What THWACK! said.  I just posted a slingbow arrow prototype in the Slingbow sub-forum.  Ghost0311/8541 posted his version.  I am working on a short arrow design that can be shot w/ a cheap mechanical archery release.  Since the arrow is short and light, it can be launched w/ very light office rubber bands.


Apologizing in advance for getting all "woo-woo" but have you tried alternative medicine?  Chiropractic, Ayurvedic, Acupuncture, Homeopathic, etc.  Allopathic (Western) medicine really does not have an answer when arthritis gets as bad as you described.  I know two Acupuncturists, one is an archer and the other is an edged weapon guy.  Both keep me going as I begin my dotage.  To quote my Chiropractor "at your age if you are not moving, you're dead." 


Best wishes

Back on topic.  With all due respect to all current sling shooters and manufacturers, unless someone of Fed Bear's caliber emerges, I doubt that slingshots will survive after the current generation of shooters.

Hi Blue Raja,
what kind of problems do you have with the long arrows and achery nocks?

Thanks for your interest. 


When I draw, the arrow shaft raises up off the arrow rest.  I cannot generate sufficient force from the bands to get good arrow flight.

Ghost - great set-up.  Thanks for posting?


Are those carbon shafts?  How do you cut them?


It looks like you have several different grain weights for your field tips - does it make a difference in arrow flight?


How you you keep the wing nuts from sliding up the shaft?


Did you make the slingshot?
