    Upon exstensive youtube research i have come to find that the "V" seems to me as the best and most powerful slingshot. I love the design of it and want one sooooo bad!

    Thank you for the nice words, but I think the "V" isn't a very good design (no wonder, it was my first).

    While the idea was good, there are serious flaws.

    1. Tubular bands = low performance
    2. Small diameter rollers = high friction
    3. Mechanical abrasion = short band life
    4. Edgy, unergonomic handle = Uncomfortable

    A Moorhammer with the low fork, hammer grip and great ergonomics, set up with flat bands, will shoot waaaayyyy better than the V.
     

  3. I agree the moorhammer is the best design

    @Jorge I am speachless... I-I I just don't know what to say. That's wisdom.
