    It looks like you have a very weak bandset or one that is much to strong for you. You can not senetrate a simple paper box with steel balls ??? Have a look at "the slingsoot channel" here on TVclip. Joerg Sprave is a specialist on slingshoots and he teaches every aspect. Even how to make your best bandset

    The way you hold a slingshot is up to you.
    I use a slingshot to practice traditional archery.
    It's the same concept.
    You practice like you would throwing a ball.
    You are learning muscle memory to get accurate and consistant

    Learned this when I was 13-14 because my dad wanted to experience growing up with less technology like he did, making bows and slingshots by hand, I learned how to slingshot in a week aswell, and with more persistence came more experience I was able to hit a lot further than I thought I ever would.
    Handmade slingshots are quite hard to do long distance with but when you do, it's bloody amazing!
    Loved this video! Good work!

    Awesome shooting, Mike! I can't believe you "killed" all those FULL bottles of beer and , OMG, a bottle of Jack Daniels! Brother, that's alcohol abuse! I 've just returned to using a slingshot after almost 60 years and at 71 I'm stoked about it. The slings I was using previously were Daisy wrist rockets but they were heavy and cumbersome. As I watched a video by Zach Fowler, an Alone series winner of $500,000, his hand made slingshot sparked my interest so I ordered an Axiom Champ, lightweight and ergonomically great for my old aged hands. That was yesterday. Today, I've already ordered another sling, spare band, 3/8 inch ammo and pouches for the two slings and ammo. When I can put out a candle while lit...I'll be ready to compete. I hope to see you compete someday, Mike.

    Very methodical way of shooting a catapult, yet you need to try and shoot it by feel with the rubber pulled back beyond your head, plus you gain more power to your projectile. Give it another go and see how you do or watch some video’s on how they shoot catapults.
