    I had some of the daisy or crossman slingshots back when<br> I was 12-14 and I miss having something like that. I was looking into <br>production slingshots, and they seem to be lacking in actual vareity, <br>most are cheaply made, and not powerful.<br><br>What would you recommend these days? I live in an<br> apartment and have no large tools to make my own slingshots, but I can <br>put part kits together easily enough, or if you know of a superb <br>production slingshot, I would definitely be interested.<br><br>The only slingshots I found (on amazon) that are mass produced that may be of some use are:<br><br><br>Saunders Double Eagle<br>Saunders Falcon 2<br><br>Think some gold Theraband in these would do the trick, or is there something else I could buy premade that is on par?<br><br>I found out about dakung.com and Jorg's custom<br> designed slingshots, and Jorg's pdf guide to making a custom slingshot <br>from one of their frames, But again, that would be when I have more tools. (believe me It's a high priority) <br><br> Ultimately I am looking for a comfortable to shoot slingshot with a wristbrace preferably for more consistency/comfort (I am<br> an experienced rifle and pistol shooter, I modify them whenever I can to be the most comfortable functional, and cool they can be) that<br> can fire virtually any type of ammunition from 20 BBs at once like a shotgun, to a 3/4<br> inch rock to a paintball, to steel balls. The design of the slingshot needs to be able <br>to accommodate that, and be designed for the maximum power and life of the <br>bands, and the slingshot itself. If there is something I hate, it is products that break a few days, or months after you buy them.<br><br> Thanks guys

    I can recommend the Saunders slingshots, the only flat band mass <br>produced ones on the market. They can be enhanced in many ways, for <br>example by using Bill Herriman's great band sets, and even by adding <br>custom handles. <br><br>The fork can be lowered with a vise, very easy. <br><br><embed pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" src="http://www.youtube.com/v/60CDL0nq984" width="425" height="350" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" quality="high" scale="exactfit"></embed>
