Another vote for the pneumatic launcher.  I use the Joplin one. I used to use a slingshot and a nut, but I like the pneumatic launcher much better.

Regarding putting up the EFHW-8010 in a horizontal V configuration...

Based on experience and experimentation (I've put up several of these antennas in a variety of shapes and locations), it works fine...  BUT.  The included angle of the V should be larger than 45 degrees (90 degrees works quite well).  If not, antenna performance falls off a great deal and the SWR will rise.  This is in a agreement with an earlier post on this thread regarding significant field cancellation if the included angle is too small.
