Catapult King

We visit Joerg Sprave, top slingshot designer, King of the Catapults and all-round brilliant Bavarian at his home in Germany. He shows off some of his most outlandish slingshot designs (the Gatling, the saw-blade thrower) and tells us how he came to be the PR man for the new Hansel & Gretel film (you have to hear him shout ‘WITCH!’). He shows off slingshot technique and then he pimps Charlie’s old Milbro, giving it a new lease of live as a 21st-century cattie.
