    I was looking through slingshots on e-bay and saw one that reminded me of Jorgs video shooting thingies, took me a few seconds to figure out what was different about this slingshot <a href="http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/KING-KONG-Padauk-Slingshot-Outdoor-Hunting-Catapult-Pocket-Sling-Shot-Art-Work-/130603811406?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item1e6898024e" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/KING-KONG-Padauk-Slingshot-Outdoor-Hunting-Catapult-Pocket-Sling-Shot-Art-Work-/130603811406?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item1e6898024e</a> <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_redface.gif" alt="Embarassed" longdesc="10"><br><br>certainly is different.

    I also viewed another that looked like a torture device from the film saw <a href="http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ToKing-Powerful-Slingshot-Accelerate-Spring-Actuator-Hunting-Wrist-Catapult-/130700305529?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item1e6e586479" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ToKing-Powerful-Slingshot-Accelerate-Spring-Actuator-Hunting-Wrist-Catapult-/130700305529?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item1e6e586479</a><br><br>Not sure if this was built for the terminator but certainly doesn't look like you would want to put your hand inside.

    I prefer to put my hand in the second one than on the first one. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_wink.gif" alt="Wink" longdesc="15">

    [email protected] link.<br>thanks for sharing.<br>looks highly uncomfortable to use and complicated to adjust...it is bulky as hell, the springs are way to strong for the used rubber and the price is a joke...overall looks like a toy for children that like to play rambo...i bet a nice hammerframe with double TBG delivers way more power than that complicated pile of crap...made my day anyway <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1">

    Yeah the price is insane, I think they are just trying to fool people that have too much money and know very little about slingshots.<br><br>The first one I have to assume is for ladies <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1">

    lol tyson, nice one...650....you can get a good compound bow for that price haha.<br><br>sometimes i´m under the impression that people who sell something in auctions have the same stuff online with a different account for "direct buy" and a totally crazy price...so that someone who wins that auction for half the price is happy...but still got fooled lol.

    <span class="postbody"><br><br>Yeah, that's just crazy. I've seen those at aliexpress for anything from $85 to $155 (both still too high for what they are, as far as I'm concerned). I might pay $50-60 for something like that just to see how it shot, but for the price they're asking on ebay it better be made of solid gold. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_lol.gif" alt="Laughing" longdesc="7"></span>
