Now that the outdoors swimming season has started, I made a "maritim" inspired slingshot.

I laminated aluminum plates (stepping board) onto the Multiplex (birch plywood) frame! This reminds me on a pool ladder. It also makes the frame pretty much unbreakable, I guess.

Oh, and Poseidon loves golfing... that is why I made the frame real big, I plan to chuck golf balls from it.

This is a Croc Dundee moment.

I put Thera band Blue on it, and wrapped the upper part of the grip in Thera Blue as well (for enhanced grip comfort). The blue fits best with the theme.

I punched many holes in the huge pouch I need for the golf balls to make it lighter.

This works! Shooting golf balls is great fun. Very easy to grip, too. And you don't need telescopes to see where you hit the target :)

Great video, those golf balls seem to pack quite a punch.
