    People sometimes say that I don't make conventional slingshots anymore.

    This morning I went through my blog and imageshack library... I think I overlooked some, but I believe I made more than 30 very conventional frames in 2013, plus many more crazy contraptions.

    I did this little (non public) slide show for you.

    A great compilation.
    I wonder if there will be a next evolution-step of slingshots next year... a Rambone 2.0 ? :)

    Nice video joerg! You can really see you have been working a lot on the rambone ;)

    Yes, 2013 was the year of the Rambone, as 2012 was the year of the Moorhammer...

    I have no idea what 2014 will bring, other than some more work on an arrow shooting Rambone version.

    Nice work on those shooters Joerg! I've definitely go some favorites among those you've made. But I keep going back to that knife shooter you made not long ago - that one really stuck in my mind (no pun intended :)). The Rambones and variations are all really nice - the different types of wood and finishes really help showcase the piece.

    For 2014, I'd like to see some more evolution of your steampunk slingshots. I suspect you can take that concept even further than you have so far. And can you imagine for New Year's Eve 2014 - a steampunk Rocketception 2 - with smoke and steam pouring out of the launcher as it prepares to fire. I'm sure you've got plenty of cool ideas planned for this new year.

    Very nice compilation. It´s hard to say, which is my favorite.
    I think, you`re having the same problem.

    I just counted... from those 30 slingshots, I gave 17 away and still have 13. Soon 2 more will be sent off to others.

    Which one is my favorite? Probably the Rambone made from Persimmon.
