      Do multiplex slingshots break or come apart easy when dropped on a hard surface?

        you can fold the last 1" of your bands to make them smaller or go to two bands the size of your forks !

        Yep, after a long work-week, a "slingshot fix" is exactly what I'm looking for. More precisely, a couple of good 'walk-n-shoots' out in nature.

        Cool! looked up your location. Likely a evergreen of some kind. Hard veins and soft body and a bit resinous. Takes BLO well, quick dips.

        Ain't no blunders. That's just the learning curve. Looking forward to a new shooter.

      A large knot in the middle of a tree fork Is it worth it to continue?
      1. Bone

        Yes....knots look awesome when done. Just make sure its strong or add resin to it if not.

        Sounds if there are some horny toads among those little dingies. Not Dinghy..... they need to choke up on their pfs. Loose lips sink those chickenships. Tuck on chicken lover!
        @AdamvVS you are correct! It really is for the enjoyment of slingshots, even though you have a few turd boats that stir the pot and keep it interesting.

        Stay tuned to my upcoming video. I am trying to decide a title-Happy Henry goes boom, or Average Tucker -Joe blows the ship..
        It has pyrotechnics and a clown figureian “I haven’t name yet” in this upcoming vid.
        Any rate we come to enjoy our fascination with slingshots and what they can do.

        hehe,, most of our sheds are dual-purpose anyway, or universal.. it usually amounts to "tools for slingshooting" shed.
