    I think we should vote for a slingshot of the year 2013.
    What do you think about it?
    The rules:
    -Everyone may enter two slingshots to the contest.
    -By posting a picture of the slingshot and a link to the thread it was presented in.
    -The slingshot must have been presented between 01.01.2013 and 31.12.2013.
    -Only enter you own slingshots:)

    The voting will start 15.02.2014.

    The reward will be a huge amount of fame and the title "builder of slingshot of the year 2013":)

    Guys, I love the idea, but please understand that I won't be a contender. I will follow the thread with great interest and will certainly also vote, but other than that I believe I should be neutral.

    Don't get me wrong, I don't think my frames are the nicest ones anyway, but just applying feels awkward.

    Slingshot of the year - man, I don't think I'd have a chance - way too much good stuff out there. But, I'll be happy to cast my vote when the time comes.

    I wonder - would it be more comfortable if instead of entering your own work we instead suggested others work for the votes? Perhaps people would feel less intimidated? What do you think Achso?

    okay i think it is not good to say "... got the best" if someone cant build nice slingshots
    but otherwise it´s good because if you have the "nicest" you feel great :)
    i won´t post some of mine :D
    i wish you an happy new year and an nice voting
