Default New returning to the shooter shots hypothesis

I was watching TobseB79 RTS video, after analysing it I noticed he had the bands set up downwards I think this makes the pouch turn and catch the ball again, see the difference whit the last one, which is set upwards and allows the ball to easily leave the pouch. I also post the link to Tobse's video so you can check it out. https://youtu.be/Y1EkVHXlLE4

Hello Luis,

Interesting post! Personally I don't think it's because of the band orientation. Using many type of setups without such RTS problem. Tobse used fist grip and high power at high release speed. This combination is very demanding and can result to errors. Pouch might be stretched already in an uncontrolled manner. As you see the bands are keeping much momentum as well. Overpowered band may also be a problem. But keep in mind what Tobse does here is not an average slingshot shooting session . Orientation of bands (OTT especially) can affect longevity, aiming sight and POA - POI relation.

Have a nice day,
Tremo

I hade that effect one time when i was shooting from my Tractor. Hurt me pretty bad! I tryed some new ammo (4*8mm steel balls glued together). In my case the ammo never left the Pouch! Also my Sling was overpowerd!

The last RTS I witnessed was one time during a walk whit my dog, my brothers and a friend of them, I had my customized daisy b52 and some marbles and a natural fork that I set up to shoot rocks for the kids, the kid I mentioned before asked to borrow the slingshot to see how far could he trow a stone, so I allowed him a couple of shots, but just before he released the pouch I noticed that he twisted it a lot which is very dangerous with stones, so I shout: wait! Don't shoot. But he didn't care and it happened, luckily he wasn't hit and nobody was behind him.
