WOW!!

Now THAT is a "hand cannon"!

What do you think caused the backfire? Please be careful, we would hate to lose you to a 50 lb/ft "RTS" (Return to Sender, what many of us call a backfire).

Fantastic looking slingshot, too!

What a fantastic display of power! Congratulations!!!! And man oh man, if that backfire had caught you in the forehead, we would not be getting any more videos from you ... be careful! Thanks so much for the video. I thought you were going to blow the back wall out!!!

Cheers ..... Charles

Thanks, this slingshot and bands are not bad.

The RTS shots was just fun because nothing is happened :) it could have ended differently, I had good luck

i think about upload a video with more details from the RTS Shots?

i have no idea why they came back.

i made a few pics from the pouch, it was actually a good pouch.

The hole was not very large, i made you a few pics you can see the crater in this 20mm bord and also the damage in the sandstone wall behind me.

Anyway, if i had no return shots i think i can made 60 m/s - 120 Joule.

If some one stronger and taller than me, he can made much more.

All right ... Henry has been making fun of me because I am younger than he is, but my power shots are down near the bottom of the heap ... heavy sigh ... :(

Soooo, I figured it was time for me to regain my manhood. My video is below ... here are the details.

Frame: extended King Cat

Bands: Alliance Sterling 107s, half doubled

Band length: 12.5 inches fork to pouch tie

Draw length: about 52 inches

Ammo: 255 grain steel ball (weighed on my digital scale)

Top 3 velocities: 203.3, 200.5, 208.0 all in fps

Energy at top velocity: 24.5 fpe, 33.22 joules

O.K. Henry ... over to you!!!!

Cheers .... Charles

Thanks for the kind words. For these bands, I think 20 mm steel is too heavy to make the cut-off velocity of 180 fps. I just used some steel balls that weigh 332 grains = 21.513 grams to shoot 192.9 fps, which gives 27.44 fpe = 37.20 joules. (The video will be up soon.) The bands just might be able to push a 350 grain ball over the 180 fps limit, but I do not have anything at that weight. I do have larger steel balls, but they are too heavy for those office rubber bands.

I sure wish I had your strength so I could pull full butterfly with a regular frame!!!

Cheers ..... Charles

Your right! you need speed for the Joules... i also like the 20mm more than the 25mm because they are faster it´s speed and power.

just in case you want to test my standard bands i use for 16mm steel (around 80 m/s)

cut 36mm fork side 18mm pouch side two layer per side old TB Gold 30cm long / 155 cm draw lenght these are no powerbands but they are quite strong.

Thanks for the specs, Tobias. When my joints recover from my last shooting session, I may give it a try.

Here is my effort for today. I managed to up my energy level to 27.44 fpe = 37.20 joules.

Frame: extended King Cat

Bands: Alliance Sterling 107s, half doubled

Band length: 12.5 inches fork to pouch tie

Draw length: about 52 inches

Ammo: 332 grain steel ball (weighed on my digital scale)

Top 3 velocities: 188.3, 191.7, 192.9 all in fps

Energy at top velocity: 27.44 fpe, 37.20 joules


Not too shabby for office rubber bands ... Just trying to stay ahead of Henry!!! :wave:
