    Wow, you would think they would at least give you a fishing reel mount on the pole for that price. From the description it sounds like they give you a fishing pole, a painters extension pole, and a slingshot frame bent out of $3.50 worth of metal. Probably build a better one for less than $50...<br><br>From their site:<br><br>Invented and patented by SherrillTree in 1998, the BIG SHOT® line launcher provides climbers of many disciplines a unique tool for gaining access to previously difficult to reach anchor points for rope assisted climbing. The BIG SHOT® is now considered a must have accessory by tree care professionals.<br><br>I guess that means you can't put a slingshot on a long stick now, it's patented!
