So there is this fancy ESPN video about a Quarterback who claims to be more accurate than an Olympic archer. [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tVoqA-LKGb4[/ame] While the guy IS good, he throws from 20 yards (18 meters) distance. They fail to tell the audience that Olympic archers shoot at that target from 70 meters distance, almost 4 times as far! And they STILL hit the center of the target (the Gold) 50% of the times. Anyway. The video goes on and on how the guy spins that ball and achieves "just the right amount of wobble" to get that kind of accuracy. From my not inconsiderable experience at launching heavy, oddly shaped objects, I say that this is bull dung. From 18 meters distance, it does not matter how you throw the darn thing. You can throw it sideways if you want. All that counts is that you throw it the same way every time. The ball is heavy enough (15 ounces), inertia will make sure that it flies stable, at least over 18 meters. I will make a fixed mounted launcher that throws the ball sideways with no spin at all. I intend to hit a small target ten times in a row from 20 yards as well. Then we'll see.
