Throw Lines
  • The BIG SHOT® makes quick work of getting a working line into position and helps get you get onto the job at hand. Used to launch a throwbag (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 of 8 to 16 ounce weights. 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. For peak performance, don't use the BIG SHOT® with total pole length less than 8 feet. BIG SHOT® with two 4' poles.
