    As most of you know, i like to build my own designs.
    But as Jörg said in many threads, Moorhammer is his best slingshot , i had to check this.;)
    And what can i say, it feels very comfortable in my hand.
    It´s made out of German oak with a 3 mm alu core and two pins out of brass.
    Hope you like it.

    I like the looks of that a lot.

    Should be very sturdy with that core. It accents the wood color very nicely.

    Niiiice work! I haven't ever had any experience with German oak before, but the color and grain is really something. Combine that and an aluminum core...dynamite recipe!

    Nice work. I like the subtle color and the grain structure of the wood. It's a nice, simple, smooth design. Well done.

    @ all
    Thank you all for your kind words.
    @ Lars
    I took hot glue for this. I made the alu and the wood
    warm,took the glue on and pressed them together.

    So is "German Oak" a species of wood? Or is it simply oak from Germany?

    It's only oak from Germany. Nothing special,but very solid.

    Ally core with oak, it's like a pork sandwich with bacon on top, two great things make one wonderful thing.

    Thanxxxxx xXdoomXx

    Hi Be,
    yes it´s very handy.
    I got this piece of wood from my brother.
    Sometimes he´s a nice guy. No i´ve to correct, he is always a nice guy.:rolleyes:

    Hmm, Volkswagen i´ve never tried, but now it´s in my mind.:)

    Thanks, but you know, to much pork isn´t good for your health. Sometimes you should eat more beef. It neutralizes the bad influence of pork.:D

    We'll have to compromise with a bacon hamburger! They neutralize each others bad influence so you can have as many as you like;).
