Sling launch method
In the early days of dlg (two years ago) I remember hearing of someone in europe who was using a sling arrangement to extend the diameter of the launch circle. This sling somehow hooked onto the launch peg and could be released at the end of the launch circle. As I recall, the device was outlawed in europeon competition, so it's development was not pursued.
This might be a good way to increase the launch heights of the smaller SAL's like the Bug, Bobolink, or Gambler.
Anyone else hear of this?
