Pretty similar to what I use.  I have a 35lb pull fiberglass recurve bow.
I've used slingshots, but I'm much more accurate with the bow.  I got pretty
good at one time putting an arrow through the top rung of my 40' tower:-)
I know, climbing would have been much easier, but I can't seem to make
myself go more than about 15' up!

Planning to launch a few wires here soon, just trying to figure out how to
configure them to stay away from the darn power lines...
