De­signed by sur­vival guru Les Stroud, this sling­shot fea­tures a heavy-duty cast body and in­de­pen­dently fold­ing, lock­ing steel yoke arms. The sling­shot body has a built-in com­pass and a hol­low stor­age cav­ity that holds a com­bi­na­tion fire star ter/whis­tle and four heavy ball bearing pro­jec­tiles (in­cluded). Im­pres­sively sturdy, it uses tubu­lar rub­ber bands and a soft leather pouch.

Pre-in­stalled tubu­lar bands were twisted, mak­ing it slow and dif­fi­cult to load.
