Hey, freek, I was just watching another cannonfab vid and you can definitely see him slipping a blank into place at around :35 or so. I guess that answers the question.

I think you're supposed to yell "fore" before you launch a golfball like that.

Yours is scarey, flipping upside down like that.

Here is 85 grains Fg and a steel golf ball.

No flip!

I think part of that was i was pulling to hard because we loaded 90 grains (60 is what i used in the video) later on that night and my cousin pulled the string and he was scared so he wasn't pulling that hard and it didn't flip

I'm going to buy some weaker blanks because the #4s are sending the ball too far by them selves Link
