The easiest way to get your line into the tree, this line launcher works like a giant slingshot to launch lines up to 100 feet. Can be used with a standard throw weight and throw line system, or with the specially designed bullet weights on this page. The big shot is equally popular with arborists, competition climbers, and recreational tree climbers. Being able to put your throw ball and line through the target crotch with precision and speed is definitively worth the investment.
Please be aware that the 8’ pole is oversized, and an additional shipping fee must be added (usually $15-20).
The Big Shot head is mounted onto a sturdy 8’ fiberglass pole. This gives you the optimum height to pull the sling to the correct position before releasing. The Big Shot Line Launcher yields impressive results with a little practice. Replacement parts available. Throw line, throw weights, and optional add-ons sold separately.
Oversized item. Additional shipping required. Excluded from free freight.
The Big Shot kit with 4’ poles couples two 4' poles together to make an 8' pole. This is great if you have limited space to store or transport your Big Shot, and since it is not an oversized item, it is eligible for the free shipping offer.
Using Jameson B-Lite poles for the Big Shot creates a lighter, more rigid line launcher that is easy to break down and pack anywhere.

Replacement sling and pouch for the Big Shot line launcher.
The stainless steel release shackle provides smooth and accurate release every time. The Big Shot release shackle comes with a short length of cord already on it, 3' of Zing-It for creating longer or replacement release cords, and 4' of 6mm accessory cord to tie a prusik and secure the release shackle to the Big Shot pole. This allows you to move the anchor for the release on the pole, adjusting the length of draw on the Big Shot for the desired height.
Anyone who has tried to make a few consecutive shots can tell you that holding the tension on the powerful Big Shot sling while aiming can quickly tire out your shoulders and arms. Using the prusik to hold the tension allows you aim with ease, and release when you've got the shot lined up. Made in France.
This 2’ adapter snaps into a 6’ fiberglass pole to adapt it for use with the Big Shot.
This is a deluxe Zebco reel originally designed for fishing! Pre spooled with 25 pound line, this can hold up to 125 yards of line. The line may not hold up to pulling a climbing line into place, but can be used to get a tag line up on a long shot very quickly. Very handy for tall shots. Must be mounted onto the pole with two hose clamps (not included.)
