Please do read my previous post. I consider his data invalid on the loss of energy with time after the bands are stretched.boyntonstu wrote:I would rather walk around with a light weapon that can be instantly drawn with ease and fired with its maximum energy output.
Your fingers are already a moving part. I do not see the significance of using your fingers over a device you've built yourself.boyntonstu wrote:Can you think of a way to build a mechanism that will assist your fingers holding the pouch without any moving parts?
I do not contend that this device is better than a normal slingshot, please try to understand that. I also do not contend that it is easier to hold the pouch back with friction than with friction AND one's arm. The stick is simply replacing the arm, and the fingers aren't under any less stress than a normal slingshot.
