    The small dark one was put into a fire one weekend to dry it out. He got a bit burned, I call him "Lil Smokey". It's dead on and a whole lot of fun to shoot! He's small enough to put into my pocket on any given weekend. Don't let his size fool you, he packs a punch he he. <br>My other personal favorite slingshot is the larger fantastically designed by nature beauty. I was walking through the woods one day and found her lying there on a downed tree. I rescued her, brought her home, did a little work on her to prepare her for attaching the tubes and she was done. It's very accurate and fun to take along when I go visit my family on the farm. She's not very easy to stick in a pocket, so I mostly just carry her. One thing you'll learn about me is that I like my slingshots right off the tree.<br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=10&u=18057810" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i12.servimg.com/u/f12/18/05/78/10/treest13.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a>

    Nice looking slingers my friend you may wanna get the forks on the left one there a little shorter might make slinging easier for you and take some wrist strain away. By no means I am saying hack it to nothing either a good balance will give you nice looks and most important good performance.<br><br>As for the one on the right it looks sturdy and well balanced good job on the build.
