      Hope you get some good weather soon to try it out. Anxious to hear how it performs. Band slots look good, been wanting to make something with them to see how they shoot.

      Beautiful work The mix of wood and leather really go well together All those curves on the Mantis really make it stand out If them slots work out going to be the best way to attach bands Going to have to put that on my to do list

      Awesomeness! I believe the original was called the Turkey Mantis It's always been my favourite look. See if it helps with hand slaps.
