    [​IMG][​IMG]<img src="http://i48.servimg.com/u/f48/17/48/58/71/comp_i31.jpg" border="0" alt="">Hey guys<br><br> I never could decide if I want to shoot hammer grip or finger/thumb support. I got tired to carry always two kind of slingshots with me.<br><br>So I designed this one for me. I call it Santik. It is a Filipino name for slingshot. <br><br>Now I have only one design and I can shoot it with the grip I want. <br><br>Sometimes I alternate every shot. It's fun and I like this design so much that I already made five on them. <br><br>I must say though, that I like the straight hammer grip better than the 'pistol' grip what requires a more or less straighter wrist. It's just my personal preference. <br><br>Hope you like it.
