    <div>Thanks for the positive feedback guys!<br><br>CEZ, I'm unsure how many fps I would get with these chunky stones. I haven't heard of anyone measuring them. I have heard of people measuring the impact in joules, however, it would be very difficult to get a stone or lead bullet through a chrony.<br><br>Is there any other ways to measure fps very easily?</div><div class="clear"></div><div class="signature_div">

    you can measure the time between release and hit, measure the distance, write it like feet per sec. and voilla

    Yes, you can try an audio chrony, there is no expensive equipment to destroy. <br>There's even an app for android phones, called Chrono connect that will measure everything for you. <br>I'm really curious what this kind of sling can do, it supposedly killed a Goliath!
     
  11. Nice shot man! I need to get my sling back from my buddy and start practicing again, I doubt I could make that shot from half that distance anymore. Fine slinging sir!

    <div>I'll give it a shot once I have the right conditions! CEZ, I have a video coming up which will show you the impact of regular stones on metal. That should give you some answers to your curiosity.<br><br>Thanks Mikehunt! Might as well just make another sling!</div><div class="clear"></div><div class="signature_div">

    Cool, thanks! The coconut test itself was pretty self-explanatory, I am totally a believer! But destruction and impact studies vids are always great to watch so keep em going!
