    Joerg's snowball shooting video got me inspired so I modified the JG940 and created the JG IceBomb CTS (carbon tube slingshot)... we finally got some snow here in Seattle and it was fun as hell... check out the video below... I actually had to use a leather pouch as the denim one ripped... luckily I didn't get a snapback...

    That looks like a blast. Thanks for putting this up.

    Plenty of power, even on a cold night--sweet shooter!:cool:

    Gotta be at least as fast as a pro baseball pitcher. Like 75mph?

    Just going by how hard it hit that sign.

    That would hurt, yeah!

    buckshot500, I agree... I was thinking about 75mph which is prob a bit faster than I can throw a fastball... good eye! Coach must have yelled that at you as you assessed the pitch. ;) I certainly feel like a bona fide redneck when shooting it. It would not feel good taking one of those in the mouth. I was told that if I put a bottle opener on the grip my "redneck power" will triple. :D

    Those are some really hard impacts. Good job on that snowball shooter.

    I'm not a pitcher, but my friend was. They clocked his pitch with a radar gun at 72MPH at the Jersey shore in 1981.

    Not someone to start a snowball fight with!

    Not sure if you can see it, but there is a bottle opener on my jeep in my avatar. It does triple the redneck mojo. Edit; it's just out of view in the lower lefthand corner.

    That is cool. I really like this Idea. May I replicate it?

    Absolutely! I would be honored! And of course you must disclose all your clever innovations on the design to everyone as well, make awesome slingshot destruction videos, and so on...! :)

    People bow down to that kind of power... be responsible with it, oh mighty redneck.
