    I made these two slingshots from PVC water pipe. The first is from 1/2" nominal sch.40 which I heated and bent. The second of from 1/2 actual hotwater pipe using elbows and tees. I french-whipped both handles using tarred twine for better grip. Cheap but effect, I'm happy with the results.

    Nice shooters!

    I've been contemplating a bent one like that, maybe with shorter forks.

    get slingshot!
    how strong are those bands? how much power do you get with the high forks?

    Fork length not bad at all for single rubber but I would recommend shortening them if going to double Thera-Band Golds for less wrist stress.

    I'd probably go with shorter forks too, but that's mostly because I like the short fork look better

    I'm an old school old fart so prefer the looks of longer forks. :rolleyes:

    Interesting looking, do they flex much in use?
