I've spent the last two weeks obsessed on the concept of making a slingshot that could do these things: *get rid of the weakpoint where the band meets the frame *create a sight picture is very easy to use *generate a higher velocity *and, most importantly, have an arrow rest that is fixed but falls away as the arrow begins its flight. My first prototype actually works better than I could have hoped. What I wanted to do was use rotating arms to solve most of these issues. I still need to get a Launch in slow motion but from arrow trajectory (which is perfect) it is falling away as the arrow passes. Note is time to improve it and especially the arrow rest. Please help me if you can. Cheers.
