Slingshot became popular in 1970s and 1980s. The Slingshot is a kind of cold weapon or game tool. The Slingshot is generally composed of bow frame, rubber band and leather pocket. It is generally made of branches of trees in the shape of “Ya”. The upper two ends of the elastic band are tied with rubber band, and the middle part of the elastic band is tied with a piece of leather wrapping the projectile.
The power of the Slingshot depends on the tension of the rubber band and the rebound speed of the rubber band. The greater the tension of the rubber band is, the heavier the projectile can be matched. The faster the rebound speed of the rubber band is, the greater the initial speed of the projectile can be provided. The heavier the projectile is and the higher the initial speed is, the greater the power will be. According to the launching mechanism, the Slingshot can be divided into two types: bow plate Slingshot and rubber band Slingshot. The arched Slingshot has the most primitive arched Slingshot and Slingshot crossbow.
