So I have seen a lot of talking about the different types of bands, forks and pouches and that is GREAT but what about the ammo. Round is not a perfect aerodunamic shape as far as I know (correct me if I am wrong). A Speed bicycle helmet is more of a drop shape. Maby the tail could go throug the pouch and the thicker part inside? Or what about the shape of a golfbal? With litle dents on it? Or scraped lines on it, to get it to sort of spin?
There must be somthing to gain from a lesser air resestant shape?

Anyone tried this?

Would it bee possible to moald a lead ball as a golfball? Or to make it like that after? According to mythbusters (allways a good source) a dimpled golf ball travels up to ca35% longer than a smoth... That is some major differnce! If one could make a ball with lesser air resestans, that would mean that it would go faster, that would mean fasterballs with lighter bands? or am i wrong in my conclusions here?
maby I should try fyrig golfballs... probably need a pritty big sling and bands for that=)
