    I noticed in some videos that some Carbon fiber Slingshots were made. I was wondering does anyone know what thickness of carbon fiber and what kind of performance they have?

    The polymer that is made out of is a type of plastic. It has nothing to do with carbon fiber. Carbon fiber is pretty strong so it probably wouldn't have to be very thick to be strong enough, but to me if a slingshot is too thin it isn't comfortable to shoot.
