      My favorite homemade was a Walnut axiom style design, it was actually my second build, i remember it lasted me about 5 shots... :(

      gave it a really nasty fork hit and broke off the top of the fork at the band groove

      Uff, it must have been a very strong blow to break the wood.
      Uff, debió ser un golpe muy fuerte como para romper haber roto el poste.

      Most of my slingshot are home made by me. That's why every one of the ones I keep in my collection is special. But if I had to choose it would be these three.

      No fue todo el poste, solamente toda la ceja del canal de amarre.

      Wasn't the whole fork, just the whole top of the bandgroove

      I don't have a picture of my favourite, it was a hedgerow hunter I made for barkybow, but these 2 were a challenge and was pleased with them, they also went to a good friend on this forum. Sorry the pictures are not great. FB_IMG_1566937766286.jpg 20180811_194803.jpg

      Y Pocket Shooter designes by Dragon Master and shared by Flatband Gary Miller on SSF.

      Mine is about 85% of scale. Hickory, 100 year old cherry, and bamboo.

      1632 GZK ( I think) and a Warrior pouch...6mm or 8mm steels.

      This plywood @Tex-shooter Classic was one of the first few I made, and I always seem to come back to it asking myself why I ever tried anything different. Untitled.jpg

      It's taken several months of wood butchering, but I finally have the beginnings of a shootable homemade slingshot. On the left is a Rambone 2.0. After several false starts, I can actually hit a paper target with it. Still a long ways from finished and I have not started working on the other side. But, it is a great feeling to arrive at a shootable, albeit ugly, slingshot.

      While I am working on my Rambone 2.0 (currently called Ugly-Bone 2.0), I am using its band set on my Trumark FSX 2000, the penultimate wire-framed slingshot. It was also Trumark's last effort. The part where the band attaches rotates and it has a stabilizer. A previous owner removed the fiber-optic system. I wrapped the hollow handle with hockey stick tape and filled it with plumber's putty. I made the flatlands from 4 lengths of SPRI heavy exercise bands. The pouch is thin scrap leather reinforced with duct tape. So, not homemade but home-modified. This rig is capable of great accuracy and a lot of fun to shoot.

      I guess that I am a hammer grip kind of guy.

      @Blue Raja , Hey buddy, that looks good!
      Everyone starts out a butcher. hahahaha...

      I dig those flips, man.

      PS- Is that duct tape!? Man, that is a cool flip...So many mods to be made or not made.

      Thank you!

      My Ugly-Bone 2.0 (actually about 15.0 but why count?) is the progeny of many failed attempts, including trying to make an HTS, a Torque, and a Flatband Ergo. I saved all of my earlier efforts and like to go back to them as my wood butchering skills improve. I am also working on some natties and I am sketching a flip based on your Y Pocket Shooter, which is the coolest flip that I own, bar none.

      My Trumark FSX 2000 would be collectible, but for the fact that I seem to be the only one still interested in Trumarks. Trumark's plant was in Boulder CO. It continued to manufacture there right up to the end, long after all the other major manufacturers moved to offshore plants. Other than the silly fiber-optic system, it is a great slingshot.

      Guilty as charged for making pouches out of duct tape. I have a bunch of thin leather scraps and some pieces of fake leather and fake suede. I make "urban leather" by layering strips of duct tape onto the material. I can adjust the thickness by adding more layers of duct tape. Urban leather pouches are indestructible.

      For posterity Dragon Master design the Y Pocket Shooter...Gary Flatband Miller shared the design.

      I made a few...with a knob instead of a pinkie hole.

      I searched for a Trumark FS 2000 online ...nothing.

      You were kind enough to send me one of your Y Pocket Shooters when I won your prize package. Very well designed and great build. It inspired a lot of my wood butchery!

      Trumark is permanently closed. Its web site is still active, so you can read about its slingshots, but none of the purchase links work:

      http://www.slingshots.com

      Here is a link to the FSX 2000

      http://www.slingshots.com/html/sling-shot-fsx2000.html

      From time to time, a Trumark FSX 2000 is offered for sale on that big auction site. However, none are available right now.

      You can always find a Trumark Bat for sale on the big auction site. Def. one of the strangest slingshots ever built:

      http://www.slingshots.com/html/the-bat-slingshot.html

      We have really strayed off topic here. Maybe you can show some more of your homemade slingshots to get us back on track!
