    Started this a while ago (this thing broke the vise ;) ), finished it just now.

    The strap closes finely around my hand and secures that I hold it the same every time.

    It is build like my Scrapshooter, a Shackle clamped between a flat metal bar and fitted with grip material (in this case some foamy rubber and a red textile strap).

    I haven't shot it yet and won't shoot it with the red tubes you see. These are just for display.

    I hope you like it.

    Very good work! You have a great eye for seeing potential slingshots from metal components! I'm always interested to see what you come up with next

    Thank you, I guess i am not the great 'shaper' so I have to take the things that are already (or almost) in shape and slap them together. But I have to say, sometimes I wonder about how the hell I could come up with this :confused:

    mvd, it looks like a prop from an 80s post apocalyptic movie, I dig it!

    Thank you, I would have uesed black one too if I had any. The only things I bought for slingshots were a rollercutter, a cutting-mat, some rasps and and rubber. Everything else is already around.

    Thank you, I never saw or heard of a post apocalyptic movie that has a slingshot, do you?

    It has a Pickle fork style somehow. Nice recycling! I'm curious about the shooting!

    mvd, when I was a kid I saw one but it was very low budget and I cant remember the name, a lil 12yr old kid that turned out to be a cyborg had one. cheesy movie but I as a 10yr old at the time it was the coolest thing.

    Ist legal da es nicht hinter dem handgelenk aufliegt sondern auf der hand.
    Ich benutz das ding aber eigentlich gar nicht da ich viel bequemere schleudern hab.
