Amazingly easy to get wires in trees  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I read the review above, went to the web site which is long and complicated, but there are lots of videos. It took me a good half hour to figure out what I needed to do the job since he does not exactly have a ham related product advertised. I added the well made machined mount to put one of my old Zebco fishing reels on the slingshot. I purchased a couple of 3/8 oz Eagle casting plugs at Dicks and attached it with a fishing swivel. I aimed the slingshot at a tree stump 25' away and on my first shot hit it with the plug. This thing is accurate. I had nothing to loose. I aimed it at the poplar tree designated to hold the OCF antenna and within a minute pulled the tag lines onto the monofilament as the plug went right through the indended branches at least 35' up into the tree. I can't wait to use this thing again. Buy it before it goes away.

Nothing better  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I was searching for a slingshot to make a launcher with, when I came across this item. It's machined from aluminum and stainless steel, made in the USA. Based on other options, it should cost twice as much. Plus, I can hunt and fish with it. Buy it before the price goes up.
