Alternatively, you could attach a second string that's longer, that will
catch the ball as it falls.

If
I pull quickly, the lower one breaks.

Do any of you know of any videos (especially high speed videos) of
this?

Also, can you suggest any related demos?



Remember to keep your hand out of the way!  One way to avoid this is
to tie a the center of a wooden rod to the bottom string and push down on
the ends of the rod to break the strings.  I had a serious bruise
from doing this demo once!
