    This little shooter is about 20 % bigger than the canvas micarta and the first Prototype.
    I wanted bigger Fork tips, so I scaled the whole slingshot up.

    There are exactly the same materials for the middle Section, as I used for the canvas micarta model.

    The Denim Micarta is made out of one layer Denim and one layer white canvas.
    I wanted a little contrast in the micarta, to make it more three dimensional.
    The Denim micarta, which I use on the “MAX”
    https://www.theslingshotforum.com/f5/max-denim-micarta-maxim-simpleshot-design-31398/
    was interesting, but a little bit boring.

    Of course, the finish of the "MAX" looks much better, but I wanted it for daily use.

    On this slingshot I pronounced the palm swell much more as I doubled the micarta.
    So it is very comfortable in the hand, but not so comfortable in the pocket….

    This one is banded with 06er Latex and a Pouch for 10 mm Steal balls.

    I hope you are now no longer bored?

    That's it for today… is also sufficient...

    I hope you like my Target Queens as much as I like them.

    Sorry, one last question… which one you like most?

    They all look great! The denim one gets my vote, it looks menacing but purposeful. Thumbs up!

    That´s a badass question! But: all of them!

    Like I like Chagall, Rodin an Frank L. Wright

    (You are feeding my bug!- every single time!)


    P.s: If I could marry one of those beauties, I would try
    to impress Lady Denim...

    Wow, I like #3 even better than #2, I just love how denim looks when used like this. Just a really great piece of work. Looks like you've got that micarta process down to a science. Beautiful. I really like this.

    The denim one looks kind like carbon fiber. Looks cool. As for a favorite, I cant decide, they all have their place. I love all of them :)

    Stunners... I'm even a bit light headed from visual spasms! They are all definitely QUEENS but that denim is a knockout!

    Well you were pretty busy peparing this 3 act drama xD Wowsers... I gotta say the micarta is impressive on both, it makes the yellow one look like a wasp with very slim neck and the black n white is simply top class elegance.
    But.. my favourite is the bankarai for the pocket :)

    Another beauty and I like that jazzy-looking “grain” type of effect.

    Denim is my favorite. You don't need to put anything in the middle of a micarta do you?
