    Cool, looks heavy duty. I suppose you could drive nails with it as well. Gives a new meaning to hammer fist.

    the fork height is only 23mm! a 25mm steel ball go only a few millimeter over the Hand! and i shot more than 100 joule of energy with this slingshot. <br> once it reaches and the hand is broken.<br><br>I have not yet used in this slingshot, but friends shot a few times on the guard.<br><br>here is a video, a older video, i dont like this much... but it´s the only one i have made with 25mm <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_neutral.gif" alt="Neutral" longdesc="20"><br><br><a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aNLFR3hh10o" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aNLFR3hh10o</a>

    The guard is because you broke your hand recently?

    I liked this design so well that I'm making a very similar one myself. If I may ask, what size of band set are you using? Have you tried multi-shot with this style of shooting? Maybe like 2x 16mm balls?

    @Kyl, the bands: 3,5cm x 2,5cm 2 layer per side 29cm long, for butterfly shooting.<br>no i dont try multi-shot, i think it is better a big one as two smal.<br><br>the grip is a 3/4" metal tube (watertube) 10cm long the fork metal is 8x20mm<br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=21&u=16906761" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i40.servimg.com/u/f40/16/90/67/61/schleu13.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a>
