    Since everyone of the seeing seems to be preparing for the upcoming zombie apocalipse already, I decided, I'd have to stock up my arsenal as well.
    So this is my first dedicated zombie killer incl. glass breaker (skll crsher :D ) spike! I'm working on some flechette blade darts as well :cool:

    That Spike looks mean :cool:
    Hrawk uses that same fork for his mbbs shooters with good results.
    I bet it´s a good shooter.

    Nice fork. Wouldn't the end of a big nail work better than something threaded? Less likely to get stuck and all that ;)

    I really liked the idea of incorporating an impact point to the base of a slingshot handle.

    That will defiantly work for a zombie apocalypse! I like the spike idea on it and it makes it look deadlier!

    Nice!

    For a reliable skull crushing impact, you may want to add a third layer of TBG. You have to exceed 60 Joules to be on the safe side. If you can draw three layers into full butterfly, 80 Joules are within reach if you use 30-40 gramm ammo. Tobias even reached 100 Joules, but he also used the old TBG (a bit stronger) and did not take any time for aiming.

    Thanks Jörg!
    Hmm I have already fired a slingshot to 60 joules (I think) but this was two years ago and I'm a lot weaker now but nevertheless I'll try. Is crushing a coconut a certain sign for the death of a zombie? I also have 30g ammo and the old thera band as well :D

    Coconuts are a pretty good test, but to be on the safe side I recommend a 25 mm particle board (Spanplatte) as a second test.
