OK, we all know that front heavy bolts need no fletching for a straight flight.

What if...





This January. On The Slingshot Channel. Stay tuned.

I think the issue you're going to run into is range and the fact that a normal saw doesn't spin on it's own, only slowly idles. If you try it I know I'll watch though, this is just one of those train wreck sounding ideas you can't look away from.

Think the first issue with his idea as illustrated is going to be finding enough extension cords.

Just be sure the launch mechanism applies the motive force directly behind the weight of the head at launch. If you push from the far end, the initial launch guidance and flight path will be terrible.

Just my opinion.

No need, the saw is battery powered. 18 Volts. Battery pack is attached right behind the saw.

Well, don't forget that the pole is guided by a tightly fitting barrel. Until the pole leaves the muzzle, there can be no deviation. This worked really well for the Assegai thrower!

Beat me to it. Good job.

Didn't see the Assegai. I need to get out more.

Just my opinion.

I thought I would be funny and say that well then you would not have the element of surprise becasue of it now being so noisy. But somebody would not get the joke and tell me so. So I just stated it like that. But it still needs a laser on it and maybe a forward grip. OH and paint it camo.

And a 15 minute meeting to pitch the idea as a full-length feature film to M Night Shyamalan.
