    Hey guys! This is my first post here on the forums. I have been 'silently stalking' for a few months now and enjoying the excellent work that you all do. I started making slingshots during Louisiana's stay at home order this past spring and having a blast.

    This is the third PFS frame that I have built, and one that I drew out myself using some design elements from other PFS frames that I like. It reminds me of a red fox with a bushy tail so my wife calls it Foxy. The target side is red and brown canvas and linen micarta. The shooter side is layered brown, jade, and black G10. The palm swell is stabilized poplar burl.

    Thanks! That means a lot. I still have a lot to learn, but I'm having fun doing it.

    Welcome!
    Foxy is a good looker, for sure.
    There's a lot of sophistication in the design and build, too!
    I love the tiny waist and the burl is awesome!
    Excellent work!

    Thank you so much! I like a tiny waist on a PFS and I'm curious how small I can make it and not compromise the structural integrity. :nailbite:

    Thanks! I'm partial to natural tone colors. I like how the jade G10 darkens when its beside a darker color but lightens with others.
