    hi I started doing slingshots a couple of months ago. I've always liked the slingshots and when I started to see videos of Joerg I decided to make my own slingshots so here I show you three of them<br>PS: sorry for my bad English.<br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=8&u=18229386" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i72.servimg.com/u/f72/18/22/93/86/imag1712.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=9&u=18229386" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i72.servimg.com/u/f72/18/22/93/86/imag1713.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=10&u=18229386" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i72.servimg.com/u/f72/18/22/93/86/imag1714.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=11&u=18229386" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i72.servimg.com/u/f72/18/22/93/86/imag1715.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a>

    Nice 3 firsts zurdo, a way better than my first attempt, my vote is for the wooden one, only a little suggestion: lower a bit the fork tips to exert less force in your frame hand ... the blueprint section has lots of awesome designs you can copy and/or adapt to your preferences ...<br>Saludos cordiales<br>Arturo

    <div>Those are some nice strong looking frames. The black handle one looks much like one I made.<br><br>I've noticed my forks get shorter with every ss I make, so I second Arturo's suggestion.<br><br>From looking I'd guess you like powerful bands--you might really enjoy a W frame like the two in the tutorial vids.<br>I built a metal W and it is truly a joy to shoot heavy stuff with<br><br>Nice work<br>

    <br>All objects in the universe are either ammo, shooting platforms, or potential slingshot frames.<br> Of yeah, I forgot about targets</div>

    I like the middle, wooden one. It reminds me a lot of my own "Bad Company" design. Do you hold it hammergrip style? If so, you might try adding a palmswell so the grip has some "depth", it makes it much more comfortable to hold.<br><br><img src="http://i237.photobucket.com/albums/ff200/mhpr53/DSCN1504.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br>template is over on slingshotforum.com.
