    Hey!<br><br>I've just finished my new Slingshot...<br><br>The special thing about this one is, that the pouch is made out of an old race-bicycle-tire. This tire is very thin, but stabilized with carbon fibers and glass fibers... If it will hold a long time? I believe so, this thing is unbelievable strong....<br><br>Do you see the Monkey in the Picture? Just with a little fantasy.... <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_wink.gif" alt="Wink" longdesc="15"><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=23&u=17401321" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i40.servimg.com/u/f40/17/40/13/21/2012-013.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a>

    Once I tried a rubber pouch and I had many fork hits.<br><br>I could not release smoothly. Somehow sticky. <br><br>Leather works much better for me.

    Well, i guess it depends on the rubber... The tire i used rolled about 15.000 km down the streets, so the outside isn't sticky anymore. Moreover the middle part is thicker than the rest and this is great for 15-20 mm balls... I have had fork hits with thin stuff, but not with stable things like this.

    Wish I find a non metalic material to make this same slingshot (that will be passed by metal detector).<br>Any ideas?

    Nice.<br>I sometimes use inner- tube pouches when i don' t have any leather and it works well.
