Because it is slightly angled the sling rotation aligns spot on cause it has no room to twist in my hand.

    Looks nice.<br>Do you have enough grip to hold it, because it looks <strong>very</strong> smooth? <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_lol.gif" alt="Laughing" longdesc="7"><br>Is it polished,oiled or it is both?

    It has 3 thin coats of varnish, it has a nice grip i cut it a bit longer than i usually do. i sanded it very fine because it is for my collection, not going to be banded.

    Very nice satin finished. )) The lines look decent.<br>The high polish does not loosen grip. It acts like glass surface.

    i shot with it for about a week before its final sanding and varnishing, it is an accurate shooter! im not going to band it now because i have another 3 slingshots, two naturals and one that i made from scrap wood and metal and im currently working on a side shooter with finger grooves. im also trying different styles so i don't want to experience any fork hits with it. thank u all for your good comments!!!
