Has anyone ever made an R10 out of 18mm multiplex? Was it strong enough? Feb 27, 2021 at 11:28 AM

        I say yes ;)
        I only make my own designs but experience tells me that 18mm of plywood is enough for safety and comfort

        I made and enjoy shooting an R10 with 10mm Baltic Birch. It has never flexed.

        Thanks for the replies guys. I am actually cooking up a TTF design of my own. Just trying to figure out how slim the fork "arms" can get.

        @Timhortonscoffeetarget: I went for the regulars. I have never had a problem with them and i didnt know ss were bringing out new ones till i saw the website yesterday. Plus i am considering adding them to a homemade shooter or two and the originals was what i had in mind.
