    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%">

    I don't have a pdf, this is just a modified Moorhammer (the outlines exist here somewhere). I simply widened and extended the fork.
