TRUMARK® Fiber-optic Sights- Rotating Prongs
Handle Holds the Steel Ball Ammo
No. S9FO:TRUMARK® slingshot features Fiber-Optic Sights attached to Rotating prongs. When the slingshot is fired, the prongs and the sights rotate 180 degrees to allow the powerbands to pass through the fork. The bands never hit the sights. The unique fiber-optic dot sensors capture light rays which cause the red & green dot sights to GLOW for better aiming, and shooting accuracy.
The clear plastic-handle slides up the U-shaped aluminum frame, and releases SA30 ammo from a capless hole in the bottom. When the handle is pushed down, the hole becomes "self-sealing" and traps ammo in the handle. • The S9FO slingshot does not have a wrist-brace, and will fit in a back pack or pocket. It has a moderate pull and is fun to shoot! The S9FO includes 30 cnt. SA30 5/16" steel-ball "starter ammo" in the handle chamber. Powered by matched-pull latex powerbands with split-leather pouch. 175 Yd. Range!
A slingshot, shanghai, flip, bean shooter, or wrist rocket is a small hand-powered projectile weapon. The classic form of slingshot consists of a Y-shaped frame held in the off hand, with two rubber strips attached to the uprights. The other ends of the strips lead back to a pocket which holds the projectile. The pocket is grasped by the dominant hand and drawn back to the desired extent to provide power for the projectile.
The middle 1950s saw two major innovations in slingshot manufacture, typified by the Wrist-Rocket Company of Columbus, Nebraska, later renamed Trumark. The Wrist-Rocket was made from bent steel rods that formed not only the handle and fork, but also a brace that extended backwards over the wrist, and provided support on the forearm to counter the torque of the bands. The Wrist-Rocket also used rubber tubing rather than flat bands, which was attached to the backwards-facing fork ends by sliding over the tips of the forks, where it was held by friction
