The easy way is to upload it to YouTube and link from there. If you become a Supporting Member ($12.00 per year) you can upload to your gallery.

For the Power Rangers it would be fascinating to know the details of how each of these terrific shots was achieved in terms of the type and size of band/tube used and the draw length. Does the info exist anywhere already ?

Power Rangers members must submit a video and list their equipment. It is all in the Power Rangers Topic.

Am I allowed to enter this competition?  I know the Pocket Shot is not exactly a "slingshot" but pound for pound I'd like to go toe to toe with somebody elses best most powerful version and see how it holds up.

 

Anyone got a tiny slingshot 2.3 inches or smaller that is super powerful please send me a video or link.

 

thanks

 

(maybe I should start a new thread for this)

All you need is a chronograph and a video camera. The size of the frame does not really matter.

If you're going for speed, load it to Speed Freaks. For power entries use Power Rangers. See the first post in this thread.

I'm wondering what bands would give a man 300+ fps with say 32cal lead. With 3/4 butterfly or less. :stupidcomp:

Well, you can begin by looking to see what others have used ... here for example:

http://slingshotforu...s-ssf-300-club/

Of course there is no single answer to your question. The only "band calculator" I know of is here:

http://www.slingshot.../band_calc.html

But it does not really specify speed, and it is only for Theraband Gold.
