    Yes, I just made this even easier. And wow, does it work incredibly well. I just took a picture to illustrate how simple you can do it but this is not optimal.

    welcome to the slingbow golf tee!

    and check out the different sizes! I bet the 3 wood would work perfectly on a side shooter like the one I am working on now.

    I would probably play around with modifying the shape so that the arrow easily slips into its proper groove. I had no trouble though using it as is (I did tape it to the forks for support in the shown position).


    Cheers.

    Those are probably easier to find than the shaving brushes that Ruthie uses and no need to alter them. Good Idea.

    a full set of 4 will cost you less than a single wisker bisuit. I also would make a few changes, I will update with those mods soon. I can't get time to show it loaded but I will try and show how you can furthur adapt is later.

    a very interesting option. I shall look forward to hearing more about the modifications you have in mind. I've been meaning to pop to the art shop and see whether any oil painting brushes have the right sort of characteristics. And I should have a manufactured whisker biscuit arriving any day so it will be interesting to make comparisons with the shaving brushes.
