    Hi all, Matt here from highland catapults. I have only just joined this forum and would really like to just say thank you very much to the guys on here that have been supporting me and buying my catapults and saying such kind comments about them. It is very much appreciated. I hope to chat with everyone soon, many thanks again, Matt

    <div>Ah, thanks Onnod.<br><br>I have seen this site before, to be honest ( not to be a dick) at the time I didnt think much of the cattys or the prices. I still dont like the prices <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_razz.gif" alt="Razz" longdesc="9"><br><br>Cattys are decent tho, its not like 18mm birch ply will break , and adding the other nice woods gives some actual value to them... which may make that 27 pound price decent... I would have to see some of the custom work and prices now to really give an opinion tho or perhaps hold one in my hand....<img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"><br><br><br>maybe you would be interested in our Around the world slingshot trade? that way you can get your work into the hands of some ppl from here who would review it <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"><br><br>I like that you have made a business out of this tho, congratulations and I wish you good fortune with this! <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"><br><br><br>welcome to the forum ! at the very least post us some nice pics of new custom jobs <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"><img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"><img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_twisted.gif" alt="Twisted Evil" longdesc="13">

    Sounds interesting yes i will do. i suppose if i was making them on a far grander scale then my materials would be cheaper but with it all being done by hand they take more time. I will deffinately post some pics of the custom work i do and get some honest opinions on it.

    <span class="postbody"><br><br><br>sweet! I hope I wasn't negative too much, just being honest about how I felt in the past, and for me in canada to get a sheet of that 18mm ply is pricy so I hear that on the cost of materials!!!<br><br><br>the bottom line is tho, if some1 wants to buy something they will pay whatever the price <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"> so you sell it and they will buy! <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"> I wish I could do this also for my area!!!</span>

    There is nothing stopping you from making it more than a hobby. Who dares wins, is a motto i have followed for many years and that nothing is unachievable as long as your commited and passionate about succeeding. Thats the beauty of the web

    Im no sales guru or anything but as far as a website is concearned i would keep it simple and easy to use but as honest and informative as possible and keep it updated so people dont get bored going back to the same thing time after time.(says me who has not updated anything for a week!!!!) The rest is up to you, what designs you create or materials you use and of course the dredded price!! You have to make it a business without ripping people off but you cant afford to give everything away, just be fair and competative. And of course, good luck <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cheers.png" alt="cheers" longdesc="28">
