True... but shooting a potato cannon (WBL) is much more fun than launching with a slingshot :)
And making it is half the fun.

I agree with excelite...three people are needed to use slingshots and the are really hrd to aim

Slingshots are about as innacurate as you can get, unless you use a whole barrage at once. Either throw them or shoot them out of a cannon.

at gng I read that they could be good if you had a skilled team to oporate them. they still sound REALLY inacurate and burdensum.

sounds like a bit much to fire a water balloon. There has to be a way to effectively use slingshots.

There is no good need for slingshots, since they are more inaccurate than a WBL, plus they are not as fun :rolleyes:

When I was younger there was a guy who had a slingshot attached to what looked like a practice football goal. You only needed one man to operate the thing and it would hit boats out in the lake he lived by. I asked him about it a few days ago and he said it has 300 yard maximum range and was accurate enough. I still remember the people on the boats... :soakem:

I once used a catapult to launch a Water Balloon pretty accuratly. It went about 150 feet I'm guessing.

I don't like those water baloon launchers... I went to the site a long time ago and they are WAY WAY WAY too RIDICULOUSLY :w00t: complicated to make. I'm not making one.
