    Hi guys<br>I bought me a really cheap copy of the daisy f 16, shooted it about 15 ( <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_mad.gif" alt="Mad" longdesc="8"><img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_mad.gif" alt="Mad" longdesc="8"><img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_mad.gif" alt="Mad" longdesc="8"><img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_mad.gif" alt="Mad" longdesc="8"><img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_mad.gif" alt="Mad" longdesc="8"> ) times and then the rubbed braked!So i decided to get somne thera tube blue on ebay and fixed it with some alcohol to the slingshot.And now i had the idea to make the slingshot more heavyer. I saw that the grip is hollow ansd so i want to fill iut with any type of materal,but i dont no witch one ?I think if something like rice?

    #1 This Post is in the Wrong Thread (place)....<br><br>but besides that small glitch (Fixable by ANY Admin) You could find small rocks to fill up the space inside the handle & then melt some HOT Glue Sticks to keep the rocks from rolling around..... would work well with the sand idea as well - fill in some sand then cover with hot glue ???

    Maybe instead of filling in the hollow you could just take the plastic handle off and make something more solid to fit it. Some slabs of wood, micarta, etc. with some grooves to fit over the frame wouldn't be too hard to make. Plus it would probably look better. If you are going to fill something like that though I would say epoxy is a good choice.

    <span class="postbody"><br>Lead balls might do the trick or concrete( reinforced) . I am not sure if it is concrete we say Ciment in french. To reinforce it you must mix 2 part of "ciment" with 1 part of Rhin sand and 2 part of stones( in that case small or crushed) and water of course.</span>

    Hi <strong><a href="http://theslingshotforum.forumotion.com/u1537" class="postlink">Spatzenterrorist</a>,<br>Use a epoxy clay putty that is used to seal leak pipes and water tanks. It comes in two cakes, Reisin and Hardner. Get some iron filings(iron powder) and mix in it. It will make it heavy. You can add colour if your handle is transparent. </strong><strong>Cover the outer surface with plastic food foil first. </strong><strong>Just fill it in nicely without spreading it on the outer surface. <br></strong>

    <span class="postbody"><br><br>I was gonna suggest a FIMO handle, but that's also a great idea.<br><br>edit: Also, because of the F16's really tall fork height, I'd add some pieces of tubing to the forks to make finger bracing more comfy, or just make the bands extra long so they slide over the fork all the way down to the handle. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cool.gif" alt="Cool" longdesc="6"></span>
