Ryan: Thanks! The metalfork is a bit too high to be a comfortable shooter. Im going to lower it later. The look of it reminds me of a rake <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"> The wooden one is made out of some thicker version of multiplex. The metalfork-slingshot has a handle of pine and the fork is just two bent steelrods welded togheter. <br><br>brat boon: Thank you <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"><br><br>Sponky: Nice slingshot!<br><br>Btw, Im going to paint my Phoenix (the wooden one) darkgreen later on.

<div>I had the same problem, I made a nice metal wood marriage, but then I realized much later the forks were way to high, so I bent them forward and put wood band attachment areas on the tips <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"><img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"><br><br><br>Now its a nice shooter... <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1">

hey, it looks... like a slingshot, but bee careful it dont look like the wood it that strong, if it break off and hit you it will hurt, and it will propertly hit you in the head <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_razz.gif" alt="Razz" longdesc="9">
