    Looks very nice! Maybe the forks are a bit high for hammergrip-shooting?

    <strong>Thanks</strong><strong> you guys for all the nice comments, which encouraged me to do more<br>and more and thinking up new things.</strong> Especially the compliment by Joerg fills me with pride. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_bounce.gif" alt="bounce" longdesc="27"><br><br><br><br><table width="90%" cellspacing="1" cellpadding="0" border="0" align="center">

    <span class="postbody"><br><br><br><br>Even if it looks like, but it's also not a problem to use strong bands. The grip is so comfortable that holding the slingshot<br>even full pull is very easy. As I am a beginner so far, it is better this way)<br>After I shot a little, the constant of shooting is very good, it is much better than<br>the already very good HULK with rotating fork.<br>But you've got me on a good idea, next time I will build a much<br>flatter fork. It just starts to work in my head... <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_lol.gif" alt="Laughing" longdesc="7"></span>

    The "W" is a design I don`t like <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_mad.gif" alt="Mad" longdesc="8"><br><br>But you are right, with these rods it would be easy to build.<br><br>I will bend them (quarter round) and weld them to a handle with a stainless steel core.<br>Then wood or fimo handles.
