New Hurling Forums





Around the end of November 2013, TheHurl.org was shut down by it's owner for a variety of reasons. We of TeamUrbanSiege would like to thank Ron Toms for all he did in providing those forums to us for as long as he did out of his own pocket. A new forum has started up to fill the void left by the closing. Head on over to The Hurling Forums to discuss anything hurling-related! Catapults, torsion, trebuchets, competition, it will all be discussed there. Need help? Stop on by there and get help from some of the top hurlers in the world! A few of us from Team Urban Siege are on there as well.

Use "common sense" when operating trebuchets and catapults. Even little ones can be dangerous. Do not place anything you are not willing to lose in the plane of the arm rotation (this includes yourself, body parts, car windshields, cameras, etc). These catapults and trebuchets are capable of throwing just as far backwards as forwards, and the use of a backstop of some sort is recommended, though the use of one does not make the region behind it safe.

Also, just because the throw got away safely downrange does not mean the end of the danger. The arm is likely still swinging wildly along with the counterweight, and there is a sling whipping around. One thing many people fail to take into account is this sling; some people put a metal ring on the slip end of the sling and this ring can HURT when whipping around!

Have fun hurling, but please KEEP IT SAFE!!!
