A slingshot is a great survival tool for hunting small game, but a ball bearing or pebble won't be very effective against medium-sized game animals or fish beneath the surface. In those cases, the piercing power of an arrow is much more effective. Fortunately, it's possible to fire arrows from a slingshot, expanding your ability to put food on the table in a survival situation. The new Pocket Hammer Pro Arrow system is capable of firing arrows at speeds up to 170 feet per second, and is said to be capable of taking down medium-sized game.
This product was created by Pocket Shot, the company that produces pocket-sized elastic slingshots which we've written about in the past. In fact, we gave the standard Pocket Hammer our “Top Pick” award after testing it alongside competitors in Issue 29. The new Pocket Hammer Pro Arrow system is designed specifically to fire arrows. It features a 35-pound-draw Pro Arrow pouch, whisker biscuit aiming device, and an optional archery trigger release.
Three standard red arrow pouches are also included, and offer a lighter draw. The Pocket Hammer Pro Arrow system folds to fit in a pocket, and is available in black or mossy oak camo. MSRP is $99; the optional archery release is $15 extra. Check out the demonstration video below, or visit PocketShot.com for more info.
