On one firing the rope (rated 60-100kg) broke with a 3kg projectile, also showing how much force is imparted on the missile!
They really were an upgrade from the catapult, weren't they?

So based on a tensile strength of 100kg with a 3kg projectile, gives an approximate 33N moment. What sort of range do you get? Back of the envelope maths with the ball being released at around 2m altitude puts it a bit over 55m.
