Follow in the footsteps of medieval warriors and become the master of mankind's oldest ranged weapon with our Medieval Catapult. This is not just any toy; it's a piece of history that comes to life for LARPers, reenactors, cosplayers and medieval enthusiasts alike. The medieval slingshot is handcrafted and has an authentic medieval design. It is made of high-quality, vegetable-tanned leather in Germany. Take both ends of the sling in your hands, place your middle finger in the loop and hold the other end firmly between your thumb and index finger. Place a ball in the swing for practice, swing the pendulum until it has reached sufficient speed, then release one end. The ball shoots like a projectile - keep practicing until you get good at it. This sling offers a safe and non-violent way to experience the fun of medieval combat. You can use foam or latex "bricks" for it, or even dry-sprayed tennis balls for extra thrills. No one will accidentally hit a real stone in the head! Be careful never to aim at living creatures, not even for fun! However, consider asking your LARP organizer if you can use this sling as a "weapon", provided you are using soft projectiles such as foam "bricks" or dry-sprayed tennis balls that weigh no more than 50 grams.
Throwing bag dimensions: approximately 15x8 cm, optimized for tennis balls.
Length of sling loops: about 75 cm.
Material: High quality vegetable tanned leather, made in Germany.
