      This is the slingshot I have the best results target shooting. Very plain design in Ti with micarta scales and screw/flat washer/rubber washer band attachment system that works well with tubes or flat bands. I shoot no-tie looped 1680s for 9mm clay balls and it works very well for me. I can honestly say that none of the design features are unique, all borrowed from others. So, to all of those from whom I have borrowed ideas, thanks y'll.

      I've made a few that I quite liked, but this Ying and Yang pair has to be one of my favorites.

      This thread is genius. Like a slingshot gallery of fine works.

      If this was a history glass I would use this section as a hook to real in the learners.

      After looking at these great works of art makes me feel like a newbie ‘I am ‘ my work sucks ! now I guess like you guys are “Making me ‘me step it up a notch ,butt more in the mood of shooting not making don’t think I ll ever get as good as these just don’t want to spend the time getting more selective on my wood choices this year going to try to work on more natural works not glueing things together try some end caps etc... work on getting other peoples builds The ones I make I seem to have no sentimental value to me and I will give them away in a heartbeat but the ones that were given to me I will never give away if they fit my hand so my favorite is not mine lol + you can’t make a flex pfs bonegrip from wood and flex

      My new favorite (home made) is the same style as the last one. Cant seem to shake off the love for that model.
