Let us know how you get on with the new pole, they do say you need the 8ft to get the max height. I guess it could be one of those tools that’s not used much but worth having anyway.

Get the trigger release, can load up more and then release once aimed.
Saw someone use a small pulley and some cord to the pouch to add mechanical advantage when pulling it back, my homemade big shot will go far higher than i can throw

Yes i have seen that device where you effectively use a pulley to gear down effort and then capture but i do not really think i will bother as 60 ft is probably enough .........would be interested to know how far others get on a straight pull ...
