Description

Details

The advent of throwlines has changed the way arborists climb trees. The BIG SHOT® changed the way we use throwlines by giving you a simple, accurate, effective means to hurl your throw weight to new heights.

The BIG SHOT accepts a wide range of projectiles and provides fully variable thrust force to limit over-shooting of low to mid-range targets. It’s simple … if you have a lower target, just don’t pull back as far!

The BIG SHOT also solves one of the most significant difficulties of hand tossing throw weights—vertical targets with narrow approaches. With minimal practice, you’ll be able to hit high targets through a small frame of branches and twigs.

The BIG SHOT is an accurate and lightweight launching system! The launch pouch cuts in-air projectile rotation by 50% over the original BIG SHOT pouch! (This advance is also available as a sling replacement for older models.) If you’re looking to thread the needle through the thickest of canopies or launch throw weights up to 150 vertical feet, reach for the tool arborists around the world call for by name.

Works even better with a trigger and ratchet strap. Review by Jeep Guy
Price
Value
Quality
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)

Great tool for launching my bag and line into my pines! Cost of this, lines, and rope chainsaw was still lower than hiring a tree crew! Wish I could still get up in the trees myself but this did the trick for the limbs less than 75 feet up. I can shoot accurately higher than that but am limited by controlling the rope saw at greater distances. Learning curve for accurately shooting the bag was fast but I'm an ex bowhunter so still have a pretty good eye. (Posted on 9/28/2016)

Just started in the business. I've got a friend that has one and he highly recommended it to me. Wow! I'm glad I took his advice. great tool. Throws the weights like nothing else. I can get a 10oz. weight about 80-90 feet no problem. Definitely the best way to get the climb line set.

The Bigshot was just what i needed to shave time off my Rope Access. In a day i was able to put my line just about anywhere i could think of. If you really want to get your Tie-in-Point higher in the tree without having to readjust it, get a bigshot (Posted on 8/10/2016)
Bigshot ? Genius .... Review by RtCanopy
Quality

The Bigshot is really a genius tool ! This thing is so useful for setting high or tight lines. It makes a long dreaded task a fun and easier one. I have hit some high marks with this thing that I couldn't hit with throwing it. The poles are real nice that comes with it. And the construction of the slingshot is well done. If you want to hit higher, tighter, trickier, crazier crotches then you should definetly get the Bigshot . And it's not only for setting lines, it's multipurposed, just use your mind.

In the Netherlands you need a gun permit to own one. It is an illegal weapon. However very popular.I use a green laser with it. I made a special page on my site dedicated to this great tool: <a href='http://www.boom7.nl/boomverzorging/materiaal-bigshot.html'>BigShot with laser and trigger</a>. Is in Dutch, but the many images will tell the story. (Posted on 11/29/2014)

I liked how the sling works but can't seem to keep my line from tangling up on the way out. It is definitely an accurate way to place your line. (Posted on 9/17/2014)

I should have bought this tool a year ago. I'm generally in pines 100 ft. and I can get my T.I.P. much higher from the get go...saves time from having to reposition my line 10-15x while working in the canopy... (Posted on 4/15/2014)

I like my one 8 foot, 1 piece big shot there is nothing like it. I wish I bought it 30 years ago instead of use my throwing arm or a fishing pole with masonry line for 30 years. Also like the fact the rubber can be replaced when necessary. I also bought the throwing line which works much better than the masonry string. I am still using my own lead ball but the Sherrll throwing weight is much safer especial when you hit a roof with it (Posted on 3/11/2014)

After only 2 practice shots I was pretty much able to place my line wherever I needed it to be. The big shot coupled with the zing it throw line combo. is a huge time saver. Will try heavier throw weight on lower limb placement 16 oz. versus 10 oz. Skeptical at first but not after using it. Awesome tool! (Posted on 2/28/2014)
Pretty cool but not a miracle Review by Steve
Quality

I just got my Big Shot yesterday and took it out to try it this afternoon. Three things: 1. There's definitely a learning curve. Where you put the throwline in relation to the pouch, how far to pull the sling down, how to aim, etc. Also, I noticed that since the throw bag is going higher on a typical shot, a good idea is to use a slightly heavier throw bag than usual to ensure good travel back to the ground.2. It's not the miracle cure all for every tree I was hoping it would be, but it's still pretty great. 3. I should probably buy a much longer throwline. (Posted on 1/25/2014)

The Big Shot arrived and I was anxious to see it work on a 100' white pine. I was able to get the bag over the top on the first try. Very impressive and accurate! It certainly saves time trying to get a line in any tree because I generally take five attempts with the traditional toss method. (Posted on 12/21/2011)

A great choice for those tricky shots. The rubber grip on the bottom of the sling broke on mine after about 200 shots. I also replaced one of the 4ft poles with a 6ft pole, it just helps so you don't have to pull all the way to the ground for those high shots (Posted on 3/6/2011)
