Bud, this is exactly what I did, and it has never worked worth a darn - 
most times, the fishing weight doesn't get even 15 feet from the 
slingshot.  Where on the slingshot did you attach the reel?  Did you use 
a closed or open-face reel?  What weight of line?  I'd sure like to 
rehab mine, if I could figure out what to do.
