    Credit for this idea must go to the BadAss slingshot guy...though I had been musing along similar lines.

    It is SO simple and seems to be very effective with just a little practice.

    Anyone could make one in half an hour with a bit of broom handle and a nail.

    The slingbow I'm testing it on has 4 bands a side of TBG (estimated draw of a tad over 50lb) and it works smoothly with this .

    I do have a mechanical release but I think this may be the one I use from now on.

    Thank you. I can't claim the concept as BadAss published before me...though I'm thinking of a much shorter , and possibly curved, 'hook' for the next one

    I'll admit I had to double take the picture as I was watching a movie while reading this.

    lovely carving as usual

    thanks amigo. I have to say that the jury is still out on this. Yesterday, after a little practice, it was working great. Today it seems to have an acute case of premature ejaculation which is a tad hairy with arrows ! I shall practice (very carefully!) some more.

    Easy but effective! I have to make a slingbow soon, I haven't tried yet!

    Where does the battery go Dr. Freud?

    (It may be used with or without the battery to experience a release)

    I think I need to put a splatter screen in front of my laptop, either that or no coffee when reading forums.
