    Hi!

    I have a Marksman Laserhhawk 3055 slingshot (new).

    Is this normal, that the slingshot is asymmetrical?
    The stand and the handle are not in same line. The stand is skewed to the left.
    Is this wrong, or normal?

    Thanks,
    Zoli

    I'm taking a guess here, but they may have built that slight offset to compensate for the tendency of slingshots to twist in the hand. And then it could be a mistake too. You should be able to gently straighten it back out by hand if it concerns you.

    I don't know about the producer of this slingshot, but if you analize the human forearm and wrist position, to make a straight shot you have to extend a little your wrist . This can explain some assimetry.

    Good idea! I had basically the same model when I was a kid, and I do remember it had some play in it. Contact via email and if that doesn't work, just try and straighten it back out.

    Actually, I would bend all of mine that way before I started to build my own. Dead straight never seemed to fit right.
