    Litte improvement on my very first Multiplex Slingshot.

    A Detachable-Handslap-Protector. Made from a spoke and some leather.

    Very useful in my opinion.

    Thanks.

    Had some terrible Handslaps when shooting 9.5mm steel balls with TBG.

    But none when shooting with TB Blue. I dont wanted to have a permanant protector. And after some hours of studying for exams i had this idea.

    Yes Works like a charm. But i dont know how many shots it will last. Just glued the Leather to the spoke on one side, with superglue, To be able to bend it for mounting and dismounting.

    Great idea and I like the looks of the protector! Its good to test with the lighter wire frame and may be make a stronger model later.

    Inspired by Jörgs protector slingshot. But his protector was way to heavy for my taste.

    I´ve done over 100 Shots so far without any deformation of the protector. Looks like it even works with the thin bicyle spoke frame.
