    Powerful hammerhead slingshot made of mulberry tree

    Here are my latest slingshots with some improvements. This one is made of mulberry tree. Lightweight, ergonomic and handle is shaped so it allows grip most tightly to the fork. Not tired arm after prolonged use.
    I will explane again for the slope of the fork because it's important - it is selected so there will be no unnecessary friction on the bands to maximize its entire length. Done so because with a flat surface as with standard fork where there is no such slope is obtained high friction and energy loss, respectively. Especially if you use tappered bands. This leads to overloading of the rubber, which shortens the life of the bands. Depending on the width and length of the slope, which define the friction surface, certain mm from the band does not work effectively. This is why the friction with the surface of the fork, which in turn leads to overloading of the bands - leads to a loss of energy, and shortens the life of thebands.
    The top layer of the handle (grip) is made with special tool by hand as the others.
    Hand painted with shellac on 20 layers.
    Dimensions are shown on the picture.
    PRICE: 45euro

    New addition to the Turkish walnut

    This slingshot has the same specifications as the other which was made of 3rd Grade Turkish walnut. The top layer of the handle (grip) is made with special tool by hand which is used for stock and handles of high quality sporting rifles.
    Improvements here include: lightness, ergonomics and the handle is shaped so that it allows grip most tightly to the fork. Not tired arm after prolonged use.
    Depending on the width (24 mm) and length (28 mm) of the slope, which define the friction surface as shown on the upper picture, certain mm from the band does not work effectively. This is why the friction with the surface of the fork, which in turn leads to overloading of the bands - leads to a loss of energy, and shortens the life of the bands.
    PRICE: 45 euro
