The fork is made of a flat piece of stainless steel (3mmx20mmx140mm). The fork width is 80mm, the height is 25mm. The handle is made of 18mm multiplex, the shape of the handle was taken from Jörg Spraves Leadlauncher, a really comfortable design for a handle. I attached two layers of thera band gold 21mm/14mm(fork/pouch) with a length of 22cm. This is great for shooting steel balls up to 12mm in diameter. With this slingshot and bandset I shot a 12mm steelball with a speed of 74m/s (243fps).

    Great slingshot! I also think the lead launcher handle is one of the best for hammer grip shooting.
