Antenna launched, but the rubber is not very durable Review by Jim

I had an interest in stringing antenna wires in trees so I can operate my radio in different environments. The first test of this would be my backyard. The Notch Big Shot was attractive because it can launch a throw weight and line much higher than I could do on my own, but also its ability to do so with some precision and stealth.

The instructions were pretty clear, but it took me a few shots to get a "feel" for how hard to pull, aim, release (without the trigger thingie), and what to expect. By my seventh pull, I had launched a beautiful neon orange string arc over a branch some 80' above the ground. Antenna placed!

From a function point of view, this does exactly what I need. With more practice shots, I could be very good at aiming this. The quick release option (or the archery trigger alternative) the other fellow mentioned would be super useful, as it takes a lot of arm strength to pull the tube down.

My big negative on this is the durability. The rubber tube has a moderately large fracture on the right side and may have one more pull before it snaps. A replacement is readily available for $32, but it seems like it should last longer than seven shots. (Posted on 7/16/2017)

Must-have tool for when you just can't throw high enough... I've set lines in 80'+ trees with a 16oz weight many times with it. It's the kind of thing that doesn't get used every single day, but when I need it, it's worth its weight in gold. Use the 8' pole! (Posted on 3/14/2017)

This oversized slingshot is weigh better than throwing a weight by hand, faster too. When time is money it's important to be fast. (Posted on 11/28/2016)

Works even better with a trigger and ratchet strap. Review by Jeep Guy

It is easier to aim and set using a ratchet strap and an archery trigger. The ratchet strap hooks into the archery trigger wrist strap and the Velcro holds fine. The other end of the ratchet strap hooks into the hollow end of the Big Shot shaft. I used heavy duty weed whacker line for a trigger loop on the Big Shot pouch. I just melted the line together instead of knotting it. The trigger is a Tru-Shot Patriot Adult Release, $16.00 on Amazon. Reviews say that the rubber in the sling doesn't work in freezing weather, because it needs to stay warm to work. I suppose you can keep the sling inside your jacket to keep it warm, but haven't tried that. Bottom line, Big Shot got the weight into the tree much easier than throwing. (Posted on 10/18/2016)
