    Joerg, please, help me!

    I made your TTF shooter with hand brace and leather front. The problem in the hand brace. If i making it loose i can't shoot because slingshot wants to turn, if i making it tight i can shoot but the brace pressing HARD on my hand, it's painful after 10 shots. How did you solved that problem ? I found information that you shot thousands of shots with it:

    And i think it's not possible if you have that problem.

    Several possible reasons. Do you have some pics of the thing?

    People tend to forget that even though you have a hand brace, you still have to hold on to the slingshot as hard as you can. It isn't like on a starship where the forearm takes most of the load.

    Proper rounding, a low fork and an ergonomically shaped pistol grip handle are key.

    I think i almost fixed the problem now. Just moved the handle little bit forward. Thank you for advice. Here is some pictures:

    Hey Vadim, just a question. Are there also regulations in Russia regarding wrist braced slingshots? If not, you should consider a starship design to max out the draw length. With your force, you could do real damage with such a slingshot
