Needs work – Metal Slingshot Launcher Reviews

posted by SamQu on 12/25/2010 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Cheap and has a solid chromed steel frame that runs though it's whole length. The wooden handle is well braced to the steel frame under it.
Cons:
The twin ellastics use a creative way of restraining to the body in that they have a singular steel ball inside each tube that jams in there. Problem is when I would put any sort of force on the pouch the bearings would pull out. I fixed this by putting some glue inside to hold the bearings in. Also the slings are not very stiff and hence don't prodide much force.
Other:
Bottomline:
Works well as a neat toy but due to the low tension the slings provide it's more of a novelty than anything you could use to get rid of pest birds as an example. Having to make changes to the device before being useable is a bit dissapointing
