Well I suppose so as long as you only need to activate one to launch itOn the trebuchet, can there be more than one triggering mechanism?
Pin angle is highly dependent on several factors, making it impossible to provide a specific value. There are several discussions on the subject on trebuchet sites on the internet. Some sites have online/downloadable simulators where you can observe the effects of changing various parameters. Try doing a search for "trebuchet release pin angle" or "trebuchet simulator".what is the best angle for the release pin?
A sling WILL get you more distance, if you can get it to release right.I would use a cup because I have had bad experiences with the projectile getting caught in the sling and being released too late. My partner and I switched to a cup for States after shooting the projectile with a sling and getting around 3 meters.
I know the sling will get the projectile further but my team and I used a cheap fabric sling and we really have a hard time getting it to release right so we didn't want to take the risk.
