I'm home-making these. I've also invented a new method to easily turn a slingshot into a slingbow.

good luck with that. I see around $5 to $10 in parts depending on the model and maybe 2 hrs work if that...seems you're paying yourself around $45 per hour. I doubt the top pros make much more than that for beautiful art. Not trying to be rude but you may want to introduce yourself and check out what the members are capable of before trying to overcharge for something many of us have knocked out in a half hour, it feels insulting.

on a lighter note, welcome to the home of the best builders around. hopefully you stay around and get to know some people.
The cost is much higher. Go to the hardware store and online and try making any of my slingshots with $5 and half an hour time. Make a 30 minute youtube video where you show us the receipts of your purchases and where you record yourself making it.

Don't tear others down to make yourself feel good, especially in the slingshot community. I welcome criticisms, but not hatred.
I once read a line from a famous poet, ''Thou doth protest too much.''
My point is you got up in arms over the opinion of a stranger, leading me to believe you know where I'm coming from. I tore no one down, I told you the truth. You have no bearing on how I view myself, and no hate was given, I know you not well enough to hate.
No, protest, just a factual refutation. As for hatred, it's like a stink; some people get so used to their own, they don't even know they carry it.
Do you really believe what you type? If so, I feel sorry for you.
I disagree. 10 dollars and 2 hours work, done by an experienced slingshot maker who knows his sources and has the proper tools, IS possible. I have done that myself several times.

On the other hand, I do not think that 45 dollars per hour is too much for a qualified artisan. My plumber charges way more than that, and his work is OK at best.
I agree fully, 45 per if a qualified artisan, I don't believe this instance fits though.
Hey Shocklay, nice to see you again. I never realized it cost so much to go to the hardware store and spent $8 for the parts. You must live a looooong way from a hardware store to have to spend over fifty bucks on gas to make that abortion a viable choice.
