    For big game fishing they use heavy chairs to bring more power to the fibre.
    Could we use this for more powerful both handed slingshooting?

    Couple of points that I see off the top.

    A tracking left-right. Fighting chairs on boats have swivel bases. You'd need something similar.

    B Elevation control This one is actually quite a bit easier. One way would be to mount your sling on a sort of ball joint that would give you the movement required while holding the sling in position for cocking.

    I'm sure someone can figure out how to do it with something like a wheelchair.

    Something to be said for relaxing in the yard, reading a book and taking pot shots at varmints as the wander by. :)
