Thanks goes first to FIAAO for designing an awesome and compact little sideshooter! I did some minor modifications once I had it on paper. First, I changed the grip angle slightly to center the 'teardrop' lobe of the grip with the throat and located a center for a 9/16" pinky hole. The other mod is the forks. I designed those with the idea of shooting wider fork end bands for faster tapers than I have normally shot. I had once asked Master Flatband (Gary Miller) for some band cut dimensions for the starship he was shooting "Superfly" in his video. He graciously replied so I still had some of those stashed away that had been broken twice at the pouch so shortened a bit but still ok. I had remembered seeing a picture of Jaybird's (Jay Scott-Rest His Soul) favorite shooter. Fork tips were 1 1/4" wide with a 1" gap. So to handle these bands and as a tribute to his design, here it manifested! Shooting Prophet Arturo style full butterfly with double bands and 3/8"×1/2" home cast lead cylinders from Charles' moulds, it is FAST even out in the cold! The swell is black walnut from an old cabinet door and my maple laminate 5/8" thick, about ten plies. No stain, but a BLO soak for a nearly forgotten 2 1/2 days... I LOVE THIS PIECE and I hope you guys enjoy seeing it too!
