    Attached are the results of speed tests of a variety of elastics, using a number of different weights of ammo. A big Thank You to @flicks for conducting this exhaustive testing under carefully controlled conditions over the past several months. The goal was to compare the performance of the different elastics. The chrony broke before all of the planned tests were completed, but it is hoped that the results will be interesting and useful to the slingshot community.
