    Well, ... I know that it is an ugly one, but it simply works...<br>Its designed to shoot 17 mm Marbles.<br><br>Bands are 18 cm long, tapered from 25mm to 15 mm.<br>That works pretty good.<br><br>I did a minimal carving for ergonomics.... Nothing special.<br><br>[​IMG]<br><br>[​IMG]<br><br>[​IMG]

    Looks like MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard). Be careful to not get it wet at all, or you'll have a handful of pulp.

    Yeah, MDF is right. First I weren`t sure whether it`s tough enough, but now I know this one is. I`ve nearly shot 600 Marbles with this Slingshot, I´m convinced it will hold... By the way, I usually don`t shoot outside while it is raining...
