Le Lance-Thomas [UPDATE, AUG 6] Some wood, not sure. A swimming cap, works ok. Small stones. Here I am in south-east France on holiday, and it's pouring down. I decided to take this time to post here. I stumbled across a gorgeous fork of strong yet very carve-able wood, and decided to make a slingshot frame out of it. I've only done this once before, and I used a bicycle tube as rubber, which did not shoot very far at all. The fork itself is very basic, as I could only use a Victorinox, and didn't feel like carving it in great detail. I just made it functional and comfortable in my hand. I wanted to go for a different type of rubber this time, and I found a swimming cap at a local supermarket. I guess it's something similar to rubber like theraband. I cut it up in bands and attached it to my frame using an elastic rope. I made a pouch out of a flip-flop that broke on me that day. This is what it looks like: Sadly however, the swimming cap was not very strong and started to tear quickly. I managed to shoot some 50fps footage of the thing in action, and stitch the pics together. Take a look: Here's a gif of it: http://i.imgur.com/UPKryGh.gif It shoots stones from the size of my thumbnail to the size of my thumb. It shoots pretty fast too, I calculated that it exits the pouch at around 50-60 km/h. I don't know if that's really any good, but it's the fastest I've ever shot for sure. I might go look for some proper rubber later today, until then, au revoir.
