    Nice work Slawek! Both look very nice :)

    Stickshooting is not dangerous as long as you flip ;)

    I like tha acrilic a lot!!!
    As for the stickshot, I can't tell... This concept of shooter goes against my beliefs for a practical weapon.(my personal opinion). But it also looks nice.... Tactical.

    Very nice, both of them! I think the stickshot looks great! May be wise to wear a glove until you get accustomed to the feel of shooting it.

    Heed Will's advice. When testing my first stickshot, I wore an alpinestars gp style motorcycle glove, the marble didn't release properly and hit my pinkie knuckle...ouch!:eek: Still not sure about going back to it.

    Hi Sławek, twist and tweak the pouch, search for PFShooter on youtube for a detailed description of these terms. He uses this technique to shoot his PFS slingshots which have practically no fork at all. Nice looking slingshots!

    Ouch!! I've always found that if I grasp the injured hand firmly between my knees, and then hop around, yelling very bad words that it will make the hurt go away faster:D

    HI!
    iam just back from my local store with this : [​IMG]and i put it on my natural fork, like this: [​IMG]

    And i have to say this thing is AMAZING, atleast for me and for my experience with slingshots. Its way more powerfull then bands i alredy used even if i have double per side. This tubular i need to use alot more strenght to pull them to full size and they shoot just great. First i tried some marbles on beer can and 1st shot just wrecked it, then i tried 14mm hexnut and WOW it went through the can land whats left was just big hole in the middle.

    Since real TBG is quite expensive for me and that one "TBG like" i bought was like half cheap but i found they not last wery long, well for truth they cant last even one day thats why i want try to use this tubular ones i hope they last very long before i need to change them. They are not expensive, something about 4 euro so i can easly get new ones if they break. But for now iam very happy i bought this ones :)

    Nice slingshots. All of them.;)
    I like shooting with tubes too. Especially on cold days. Tubes are not so
    sensitive at low temperatures tha TBG.

    "newer tried this kind of slingshot its dangerous ?"

    They scare the cra p out of me. Which is not to say they don't shoot well if shot right.

    I'm not experienced with those...and still learning abot slingshots, but the stickshot concept activates my orthopaedic sense......and gives the same warning that I have looking at the external fixator frames of some of my students..........something like "this is not going to work...."
    Please forgive me stickshot lovers. Just my opinion.
