    It's very very tempting... too bad the car is giving us troubles lately and sucking all the money <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_sad.gif" alt="Sad" longdesc="3"><br><br><br>Gee the shipping is really about 6 euros more than if I buy any other slingshot... Why is that? Special slingshot special shipping rates? Or is this reflective of a new shipping rate not yet applied to the others? :s

    Ah OK, I had to manually start the "reload". The old page was obviously still in the browser cache.

    Ok, if i have to say it, the moorhammer alum is 65 euros and 74 shipped, but the alum howitzer is 37.50 euros and 40.50 shipped... the weight difference is 55 grams in favor of the moorhammer... but does it equal that much more shipping???<br><br><br>It is obvious that shipping is more for the moorhammer.... it costs 9 euros to ship as opposed to the 3 with others.... Just asking.

    <span class="postbody"><br><br>I think both products are way too cheap, given the amount of time and material that went into it. <br><br>I witnessed the whole process, so I know what I am talking about.<br><br>It is true that the Howitzer is cheaper - it is ridiculously underpriced, really. Peter probably loses money with every one he sells. <br><br>Time will tell if enough people are willing to pay the fair, but more expensive price for the Moorhammer. Keep in mind this is still the best slingshot I ever designed - in fact, I lost a bit of motivation to do new designs, simply because I don't know how to improve it. That is why I am now more into slingshot crossbows again.</span>

    <i>I</i>nsightful post, but im curious to hear from the manufacturer about why the price increase on the international shipping option : not the price of the slingshot itself. I agree, the howitzer is under-priced, but why/where/how does the increase in shipping price come in from slingshot to slingshot?? The weights are comparable...??? I'm so confused.<br><br>That is all I wanted to know... <br><br><br>This is not criticism , just a genuine question. If I'm not entitled to ask so be it, but letting me know would be nice.<br><br><br>edit-missed the millbro post above...

    Well, I can tell you that I have shipped many slingshots these last few years, most of them international (from all my raffles). <br><br>You have two choices. <br><br>Rather cheap, but ininsured and untraceable. Or very expensive, but with insurance and a tracking number. I mostly used the cheap way.<br><br>About every 10th slingshot that I shipped never made it to the recipient. Or at least that is what the recipients said (a few guys might have just wanted a second one). Makes no difference to the supplier.<br><br>The message is that 9 quid for international shipping is very reasonable. I probably ended spending more, on average.

    Why don't you contact Peter directly? This forum is probably not the best place to discuss his pricing strategies.
