I do get a lot of video and photo guys visiting me these days. At some point, they always want to try shooting by themselves...<br><br>However, my preferred slingshots aren't very good for newbies. They are afraid of hitting their hand, and also they cant the frame, hitting the fork. <br><br>Tomorrow, I will have some press people again, and they definetely want to shoot. So I made a "starters" Moorhammer, simply with higher and wider fork. Multiplex it is, as noble wood is not for beginners... one fork hit and a vintage slingshot is ruined. Multiplex can always be repaired. <br><br>Finish is oiled and polished, no problem with sweaty palms. The frame can be trimmed back to a full blown Moorhammer as soon as the owner feels comfortable with that. <br><br>This may be the best "intro" frame I came up with so far!<br><br><br><br><br><div style="margin:auto;text-align:center;width:100%">

Looks good. As usual, good craftsmanship <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"><br>I think multiplex works well with the shape of the Moorhammer; it creates cool patterns <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2">
