Bench press 135x10, 185x6, 225x3, 255x3, SlingShot 305x3, 335 (3+) x 8 reps

That was unexpected, especially since the 305x3 with SS felt more like 310x3 without SS.This is also a cycle 8RM with the SS.

Joker sets 345x3, 355x3, 365x2 - all felt pretty good.

Neutral-grip pullups 50 total reps

Standing front press 135x3, 165x1, 190 x 2 singles, 200 x 3 singles

EZ bar wall curl 30 total reps

EZ bar pullover 30 total reps

8 reps at 335 is good stuff. how much do you reckon that you get out of the slingshot, really?

Realistically, I'd say maybe 30-35 pounds on a good day (like the 335x8 day). On average, 20-25.

Also I see a bigger boost in repping strength than when I do reps in the 1-3 range. I.e. my 8RM will be significantly higher with a SS than without, but my 3RM might not be that much higher at all. One major benefit of the SlingShot is that it eliminates a lot of the shoulder pain and discomfort at the bottom, which for me is a bigger help when doing reps.
