Slingshot antenna hanger
« on: January 15, 2010, 09:54:16 AM »
Not wanting to spend $90 for cheap slingshot with an even cheaper fishing reel attached (the EZ Hang), I built my own for less than $40.  It works great, easily launching a 1oz weight over a 65 foot tree.  I can remove the fishing reel and still have a fully functional slingshot, or I could even use it to fish with.

Here are the step by step illustrated instructions.  Total time invested was less than an hour.

I could see where this would be especially handy if you had a big fish on the line and thought you might lose him if he put up too much of a fight.

Just pull back on the sling shot and *POW*!

We use my daughers' bow and arrow with a fishing line attached to it.  Yes, it was expensive initially but since we already had it, it was "free".

The link is dead, but I rigged up something similar and WAY less effective. I want to change my slingshot over to a fishing reel design to launch my lifting line for my field expedient 2M and 6M ladder wire j-Poles. Did anyone download this or have an updated link?

So simple, I've got to build one.  It involves duck tape, how can I resist.
