    Yer well it was a friend, just because i was pissed for selling it for 18. And the wood isnt Free, so that hardly covers my Costa for wood, Tools and stuff. The wood in the middle is acacia. And rapfen Bets for his own stuff every Time. So if someone wants to Report me now, Do what you like. I only wanted to get a fair price for my work. And i Know, 30 is still cheap, but i dont want to take loads if money, its still a Hobby.

    30 is very good price. Only a person, who made a slingshot by himself, is able to know the price.

    That' s true... I can' t put a price on a slingshot i make( if it' s a nice one of course), i think that' s why i give them to my friends or familly. The one TP is selling is 50 euro worth to me. I will not buy it because i make them myself, but not so nice than that one.<br>30 seems to be a friendly price to me.

    If you take a look at <a href="http://www.simple-shot.com/" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">THIS</a> site you will see the prices people are asking for their slingshots. Tysonspapa' s slingshot is comparable to those beauties.

    Getting a fair price for your work is almost impossible on the cruel world of the free market...<br>Only chance to achieve that, I think, is to make many pieces simultaneously (like in a small line of production), so that you reduce the overall time dedicated to each piece... <br>Then, by selling many pieces at a competitive price, one might make such an endeavour worthwhile...<br>

    First I would like for you to shoot it with three layers of gold in a video so i can see how it shoots<br><br><br>Because I have had bad experience with glued slingshots
     
  15. I can understand being wary, especially if you haven't seen someone's workmanship before. A shody job gluing and pressing and a slingshot becomes a jigsaw puzzle with rubber attached not fit for shooting. (Nothing against your craftsmanship Tyson) But it is always best to err on the side of caution with internet purchases. Though you can tell by one look at the seams that they are cleanly joined and this is a well made shooter.

    Dont have Tb Gold here right now, but i have a scale to measure draw Weight up to 70 pounds, think thats ok. Gonna make a Video then.But theres no need for it, its very solid. I wouldnt sell it if i wouldnt Trust it.
     
  17. It would still be awesome to this shooter in action, show off your handywork and all that.

    doesnt matter, it will automaticly change the currency. i think. when i donate to game servers i paid 10 dollars, then they took 7 euros of my bank account.
