    Wow!! This was very thoughtful and very generous BV! Excellent, and very originally, designed shooter and the work on the case was fantastic too.
    This could not have found a better home than with you Arturo! I wish you many hours of happy shooting:)

    I'm glad you like it, Mr. Arturo! When I got the "cabreuva" plank from a friend, the "AFS" (Arturo fork shooter) just happened in my head.
    It's a rare wood, almost extinct here. It releases a great perfume when cut or sanded. And also very hard. Right now I'm building 2 other slingshots with it, (the eyepokers.....guess why?) and a little piece is left. Future generations won't have the chance to know this wood easily.
    Let me know how it shoots, my friend!

    Ps- I'm evolving the "A" design..... Sooner I shall have the prothotype of the "groovy Arturo", the "pickle Arturo" and the "Apocalyptic Arturo".:D

    It's a pity BV and makes me sad to know that the cabreúva wood is in extinction, this last 100 years had passed away more species than the last 5 million years ... we humans need to seriously review our behavior with nature !

    You make me :eek: embarrassed.......
    There is nothing better than giving a friend a gift.
    I have a philosofy.....this is the time of the use, not the possession.
    Giving a slingshot for use makes it usefull and complete it's purpose. Even more if it's going to be used a lot.

    Makes me feel happy.

    I dig your philosophy.:) I've given more slingies than I've kept as well. we just bought a house, our agent was a long lost friend of mine from school, when the deal closed I presented him with a solid birch boardcut pocket predator(Mr. Bill, I also made one for a kid as requested). It was nice to see his appreciation, he hadn't had a slingshot since childhood.

    About it.....what is your height, Mr.Arturo? I've been cutting bands on the size you told me, but I can't spread wide my arms in butterfly shooting.
    Maybe I'll need a longer set.....

    I am 175cm height take your arms span and divide it by 4.5 in my case 30cm effective gives me 135cm draw between 3/4 to full butterfly, when the rubber wears it elongates a bit more about to 142cm (full butterfly for me), now if you use the fist grip like Tobse you will need extra 2 or 3 cm ...
