Used to launch a throw weight (with line attached) over a tree’s branch to tow working lines into position. This very simple, oversized slingshot uses commercial-duty fiberglass extension poles butted against the ground to eliminate recoil and maximize launching distance. While hand-throwing straight up is nearly impossible or at best, requires a great deal of practice, the BIG SHOT® allows operators to launch nearly straight up into the tallest canopies, avoiding adjacent brush and limbs. With just a little practice, you’ll be able to toss a weight high or low with near pin point accuracy.
The Big Shot was designed to launch a shot pouch with a light line attached over a tree limb so a friction saver or climbing line can be pulled into place with little practice. A vertical distance of over 100' is easily achieved with great accuracy. The Big Shot head is designed to fit 2 quick connect fiberglass poles for set up in seconds. This tool is a must for every true arborist. It affords the user pinpoint accuracy to get a line over a specific limb high up in a canopy. Also very useful for rescue teams needing to throw a line over a river, across a gorge or between 2 cliffs. Anytime you need to get a line from "here" to "there", the Big Shot can usually answer the call! Big Shot with two 4' fiberglass extension poles.
