    Hi guys, <br>I've redisigned my hammergrip shooter slightly (<a href="http://theslingshotforum.forumotion.com/t2824-my-hammergrip-slingshot-with-magazine" class="postlink">http://theslingshotforum.forumotion.com/t2824-my-hammergrip-slingshot-with-magazine</a>) and made it with 8 layers of plastic and carbon fibre inlays. I am just thinking about TB black and a white pouch <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_wink.gif" alt="Wink" longdesc="15">. Hope you like it.<br><br><img src="http://i69.servimg.com/u/f69/18/10/92/33/20130220.jpg" border="0" alt="">

    Well done and congratulations on the well deserved comments on this forum and the Slingshotforum! As Homemade stated, "..a new era in the slingshotgalaxy begun....." It looks like the plastic is a type of PVC plastic sheeting? How did you polish and glue it? If these sheetings can be pieced together like multiplex, I envision future unique, multicolored designs! Once again, congratulations and thank you for pointing us towards a new dimension in our beloved hobby!

    Thank you for all of your kind comments,<br><br>@CarlosR: the plastic sheets are 3 mm thick and available in different colors in German DIY markets. The material is called Gutta Gliss Hobbycolor. The best way to glue it is with CA, but you have only one chance to fit the parts together in the right position <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_wink.gif" alt="Wink" longdesc="15">. You can grind it like wood but it has pores. I've closed the surface with 10 layers of clear coat (sprayed) with several grindings in between and then I've polished it.

    <strong>THIS IS SPORTY! </strong>Oh yeah, you gotta have <u><strong>black bands</strong></u> for this. I've seen <u>bright red</u> bands too. Might be too much eye candy. Maybe black bands and a <u><font color="red"><strong>red pouch</strong></font></u>???<br><br>I wanna hop in a vroom zoom around a race-car track with it. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cool.gif" alt="Cool" longdesc="6">

    It is awesome with the TBB on it. The magazine seems to work very well, great job and super slingshot.
