    Saunders Wrist-Rocket Pro

    I am really getting the itch for a quality wrist rocket. It has been many years since I picked one up, but I know that I just can't live without it this summer. Anyhow, does anyone have experience with the Saunders Wrist-Rocket Pro?

    Oh...you're a slingshot guy ?

    Great fun.
    Killer Slingshots.

    I think they even have a laser equipped Wrist~Rocket these days.

    I've not had a Wrist Rocket in some years now either.

    I used to be able to hit damn near anything with one of those.

    Thumbs up No More Wrist Rocket Folks Here ?

    I think I'll buy one too.
    What da heck....might as well see if my point shooting is still applicable to the ol' slingshot.

    BTW: blacksan...don't check out too soon...we like having you here.
    We'll keep you young here!

    How about one of these human slingshots?

    I got one that looks pretty much like the one in post #2. It sez "Marksman USA" on it. I shoot white marble's in it. They have a "tracer" effect.

    It's primary use is for neighborhood dog control. The secondary is to launch cherry bombs during new years eve or to jump hogs outta a thick bottom. --------

    Yep, they are pretty hard hitting.
    They use that Surgical Tubing for the power cords & really pack a whallop.

    Don't they have an arrow shooting attachment for the Wrist Rocket also?

    Arrows, I can get in enough trouble with ball bearings!

    OK, we need to have a postal match. The one who can hit the pop can the furthest from or standing point wins a clean bore patch, or something equally useful! LOL

    Haven't had one of those tho know them by reputation

    I did tho years back make myself a very enlarged version - a ''U'' yoke at front made from steel bar 3/8" x 1/8" - tops were drilled and tapped to take small plates for fixing the elastic (square section stuff sold for the purpose). This yoke was welded onto a further length of bar - similar size IIRC and bent a bit such that a leather lined aluminum cushion piece could rest well on my forearm.

    Whole thing was about 2 feet long with yoke way out front. Leather pouch was inserted for holding missile. Only limitation was on possible length of draw stoke but hey - that thing lobbed marbles outa sight!!!

    Got mine about 18 months ago (at Wally World of course) to use on cats who come into the yard and try to catch birds on the bird feeder. If you are quick enough and have good enough aim they don't come back for quite a while.

    We had those when we were kids. We, wife and I have the ballon slinger and we can hit people that are about 75 yards away with it. Make the balloons small and hard.

    In my mis-spent youth, every kid knew how to make a slingshot.

    A forked green willow branch, rubber strips cut from an inner tube, a piece of leather about 2" x 2" & some string or baling wire.

    Didn't pay any BATF taxes, either.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.
