    Ok, as I promised, here's another baby of mine that I have<br>born this weekend.<br><br><br>It is the HULK:<br><img src="http://i76.servimg.com/u/f76/18/08/39/77/hulk_010.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><br><img src="http://i76.servimg.com/u/f76/18/08/39/77/hulk_012.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><img src="http://i76.servimg.com/u/f76/18/08/39/77/hulk_011.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><img src="http://i76.servimg.com/u/f76/18/08/39/77/hulk_013.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><br>It is a rotating fork or grip, as you like. The first try, was the rotating grip with the fork<br>you have seen at the BIG BOB. But this does not work. Every time pulling out<br>the band, the fork rotates to the side.<br><br><br>I think OTT and rotating fork, don not work together&hellip;?<br><br><br>So I had to build a new fork <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_redface.gif" alt="Embarassed" longdesc="10">. The design is not new; I bend it out of 20 mm stainless flat steel.<br><br><br><br>As the grip of the BOB took me about 8 hours work, I decide to make the fork without polishing.<br><br><br>The rotating fork is awesome, it works really well, and because of the attachment of the bands,<br>the aiming is very good and it is pretty damn accurate. I hit a wine bottle cork out of 6 meter every second time <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_bounce.gif" alt="bounce" longdesc="27"><br><br><br><br>Do not know, which one makes more fun to shot at the moment&hellip; <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cheers.png" alt="cheers" longdesc="28"><br><br><br><br><br><strong>Which one do you prefer???</strong>

    <span class="postbody"><br><br>I agree with onnod. It is too hard to decide. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_mad.gif" alt="Mad" longdesc="8"><br>If I were really forced to choose, I think, that I would take the HULK. I absolutely like the color combination of the handle. For me the colors green and black are on the right track to awesomeness. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"></span>

    <span class="postbody"><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>It is made <font face="&quot">​​</font>with 2K epoxy glue.<br>You have to mix a sufficient amount, more is better, because too little will be<br>a disaster because no second chance.<br>Then you use rubber gloves, and highlight the adhesive as quickly as possible with<br>a finger on the handle. Caution - the glue is getting hard very fast and when that<br>begins, you may not come with your fingers on the glue, otherwise there will be<br>no smooth surface. After 20 min it is quite hard and after about 2 hours you can<br>use it easily. <strong>A grind is not necessary</strong>.<br><br>I would try this first on another thing; it's not quite as easy as it sounds.<br><br>Good luck</span>
