    Hey fellow sling shooters!!!

    A couple of days ago i cut a nice maple fork to make a nice frame that i could let loose 7-8mm steels at rather dangerous speeds... and all i can say is that it works!!! I can honestly say ive never shot a slingshot that shoots this fast!!! Unfortunately i dont own a crony, any couldnt seem to figure out that app... I've got it banded with 2 layers of theraband blue (actually its a different brand but it works just a good i think, pretty much the same thickness as well) cut for butterfly. and it can be shot in hammer grip and finger support, as im sort of in between the two at the moment... hammer feels better, but i seem to be more accurate with finger support.....??

    anyway here it is

    Amazing shooter jakobkurt. Shooting smaller ammo is such a lot of fun. I recently enjoyed shooting 7 mm steel with single TBG or double TBB. Thanks for sharing!

    Great work! Maple is just beautiful anyway, but the shape you turned that into is excellent! That finish makes it look like you carved it from marble instead of maple!

    Great job.
    Sometimes i'm shooting with 7 mm steelball on bottles from 20 m away.
    It gives nice round holes in the glass.

    Thanks very much for all the nice words!!!! At first I thought it wasn't very comfortable to hold, but now my hand has seemed to mold itself to its shape and now it feels amazing! I just can't seem to find anything (that I already have) to use as a back stop/catch for it as it goes through everything I have used for larger amo.... Towels, carpet of cuts, and so on :eek: ... And it's so light to pull!!!!!!!
