    I may have to give this one a try, seem's like it would fit well in a hiking bag. Have a good day.

    i think this is by far the most simple yet awesome slingshot concept.<br>i´d love to make the rubber even a bit shortet so you alsmost only carry around the frame.<br>it looks a little bit uncomfortable to hold tho <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_sad.gif" alt="Sad" longdesc="3">

    It is fairly bulky and edgy, plus it uses Tubes. My flatband shooters outperform it hands down. The tubes also do not live very long because of the abrasion. <br><br>That is why I no longer follow that concept.

    Im not a fan of this one, it seem efficient but not very stylish.

    Its not that efficient as it looks. I think its to edgie and will hurt after a few shots.

    I like the design, personally. He probably felt he could make something similar but better.

    <span class="postbody"><br><br>Joreg is big guy but even he struggles with speargun rubber, I think while maybe being able to draw it at least partly, the strain on the wrist would be too much to be able to aim with any hope of hitting a target at a distance</span>
