    <strong>...and again</strong><strong> too much time...</strong><br><br><br>This one is inspired by the well known Bill Hayes &ldquo;pocket predator&rdquo;. I read<br>so much about shooting TTF and how accurate it is, so I must give this a try. <br><br>Same wood as the one inspired by Geko.<br><br>Have a look <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_bounce.gif" alt="bounce" longdesc="27"><br><img src="http://i76.servimg.com/u/f76/18/08/39/77/hayes010.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><img src="http://i76.servimg.com/u/f76/18/08/39/77/hayes011.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><img src="http://i76.servimg.com/u/f76/18/08/39/77/hayes012.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><img src="http://i76.servimg.com/u/f76/18/08/39/77/hayes013.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><img src="http://i76.servimg.com/u/f76/18/08/39/77/hayes014.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><img src="http://i76.servimg.com/u/f76/18/08/39/77/hayes015.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><br><br><br><br>The first shooting results are quit nice, but I recognize,<br>that it has less power, even with much stronger bands I put on. But it is not<br>worse. I had to shoot more to see if it is more accurate than the others.<br><br><br>I hope you like this one too...

    Very nice as always! <br>That you recognise that it got less Power maybe is that the forks are lower so you dont feel the draw-weight in the same way and that makes you think it shoots weaker?

    <span class="postbody"><br><br><br><br>Maybe that can be an explanation, but it is no secret, that OTT are more powerful<br>than TTF. You have to flip an OTT (have seen a Video what difference it can<br>make when shooting &ldquo;Active&rdquo; flipping) and with the TTF I must force myself not<br>to flip. No problem since now, no fork hit... <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_redface.gif" alt="Embarassed" longdesc="10"></span>

    Awesome slingshot! At that "tempo" you will not have enough space to stock them... Great job!

    Very nice craftsmanship.
     
  9. I had last year, once made test ....<br>With over-the-top, and side binding!<br>-<br>The Slingshot clamped in a vice stock, and with laser reflection controled whether it moves ......<br>Always up to a screw head (the same distance, the same height), the tape drawn!<br>-<br>With a laser, where the ball would have to go targeted .....<br>10 times and thrown!<br>It was found that lateral connections is more accurate!<br>I like them but not so spin why most over the top!<br><br>Possibly one here can confirm the attempt to imitate, with Slingshot rifles?<br><br>-<br>-<br>-<br><br>Ich hatte letztes Jahr, mal Test gemacht....<br>Mit over the Top , und seitliche anbindung!<br>-<br>Die Slingshot in einem Schraub stock eingespannt, und mit Laserreflektion Kontroliert, ob sie sich bewegt......<br>Dann immer bis zu einem Schraubenkopf (gleicher abstand, gleiche Höhe) das Band gezogen!<br>-<br>Mit einem Laser angepeilt, wohin die Kugel gehen müsste.....<br>Und 10 mal geschleudert!<br>Es zeigte sich, das Seitliche Anbindung genauer ist!<br>Ich mag sie aber nicht so, schleuder deshalb meist over the Top!<br><br>Eventuell kann einer hier, den Versuch bestätigen, auch mit Slingshot Gewehren nachmachen?

    Nice and accurate work!<br>I have made a Fang (my very best accurately shooter) with the same deep finger grooves. I like the full feeling in the hand and it helps me to hold it equal every shoot.
