    3:34 That is one brave cat! LOL<br><br>This is yet another design I would like to own... I cant begin to imagine what your slingshot storage room looks like..... personally I have a big drawer full, and a bunch just hanging around from the ceiling.. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_razz.gif" alt="Razz" longdesc="9">

    Brave? maybe suicidal? <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_razz.gif" alt="Razz" longdesc="9"><br><br>That bow is badass, i never saw a compound bow THAT small.<br><br>There are awesome videos on youtube with people hunting moose with a bow...that requires balls of steel, no doubt.

    The compound you show first was some kind of funny to see how much it bends. But its very powerful!

    i don´t know if it compares to the bigger compound bows you can usually choose which drawweight you want) but i think it´s not a lot (if) weaker, so you can easily hunt deer with it...pretty scary.

    It looks like you can make it more "compound" if you stretch the rubber down into the back of it.

    I think your slingbow gave that liberty a run for its money! That liberty sure is cool though.

    I really like both the slingbow and african goddess designs. I'm going to try the slingbow design first, but I do have a question for you. have you figured out a sighting device for them yet?

    Its not a fair comparison. The slingbow is a simple machine and the compound bows are extremely complex. A more fair comparison would be against say, a 35, 40, and 45 lbs recurve bows. The slingbow is probably closer to one of those in terms of power. In my state it is legal to hunt deer with a bow of 35 lbs or greater with arrows having a 1 inch broadhead(No sling bows allowed unfortunately <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_sad.gif" alt="Sad" longdesc="3"> ). Archery targets wouldn't complain though <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"> . Those compounds are like spacecraft-wow. The slingbow looks like a lot of fun and much more affordable.
