    the phoenix design that Jorge made will not work with tubular bands because there is not enough room for the ammo to fly though safely. i thought of drilling holes and inserting tubular bands but that would put the bands too low. but there is enough space for an arrow to fly through. waht are your thoughts?

    What do you mean it wont fly through safely with tubes? that is why you flip down with the slingshot when you shoot.

    yes it could have worked as a slingshot ,but I though that shooting arrows would just be something unique so I did it. It works really good. I use tube rubber kit for the sporting goods store and cut out the leather. after that I used string and installed the tubes. it shoots god but has minimal range. I will just have to practice and then I should be able to use it hunting squirrels. pictures coming soon.

    forks were too long for what I had in mind so i made a second on and accidently cut the handle slimmer so it looks nothing like a phoenix. I was not sure how to tie the string so this is how I did it. I grab the end knots when I shoot and the arrow is pinched by the other string. although there mest be a better way to do this without using a release, only because I don't have one. I wraped the handle in paracord and used linseed oil on the plywood not best looking but it works great. shoots about thirty feet and drops though.
