    nice, do they shoot well?? it look like the forks is a bit high, i think you would get a slingshot there is a bit easier to shoot if you lower the fork <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"><br>lower fork=stronger bands and more control <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1">

    They are great for target shooting and light bands that stretch a lot, the angle is perfect for flipping, I would like to see some wood covering the metal in the center , and perhaps lowered forks... <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"> The wood handle themes are awesome <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"> Do you plan to shape them out further, or are these completed?

    Yeah I use the same ones, I had issues with the screwed in one I used , for extra security I suggest using an epoxy combined with screwing it in when you finish them up <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2">
