    Hello community!

    Few days ago I finished my first slingshot made out of linen micarta; I have always wanted to make one and finally did it.
    Before I purchase my scout I started shooting the Barnett Strike 9 with blue thera tubes and started developing lateral epicondylitis on my right forearm. When I received my scout and started using it and noticing that it wasn't as painful as when shooting with the strike 9, (also has to do with the flat band arrangement). So, make me think of making an ergo slingshot as seen on the slingshot forums; it feels good on my hand and shoots pretty good. The strain on my muscles and tendons of my forearm is greatly diminished.
