    I like that he makes good slingshots for a good price. They are all good in design and craftsmanship.

    i have never seen the kind of clearcoat he uses over here.<br>doens´t look like paint, more like a kind of sprayable plastic.

    Those gamekeeper slingshots look solid, yet easy to make.

    today i took out my PR2 for a longer "test" in my backpocket.<br>was really fun to shot with!<br>i shot appels down from a wild apple tree.<br>after a very short time a had a nice feeling for the slingshot.<br>as i said i had to turn the bands to the other side...maybe i shoot a bit wierd, but i´m right handed and a use the right hand for the pouch, so the rubber was attached on the wrong side for me.<br><br>very good AND powerful shooter.<br><br>i can see why you added the new grooves in your PR3 now, i expect a firmer grip. but i still dislike the folded bands at the tips...maybe a custom model with indexfinger-groove and PR2 Forkwith would be my perfect slingshot for me.<br><br>i must admit, that i expected a smoother feeling. the thumbsupport is still pretty rough. looks like one not more then 2 layers of clear coat.<br><br>i would also suggest to FIRST add one laxer of coat, THEN write down your name on it and then add the last layers of coating, because the black ink directly on the wood left black lines where the ink crawled into the grain.<br><br>anyway, i like it. i will add a leatherband for my wrist through the pinky-hole and it will be in my backpocket very often from now on.

    <span class="postbody"><br><br><br><br>thanks mate, i now use a different pen to sign them and it as totally sorted out the little problem,<br><br>but as for the folded bands it is the only way to fit wide bands to my frames without having bulky forks, we had a discussion on this the other day and a few top shooters said they all fit there bands folded and even believe its better for accuracy, i also find it to be much more accurate folded - john <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_wink.gif" alt="Wink" longdesc="15"></span>
