That is a very strange looking attachement for a potato gun!  I like it!

Expecting some problems to find the same parts exactly in Europe... So, to be redesigned with available parts, and all the new parts should fit with one another.

Maybe a better way with drones ? The problem is that the drones are designed to carry a camera, not to carry a hook with remote drop out.

I have a similar model and I can HIGHLY recommend them. Very accurate and you can adjust the distance with the amount of air pressure you add. Makes launching lines over trees a simple project.

I was born on the cost and I remember people on the beach would use contraptions like that to fire their bait and rigging in chunks of ice about 200 ish feet off the beach and pull in sharks and the biggest fish I’d ever seen. I approve!
