    OK, after 16 days my hand is healed enough for some light slingshot making. Boy, have I missed my workshop!<br><br>I used some moor oak leftovers and some plywood, made a new variation on the Hammerhead. Slightly smaller fork tips (18mm dia, so they can be made from the single multiplex board), a slightly thicker "throat" so the pressure on the webbing between index finger and thumb is distributed better, and a "butt tail" at the rear lower end. <br><br>It feels really good in the hand, but I need to do some shooting to streamline it. Too bad there is so little daylight now, it is dark when I come home from work.<br><br><br><div style="margin:auto;text-align:center;width:100%">

    Awesome! I like this one better than the original design. Will you send this to Hogans casting after testing?

    Very attractive. I like the dark wood and stripes.

    Have you tested it yet? Would you say it's more comfortable and stable that the hammerhead?

    I have done just a few stretch tests, as it is dark when I go to work and dark again when I come home...<br><br>I think the throat is a tiny bit wider, which feels better. The butt spoiler does not make a difference, as you don't even touch it in drawn out condition.

    That makes sense, you have also changed the tips, does that affect anything? Do you have to use narrower bands for that?

    No, the tips still have an 18mm dia... so I can attach bands that are 56 mm wide without having the ends touch each other. My bands are rarely wider than 30 mm, or else I will use layers.

    i have the Hammerhead currently here for some tests, its a very good shooter, only with strong bands a thicker throat more comfortable maybe.
