    Hey guys,

    Here is a review of my homemade slingbow. I made the whole set up by eye and in hindsight I should have measured everything up perfectly. It has a few problems detailed in the video but they can be fixed in the next version of the bow.

    However, it still works and is incredibly fun to play around with!

    Awesome, you should make a tutorial video for the next bow you make

    Thanks Kinetic! I was thinking about making a tutorial for this one but there's a few too many problems to weed out before I can do that. I'll probably make a slingbow similar to CaptainBacon's design next.

    UPDATE: Shooting the bow with three fingers under the nock fixes the problems of power displacement. It now shoots much straighter than in this video!

    For a first attempt that bow is awesome. I am impressed. I made one that had more problems than that but it is still a functional decent bow my next one will be much better like yours
