    Hi Joerg, I voted for the skeleton bullpup because it combines practicality, simplicitiy and has a design where the rubber doesn't get "tired". For cool looks I'd have gone with the pulley bullpup. When I saw the video for that one I knew I had to make one and am now hooked on the rubber stuff. Thanks Joerg:D

    I recommend waiting two more hours, then the new vid will be online! Just to avoid misunderstandings, it shows the candidates again in action.

    ok I have to go with the pump action, and believe me it is a very tough choice between the bullpup and it.<br><br>How could you improve it? Make entropy killing devices affecting its bands, and stronger bands <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"> MAN I still want to build a pump action slingshot so so so bad...

    I absolutely love the pulley bullpup<br><br>I think it has a nice balance between power, reload speed, and especially utility while still being very accurate (via scope)<br><br>winch cannon would be nice but probably impractical<br><br>keep up the videos! theyre amazing!

    I voted for #6, but looking back, I think #5 has the most potential with the magazine.

    I hod to vote for the pump action because it looks really cool, it seems pretty powerful and looks like so much fun to break bottles with! I also like it because of how you reload it, its gotta be the fastest reloading slingshot.

    voted #6, because it looks truly great and professional, and is practical too.<br>The #3 is very good too, but I don't see where it could be developed further.

    I have to say the side-by side is the best out o the choices.<br><br>One of the challenges that small game hunters such as myself have is having to hit such a small target. I choose to hunt with a bow, since it is the least restricted weapon in Canada.<br><br>I would like to see the side-by-side modified to shoot arrows. It would be a huge advantage to have a follow up shot when shooting targets as small as squirrels. I also like the way it would handle, as a rifle. The hybridization of rifle/bow could become pretty popular among the small game hunting crowd.

    Number 3 was great it looked like the most overall best that wasn't to big or hard to use
