Greg [ptreyesgreg] is competing in this one I think.  Not sure what day he's on.

Just checked it out for a minute. It's kind of cool, but kind of goofy too.  I haven't used my slingshot in years.  Nice tool for certain things, but most guys use them to ego lift.  Last time I used it I was just getting back into lifting again after years off.  My bench was barely 250, but I could do 315 with the sling shot.  I feel the same way about geared lifting though.  Different strokes.  I am am a Mark Bell fan though.

Agreed it is goofy to have a competition using slingshots, but I get the marketing angle Mark is promoting.  I appreciate all he's done for the sport over the last bunch of years too. I'm hoping he puts on another meet of the century with top lifters for his new gym.

I use mine almost every bench session but it's silly to have a competition with them.

Just found this area of the forum and this thread.  Here's a very belated thanks for the well wishes of luck fellows. :)
