Brothers Willow €52 EU / $73 World

Two little natural Y branches that came of one gnarly Willow, the bigger brother with a perfect fork and very interesting grain and the little brother with a crooked recurve. Both have purple(heart) butts from their adventures.
Designed for tube rubber to be slipped onto the forks and possibly secured with other rubber. But can be fitted with flats too.

Even though its willow and the forks are really thin, the branches have full rings in and they are very Strong.. I tried to brake them with my arms but couldnt.

Hmmm... I guess people don't like to click on slingshot registry links.... only one third of people who viewed this thread went to the registry.
Ill take some more photos later and post them directly here then.

For now just pics of the donor tree, if someone knows the species of the willow pls tell me since I don't :) Thanks!

No love for the tree :eek:

I realized I put the pricetags in Euro which was a MISTAKE: the prices are USD 70 and USD 35 or USD100 both together. Bands, pouches, shipping included.
:rolleyes:

Speaking about bands, I took some photos of them banded up, and since I don't have any smaller tubes the smaller one comes with TBG 1/2 inch x 9 inches active length and with a Leon13 2inch pouch. The bigger has 7.5 inches 5080 active length and a Supersure pouch.

I think the pair looks good with TBG and 5080 as bands and attachment "strips" respectively. Waddya all think?

I wanted to ask, is there a reason to be afraid of that tube attachment on the bigger one? Since the forks are in a 90° angle to the tube rubber when pulled? Someone on the other forum said it wont last, but 5080 is thicker then tbg and tbg last long when the pressure is on the middle of band.

If someone wants this pair or one of them, I am more than willing to negotiate the price. Or maybe even to trade something for them. So feel free to post an offer.
