    I got an idea about a month ago..<br>So I made these. The one with the handslap protection isn't very comfortable, but the next one will be better. I tried to make a shape that does the same thing as Flippin out' s hare splitter design...without copying anyone.<br>The forks could be made even lower, but I wanted to be on the safe side with these first ones.<br>As usual the finish could be a lot better..<br>Feel free to comment on them!<br><br><img src="https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-OVqSMq-zm8s/UL-FTG-LUXI/AAAAAAAAAQ4/-ije_PvtTOc/s400/20121205_193014.jpg?gl=FI&source=mog&hl=fi&gl=fi" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-K3jv-og2kTI/UL-FbwlnoVI/AAAAAAAAARA/Vy-xx63ihO0/s400/20121205_193107.jpg?gl=FI&source=mog&hl=fi&gl=fi" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-1HVfycIInzQ/UL-FmCz_MxI/AAAAAAAAARI/Iql_L4ihYos/s400/20121205_193128.jpg?gl=FI&source=mog&hl=fi&gl=fi" border="0" alt=""><br><br>A

    <div>I'm working on those same lines. I think if you use the same type of tail piece that Jeorge has on one of his, You will experience less pivot around it's center. <br>How are you keeping the fork from turning in the handle?<br>Looks good! Keep those wheels turning!</div><div class="clear"></div><div class="signature_div">
    <br>Failed perception is when you have a gun, I have a slingshot and you think you are the only one that is armed. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_lol.gif" alt="Laughing" longdesc="7">

    Looks nice! The second one reminds me on Joergs "Wasp" slingshot.

    ^ There is a steel pin to keep it from turning. It`s visible in the first and second pic. I didn`t countersink it all the way in on that one, so it is still possible to remove it...<br>The fork has to be in front of the grip if you're going for a low fork, because the iron rod is 11mm thick. It's a lot quicker to make than a multiplex hammerhead. Uglier too, haha!!!<br><br>A

    Sure Zwillie, go ahead! <br>The only thing I don' t like about the online slingshot community is the "Designer" thing. Seriously , coming up with new slingshot design isn't such a big deal, adding a corner here or removing a curve there isn't something you can call a new design. It still looks like a Y. <br>But of course one should be polite and ask before copying!<br><br>Good luck!<br><br>A

    +1<br>If i put something like a drawing, a movie, pictures, etc,... on the internet, someone might use it. Even in commercial ways. If i don' t want that to happen i just don' t put it online.<br>And as you said, asking is a sign of politness and respect.
