    Thanks guys for the nice comments, I'm really pleased with this one, of all the slingshots I've made this is the one I'm probably most likely to keep for myself, although I could be tempted in the future for the right trade?????

    Am I the only builder who doesn't keep there own work? I like to collect other people's work and if I don't have to pay it's even better and the way I look at it I could always make another.

    Thanks for watching and taking the time to comment.

    Cheers pal. To be fair with a conus I think it's all about the wood selection, so I think you deserve most of the credit for sending me the right piece I just shaped it. I think you need to build a conus when you get the hang of pfs.

    Cheers pal that's nice of you to say :tu:
    I'm definitely getting better at PFS and I'm now shooting 8mm steel with just a little bit of trepidation but enjoying the learning curve. I haven't got to full butterfly yet but I'm in the process:nailbite::nailbite::nailbite::nailbite::nailbite: hahaha

    I have a conus on my list of things to do so hopefully I will be able to make something that does Arturos design justice :tu:
    You have his design down perfectly bud. I really like the way that Yew turned out :tu::tu:. Great job ;)

    I'm sure you will more than do it justice, can't wait to see it I really enjoy making them. I don't shoot full butterfly, I just can't get accurate with it but I am shooting semi butterfly or with a floating anchor how ever you want to say it with good accuracy.

    This is probably going to be the last one I build for a short while I'm going full out shooting for the next month or so.

    Thanks Rob. After making that one for you I just had to make one for myself. Unless someone talks me out of it but I will try to resist.

    you're not alone Muz, I don't really have much of my own work, I almost gave away McGherkin., but I'm keeping it for now, people ask to see my work and all can show them is a torque half the time..
