Using machetes as slingshot ammo

A new challenge arose from the clouds of the youtube community: Can you shoot a machete with a slingshot?

I am not serious if the fellow youtuber was serious or just joking, but I did in anyway!

Now a machete is a very heavy weapon, and strong rubber plus a very long draw was called for. This had to be a slingshot crossbow because the rubber has to be so strong that you can not draw it out with one hand. Also the danger of hitting the hand had to be considered.

The result is actually pretty impressive: The weapon sent the machete all the way up to the hilt into six layers of very thick cardboard. Try to do that by throwing a machete! No way.

The video also shows two very conventional slingshots, both handmade and already presented in some of the forums.

Enjoy!

I love the evil little chuckle you do after you pulled the machete out of the cardboard.

I hope to see this in the machete sequel.

I thought the same thing. I've never heard him chuckle like that before.

It's a side effect of using machetes as ammunition.

Are chainsaws next?
