Made this slingshot for my daughter - she's 10.
Main objective was high and wide forks with light bands and cool girly looks ;)
.25 inch (6mm) aluminum frame and some spongy rubber and para cord for the handle. Handle is small for adults but just right for her.
And my girl wrapped the handle all by herself.

Snader, THAT is super!

When her friends see that... Oh boy! I think you're gonna have to make some more of those. Stampede time!

I like it very much, ok the color is a bit like it is made from a "Hello Kitty" store, but for a girl in this age, it seems perfect for me. Great job nice present and nice work on the handle. Be careful that you don’t have to build 20 of them, when all her friends see this. :D

I hope that I won't have to make 20 slingshots like that lol.
I'm looking in to PVC slingshots - when u heat and shape it not glued, for quick and easy ss.

Very impressive what you did with that PVC, Snader! I couldn't tell what material I was looking at until you turned it over.

Okay, one down. 19 more to go! :p

Very nice shooters, both of them! :D

But! Be very careful when you heat PVC, and use a face mask/ respirator/ something. I have been PVC-poisoned before. Very uncomfortable!

Haha ! No, I'm not going to make 20 PVC ss either.
Just proving that one can quickly make ss that is cheap and not labor intensive.
I also think PVC ss can be used as practice devices for unexpirience shooters(like myself) and avoiding damage to "nice" slingshots that they have.

I heated it to the point that makes it soft and didnt smell anything as opposed when melting it.
I'm no expert, but well ventilated work area should be sufficient when not melting.
Thanks for concern.
