Seemed to me like he was really ripping on Mike Womack and the Bench Daddy.

He should have patented the device.

Competition happens. That's all I have to say. Being the first to do something neither guarantees it's the best, nor that you will be successful. I like Mark but was not a fan of this video.

I am not going to comment on copying this or that, but I can tell you Mike Womack is a great guy.

Every major shirt manufacturer has a slingshot style device. Guess he didn't patent it.

I'm sorry but Chris Taylor made me a similar device a while before the slingshot came out. Just saying.

From what I've heard, the slingshot did have a patent. If you change the item by only 10% you can make it. Both the Titan RAM and Womack's Bench Daddy are different from the slingshot. In my opinion, both are improvements of the Slingshot. Bell is just bitter because they are making money too. To bad.

Time for me to make the reverse slingshot. Wear it across your back to make lockout harder!
