    Hi, you rubber-loving folks :D

    Since i had nothing else to do the last two days, i made another cardboard-weapon.
    This time i somehow copied Jörg´s Slingbow design and this is what came out:

    I like it because it´s accurate, pretty strong and just a lot of fun!
    (and all in all it cost me under 15 euros, and to save some money is never a bad thing :))

    Let me know what you think and maybe you have some suggestions to make it better.

    Thank you, but i have a question. how much stronger is TBG than the black one?
    Since this is the first time i used thera band, i can´t compare it to anything else and i am thinking of ordering the gold one to put it onto this bow.

    Ps: already working on my next project, wrist mounted slingshot ;)

    This is great work!
    I am really impressed that you can take a design, build it from little more than cardboard and tape and have it be so completely effective!
    Good job and please keep building and sharing!

    :eek: Made out of cardboard :eek: !?!?
    Absolutly great job sir. Looks pretty powerful too. What distance was you shootin' from?
    I suggest to put a piece of tube in between to guide the arrow for more accuracy but i don' t know if the friction will affect power?!

    Thank you for the honor ;)

    in the video i was just shooting in my living room, very short distance (6 meters).
    But i already tested it outside at my mothers place, and the arrow was flying pretty straight for ~15 meters.
    And i shot it straight into the air and it took the arrow 5,9 secs to reach the ground again, maybe this helps a little bit.

    Being accurate at 15 metres seems great to me.
    Once again, well done mate!
