The Slingshot Channel now also as a blog.

Some people know me from my youtube videos and also from the forums I participate in.

I am a slingshot enthusiast and I build my own, very powerful models. I present them in video form on youtube, and by now I have about 100k views.

I also review commercial slingshots and do impact tests of slingshot balls on many different materials, like ballistic gelatin, coconuts and even a leg of lamb. I film those with a hi speed 1200 fps camera, so the impact is shown in super slow motion.

Now I want to start a blog about my activities.

Hope it works out!

    hi! here's a SNIPER slingshot that i built :-) hope you like it...
    it has a sight like on a pistol (and it actually works).
    the sight works by pivoting on two exis (vertically and horizontaly). the flat piece of metal that sticks out on one side of the slingshot is allways paralel with the vector of the strech of the rubber. you look along the straight adge of that pice of metal and it points to where the projectile will go.
