The GloveShot Slingshot Can Handle Heavy Materials

Monti Gear's 'GloveShot Slingshot' is a highly durable catapult. The handheld device can propel material weighing up to 35 lbs, a considerable number given the juvenile nature of the product. The company has revamped the old school framework, making it appropriate for older crowds in search of entertainment.

The design of the GloveShot Slingshot deliberately aims to get around legal prohibitions. While slingshots tied to the forearm are banned in certain countries and states, binding tethered along the back of the hand has yet to be outlawed.

The positioning of the device means that when one fires the GloveShot, his/her arm has to extend at a 90 degree angle, aligning wrists and elbows with shoulders. This is the same stance assumed by bow and arrow shooters, facilitating accuracy and speed.
