    So I'm reading most shooters are not using an arm brace.<br><br>However there are plenty of lanyard users.<br><br>What are they made from? Are they available as a product especially for slingshots.<br><br>Show me your lanyard !!!

    when I first got into shooting I used a wrist brace, but not anymore!<br><br>there are loads of videos on youtube for making slings and lanyards, make mine from paracord, the only thing is though it can be quite addictive! <br><br><img src="http://i212.photobucket.com/albums/cc317/urban_paladin/2011-04-05133457.jpg" border="0" alt="">

    I use rubber tubing for lanyards. I tie it on with string and it works nice cause it sticks to your arm sorta.

    I had a bunch of army lanyards laying around so I drilled an I hook into the bottom of a natural and put a lanyard on it, they help with storage if your going to hang your slingshots.

    I paracord definitley. There are many tutorials online showing how to make different patterns. I put small lanyards on my EDC knives that I carry.

    paracord, or, if you don't have one, you can try some shoelaces <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_wink.gif" alt="Wink" longdesc="15">

    it makes for a nice little sideline too, I sell a lot of key fobs and ropework stuff to the tourists through a local craft shop in the town <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2">

    well I make and sell them too, I don't have any left to put up any pics I'm afraid, all the ones I'd carved this year have gone... nice little earner too, some simple animal carvings and a bit of bound ropework, as a hand rest- an easy £30! <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2">

    cool idea. I plan to start selling slingshots soon, but mine wont be cheap.. I consider them art works plus I couldn't afford to sell them as cheap as some of the vendors. <br> I am really new to this and all, but I must say, my slingshots are awesome lol. *tooting my own horn
