    Hello again everyone.

    A while ago I posted a mini named mergambi.

    Today I would like to present his bigger brother and sister. Sorry for the glare on the first photo.

    They are both made with walnut cores, maple spacers, and cherry laminate faces. One sports a walnut grip and the other an oak. They are both ergonomic and ambidextrous.

    They have been finished with Tung Oil and multiple coats of PU.

    Dimensions:
    Height: 11 cm (4 3/4 in)
    Width: 6.5 cm (2.5 in)
    Fork width: 15mm (5/8 in)
    Fork gap: 3 cm (1.25 in)

    Here is a picture of one in my larger sized hand.

    Thanks for looking.

    I like these just like the mini's. The laminating is really nice. I like the pins as well. Overall some very well made slingshots.

    I really like these smaller shooters! It is a real challenge to pack that much visual appeal and 'wow factor' (did I really just use such a term??:eek:) into a frame that small! Impressive stuff, sir!!

    I marvel at the creativity and the beauty of these little jewels but also the magnificent photos. So many of you members take great pictures with striking backgrounds.

    Hi Darren,

    What I like the best here is the simplicity of the structure and the well balanced effort and outcome. Your experience is clearly visible, but there's no overdo. Pure function and nice useful details can be found in those shooters. Eyecatching but built to shoot :). Sometimes it's hard to manage the two at the same time.

    Have a nice day,
    Tremo
