If you go much longer than +20" you'll probably have trouble loading it. The one I shoot is half the size of my blowgun but packs considerably more wallop!Talking about longer arms. Is there a length limit on 'starships'?Hey Bean! That was some mean shooting! I had to laugh watching your eyes as you were stretching to do that full draw!!!! By the way, do your knuckles drag the ground when you walk??? :rofl: Yeah .... if we all had longer arms, we would all shoot a lot faster ...
Cheers ....... Charles
Yeah. Sorry, man, but there's no way that band setup is going to toss 5/8" steel at almost 250fps.Good on ya for having a crack at the power club BC! Unfortunately I doubt this an accurate chrony reading given the amo, band cut and draw length.. not in any way am I being critical, or trying to rain on the parade, but I think a 3/8 steel would struggle to hit 250fps with this set up.. keep at it though and do try the paper method for a more accurate result, cheers BenWell I finally decided to get off my butt and enter this competition. My average velocity was 247 fps and an average fpe of 34.3.
The slingshot I was using was a holy fork with 24 cm long active band length, 1.5 cm tapered to 1 cm thera band gold. The ammo was 5/8" steel weighing 253.24 grain. I set up the chrony using Mjs tutorial, and was 180" away from my target. My draw length was around 36". The pouch was constructed out of a work glove that was very thin but strong leather.
I hope I answered everything correctly and followed the rules properly.
Cheers BC-Slinger :king:
The app has been proven to work fine as long as it's set up properly. A traditional chrony is easier to use, for sure.Well ladies and gentlemen after testing similar bands we used before on Charle's 'King Cat' slingshot. We decided to up the anti and use much larger rounds and figured since starships are fair game we decided what the heck. I would say you guys that were sceptical about the smart phone chrony app were right. It doesnt quite read as accurately as the chrony.
