (just turned 50)so improvment has to be fast lol.I have one Idea but dont know if I have the courage to attempt it and thats to contact guinness world records and try for as many can hits in an hour, pointless like many other challenges on guinness but never the less a challenge.
Right you asked for it, we done this years ago with darts, we took all night to put a dart in the hole without chipping the mint, so how about you put a bb though the hole in the mint from the same distance as you did the 8mm ball, ha ha you will need to put paper on the back of the mint and 50 packets of mints ha ha, jeff
