    I hope no one is tired of seeing my KPX frames. This one is a little different and I've named the design the KliP-X. The forks are a little taller to help accommodate the clips, the fork gap is more of a semicircle than the original KPX and the handle is slightly modified for my grip.
    This was my first attempt at building a frame with clips. I don't know if I made it more complicated than it needs to be but they seem to work well. Here are some build pics:

    I had a nice satin finish and then decided to try some Alumi-Black on the frame. That was a big mistake and it just made a blotchy mess of the whole thing. I sanded the Alumi-Black off but the finish still shows stains and could be a lot better. Maybe I'll redo it in the future...probably not. :)

    Here's a closer look at the clip design.

      I like that a lot. Nice solid clips and took the time to carve it out properly. Sweet slingshot machine. :tu::tu::tu::tu::tu::tu:

      Thanks! I enjoy your patterns a lot. :)
      This one is a great shooter and I won't be worried about destroying it with frame hits.

      Looks ergonomic. Once I tried my hand at an offset handle I realized why some people like them. Great job! Nice looking clip set up as well!

      Thank you! The best part is that I seem to shoot it very well. I had a hard time with consistency with my fat KPX :rolleyes:. This one is a real nice shooter. :)
