    <div>Hello! I have been making my sling for the around the world trade here and a couple that I made for a contest on another forum. I have a new one to show here. It is a natural I made as an entry to a contest that required the use of shrubbery as opposed to trees. <br>This is the raw fork from a drought killed Red Tipped Photinia. <br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=85&u=17702864" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i77.servimg.com/u/f77/17/70/28/64/100_7214.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br>This how it came out.<br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=86&u=17702864" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i77.servimg.com/u/f77/17/70/28/64/100_7310.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=87&u=17702864" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i77.servimg.com/u/f77/17/70/28/64/100_7311.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br>The bend fits right into the curve of my palm and the forks are at the same angle as my extended fingers. It shoots very well and has almost no slap to speak of. <br>Thanx for looking!</div><div class="clear"></div><div class="signature_div">

    <span class="postbody"><br>Thanx for the kind words. Sir I think you might be confused. If you look at the rotation schedule of thr global trade, you are supposed to be sending to onnod and neckbiter is sending to me. Unless I'm wrong. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_redface.gif" alt="Embarassed" longdesc="10"> Also, mailout starts in May.<br>Thanx again</span>
