For the Power Rangers it would be fascinating to know the details of how each of these terrific shots was achieved in terms of the type and size of band/tube used and the draw length. Does the info exist anywhere already ?

Power Rangers members must submit a video and list their equipment. It is all in the Power Rangers Topic.

Am I allowed to enter this competition? I know the Pocket Shot is not exactly a "slingshot" but pound for pound I'd like to go toe to toe with somebody elses best most powerful version and see how it holds up.

Anyone got a tiny slingshot 2.3 inches or smaller that is super powerful please send me a video or link.

thanks

(maybe I should start a new thread for this)

All you need is a chronograph and a video camera. The size of the frame does not really matter.

Cheers .... Charles

Thanks Charles

I seen the calculation chart once before, and have been looking for the chrony Connect app for some time.
