    Hell, it looks better than the one I made. I found with side shooters that through the fork band attachment makes for a more accurate shot with no need for flipping. Flipping sideways is very awkward.

    yer, i shoot sideways most time, somehow it feels for natural for me. but i never needed to flip, it always worked without flipping.

    I tried to sell them, but it seems like people dont want to Pay enough to make it worth. <br>I need to sell this One for around 60 to 80 Dollars , Took me around 6 hours to make it, Plus the costs for wood, rubber etc. If i would sell it on eBay for example, im Sure i wouldnt get more than 30. I Tried it without putting up a Minimum price, ended up that i had to sell for 11 euros, which really sucked. The only company with real prices is flippinout slingshots.

    Nice work ! I`ve gone through the same deal as you have ...people want quality workmanship BUT don`t want to pay for it Hint : make a company plaster ads all over, brag up the product<remember to copy someone elses work>and then sell whatever cheap <<<<< the trick that companies pull is ::: someone sees a nice product (such as the one pictured here ) then they copy it and people think thet are getting an "origial" I love corporations..NOT ! With the nice work you did on this plus the design , to me <hey i just an old man>you could have a good start at...sorry got interrupted ,had to chase one of them tree rats out of the house lol... a good start at making custom made slingshots. People that want quality will pay for it ,so don`t get discouraged at first <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_surprised.gif" alt="Surprised" longdesc="4">) Just a personal thing..we have a fox that comes into the house if we don`t feed it ..maybe it will show up early and have the squirrel that keeps coming in ,, for dinner !!!

    If i had enough money i will buy it, really. I just have to keep making them myself and try to get as good as you are. I still have some projects goin' on but no time for the moment but that kind of ss is on my " To do" list. Cheers man.
