    I'm left eye dominant, so to hold the slingshot in my left hand I've been closing my left eye. I don't like having an eye closed so will try putting tape over half the lens on my left eye on the glasses. I've actually been shooting ok, but still feels strange.

    Have you tried a tennis elbow brace? It might help aleviate some of the pain.

    1 hour of ice over the tender part, and 20 minutes of heat right after. Do it three times a day. After a week, it will be good to start a strechting routine and exercises. It might take more than a month to make it really better. Let me know if you need any help, mate!

    Thanks for the advice! I've had problems with tendonitis in that elbow for years, seems like it flares up anytime I increase activity with those particular muscles. I've been icing it, heating it, and also been wearing a compression band. Holding the slingshot in left hand doesn't aggravate it, but holding pouch in left hand hurts like hell. So until it heals the swapped hand method seems to work ok.

    Jonm - the compression band I got is for tennis elbow and seems to help a lot. It has a hard plastic part you put on the muscle just above the pain area, then you crank the straps down and velcro them. It does seem to help. I don't know how they work, but it seems like they do.

    I found those when I hurt my elbow playing softball from snapping my arm as I threw a long ball. I think the reason they work well for elbow injuries is that as it is tightened, it helps keep everythhing in place with allowing minimal stress on the muscles & ligaments. I'm glad you found something to help with the pain & movement.
