we got the antenna launcher together and tested it out without tethering the ball with a string... maybe we should have.
Lets just say it works. ..lol

Here are a couple vids.

My buddy chris has caught 100MPH slap shots in hockey before and he says the ball was going way over 100MPH.

I like it!!! I can think of several things that could be usefull for.

The one that comes to mind first is nailing that damn Mockingbird that lives in a tree outside my window. That bitch stays up all night chirpping. I swear that bird hasn't slept going on 4 months now.
