“Best slingshot ever”

Written on: 06/04/2013 by Wannu121 (1 review written)

My barnett blackwidow lasted for a very long time I bought it with the yellow bands on and I used it for a year with no ripps I shot about 600 shot and it did not rip now I bought the red bands. I like the grip of the handle a lot but the only thing I did not like in this slingshot that it has very narrow forks unlike trumark which have very wide forks but overall i loved this slingshot… Read Full Review

“Good ... But ...”

Written on: 04/04/2013 by MTJLT (1 review written)

Do not try the Black Widow with light, small ammo; shots go wild. Accuracy is fair to good with 12mm/.5" steel balls. Standard yellow bands are medium-hard pull, mainly because the pouch isn't sufficiently textured for a good grip. Try the fist-grip shown on YouTube for a much better pull. I would much prefer tapered bands such as Marksman provides, but with the larger pouch of the Barnett. I would also like to see a better style of band-to-pouch attachment, as the existing type allows the… Read Full Review

“A great catapult!”

Written on: 29/07/2012 by Jeff.D.Steele (2 reviews written)

I've been taking a Black Widow with me when I going fishing for the past 30 years and it hasn't failed me yet. It may not be the most pricey catapult, but it is certainly amongst the best. Durable, good range, high level of accuracy - what more could you ask for?… Read Full Review

“Absolutely Great!”

Written on: 27/05/2012

Brilliant power, and with a little practice, accuracy. This is supposed to be a budget gadget, but I would say it surpasses it more expensive counterparts, the cobra and diablo. the quality is fantastic and although I've been using it for a month now, the bands are barely worn.It even comes with a foldable arm brace and ammunition. Overall 10/10!… Read Full Review

Mate, the red bands are notorious for breaking. the natural 'Gum' coloured bands with a WHITE pouch last for years. I have a lot of experience with catties.

regarding the guy who thinks I am a brand hater or from the competition I think if he used the band himself or read the many,many complaint re Barnett and there poor bands he would change his mind .I doubt if he has ever owned or used a catapult and just took two minutes away from his full time hobby of dribbling and licking windows .Just try and say red backwards little man .

first i would like to say what a great piece of equipment...ive had this for approxamatly 7 months now and it has really done me justice it the arm rest really makes it possible to pull the bands far back and you can get really good power,i went hunting with this i didnt get anything not because of the slingshot but because i didnt see anything and i went in 5ft deep water swimming in a stream for about 1 hour and then went in thick mud when i got home i swilled it off and it wash fine all… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/01/2011 by Hedgerowe (4 reviews written)

This catapult is a few year old, and still good as new. it is a good price and value for money, I have used this a lot for hunting rats, and kill rate is very good. It is very robust with good build quality, the rubber is of good quality. the plastic grip could be better,but for the price it can be forgiven. Looks good and feels strong, with the wrist strap for support, for pulling the rubber back for power… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/06/2010 by Paul Delvino (1 review written)

A very well made and quality piece of kit for both pest control and target activities. Price was very fair when considering the parts involved and design/manufacture. I found the instructions clear and concise, I mean, how much instruction do you need for putting a band on a rod? I was so impressed with this product that I bought an extra one for practice (Rats) and different locations for target shooting. I highly recommend it to any pult enthusiast!… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/10/2009 by Tomwoc (1 review written)

An amazing slingshot. The best I've ever had or made. The bands are very powerful (but not impossible to stretch) It's got a perfect handle with yellow grips. With about a week practice you can hit a can from 10m away! Someone said it can reach 200 fps! 10/10 only £7.50 one of the greatest purchase I've ever made. :)… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/09/2009

I first owned a Barnett Black Widow catapult back in the mid 80's and had lots of fun with it until i broke a window (accidentally) and my mum confiscated it :( but for the year or so i had it, it was in use every weekend and pretty much daily in the school holidays and was pretty robust (i was 15 and caring for my toys was not a priority).

A couple of weeks ago while searching for spares for my RC helicopter i found a site selling black widow's well i just had to buy one!
