    I am pretty sure you are using a fitted bed sheet as the back drop? The funny thing about this to me is that I use a fitted sheet also... Or at least I did until it disintegrated <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_razz.gif" alt="Razz" longdesc="9"><br><br>I want to put a large electromagnet in the bottom of mine for collection <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_wink.gif" alt="Wink" longdesc="15"><br><br>Nice video thanks for sharing <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2">

    Seems to work real well!<br><br>I use an old steel tool box as a catchbox. Put in a length of steel rod as a "hanger", and put on about 7 old T-Shirts. After a few weeks of pounding, they are torn to shreds and need replacement.

    I use a bed sheet as well, though mine is not fitted and is stapled to a large wooden frame. They are fairly cheap and easy to replace. Like tiuri, I don't use powerful slingshots (or very heavy ammo), so the sheets last quite a long time. <br><br>tiuri, you mentioned your English in the video. To me your English is very good and very easy to understand. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cool.gif" alt="Cool" longdesc="6">

    seems good if you always wanna shoot there but if you wanna go outside and shoot you should probably try and make something portable you could use the grey foam you have on top of your catcher put a few layers in a box then put a cardboard sheet in front of the foam and there you go portable catchbox <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_razz.gif" alt="Razz" longdesc="9"> check out mine<br><img src="http://i47.servimg.com/u/f47/17/37/23/35/img_0910.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><img src="http://i47.servimg.com/u/f47/17/37/23/35/img_0913.jpg" border="0" alt="">

    Mines a rubbermaid bin with 2 towels folded up and screwd through the top of the box, through the towels and into a strip of wood, I have 2 layers of this. Make this new one 3 days ago and the towels are already starting to fall apart! Also has an extraction system but it's not that great. i just hang the box on my shed. But I hope to make a nice wood box with a stand and a better extraction system.

    Towels are too loosely knit. You can shoot through towels in no time, even with a low powered slingshot (I learned this firsthand, lol). You need something with a tight weave like old t-shirts. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cool.gif" alt="Cool" longdesc="6">
