    Black Widow is on sale at the local TSC... but I didnt actually see one in the case... :s I probably could have bought for the price...<br><br>It's similar to a marksman I have though from what I seen, can't say I'm a fan.

    I've had both over the years, go with the back widow, if you shop around in Manchester you should be able to pick one up for around a tenner or so great value for money

    I bought a black widow for £5 20 years ago. I still use it and have put more powerful bands on. I like how it folds and is easy to carry. My friend bought the pro diablo 2 and it is superb but not so easy to carry.<br><br>Though I have to say now I'm using theraband, the BW is an effort to use.<br><br>Jenko022.

    Good frame guys. I of course put flats on mine and love it. Folds up nice and is compact. I'm a big fan of Wrist-braced slingshots-whether stationary or foldable. Flatband <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2">

    I had a black widow about 30 years ago when i was a kid , it was great fun . I saved my pocket money for it and fired marbles out of it . I got quite good with it . I had a cobra some years back but it got stolen . I bought a pro diablo a couple of months back ,i like it as it reminds me of being 11 again . I'm gonna take it with me when i go clay shooting and have a play .

    I got the very old Marksman 3040 folding sling and as far as i can remember it shot well ( been some 15+ years since i last used it and the bands are perished now so goto get new ones ) <br><br>Also got the pro diablo which shoots ok - i've only had it a week or so - so its still early days for an informed opinion , but so far i like it but definately needs more powerful bands imo <br><br>I'm just using these as a way of getting back into slings and once i'm happy with my performance with them i'll be getting the dankung panther with flat bands <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1">
