    Hello from Iowa!

    Just finished making my first slingshot since 1962.
    It's a Hammerhead with tapered Theraband Gold made to the dimensions from Joerg's band calculator.
    Wow - did not know slingshots could be so powerful! The new Hammerhead shoots so much harder than my old wrist rockets and home made "Y" tree branch slings! The old sling in the picture has the original rubber from 1962, so it's too rotten to shoot any more.
    Really tears up the backstop ammo catcher in a hurry!
    Thanks, Joerg, for The Slingshot Channel - and thanks for that handy band dimension calculator - and thanks for the Hammerhead design!

    Welcome, nice to have you here! Beautiful slingshot too, love the finger grooves! I wish I could find some quality plywood to work with
