Is it considered bad to more or less make a copy of a production model. Collection of slingshots is down to one model. The PocketPredator Tarus. Own 3. 3 different weight bands. Just two minor tweaks might make it the "perfect" slingshot for my hand and needs. So have been thinking about glueing up some Baltic Birch plywood and carving a customized to my hand Tarus. Real happy with the stock Tarus. The molded polymer is strong and maintenance free. Enjoy carving things. More of just a need or want to make a slingshot than a need for another slingshot.
