I made a set like that last spring and really liked them. This weekend, cleaning the garage, they had fallen apart. I found the O rings in pieces. My guess is they overheated in the summer and broke. Be careful where you store them.

I'm going to re-build them using castration rings.

You know, I bet a lot of people don't get that joke!

Actually, here's another Youtube video where the guy recommends castrating rings.

you can buy 8 foot stakes at lowes and make your own for whatever height you need, just cut them to fit.

I bet a Bull would know exactly what you're talking about! He would probably be more than willing to give up his rings for you too! lol

I made a couple from this plan and it was very quick, easy, and cheap. I bougfht the parts at a Tractor Supply Company store. The sticks were $1.09 each and the castrating rings came in a bag of 100 for $2.59. It took about 5 minutes to make the pair.

Good video. I wish I had seen it before I spent $100 on the 3 legged devil shooting sticks that weigh about 4 times as much.
