    Hello everyone,

    I finally made my first slingshot. It's made from 15mm plywood and I probably won't attach strong bands because I want to shot a lot. It took about 2 hours to finish but almost all the time I was sanding and filing.

    Hope you like it.

    Nice work hawk. The pocket predator is a good choice. I've gotten a 3 shot clover leaf with mine. What bands you planning on?

    It's quite nice you have such ready access to tbg from work. You should try black as well, faster with light ammo.

    Nice done! good design for a first one. Pocket predators are great!
    I advice you to use thera band gold. It lasts longer than the others. If you don't want a strong shooter, just cut them thinner and untappered. The other TB colors are too thin and tear easyer.
