    ...and another one I made last week, it is made out of a 30 mm beech multiplex plate, a very tough material.

    I love this one, the shape is a mix of many slingshots I know. There is no specific one, but I can see a lot of details in other slingshots.
    Even if it does not look like it feels very good in the hand.

    Also, I've tested this extensively, but unfortunately it does not shoot as good as the POM monster...:D

    I will work on the form even further and will try somet different band sets and some new material, but for now have a look:

    which do you like better...?

    Really beautiful, the handle remembers me some of flippinout slingshots, but the fork is totally new for me.
    The look is pretty nice but you could also try it with a little less wide fork, i'm quite sure it would shoot great.

    A very nice piece of plex and a very original design! 30mm...wow!
    I'm with Artons, I am reminded very much of a Flippinout
    model by the handle

    Very Nice! I can see the "Chalice" there. Also I have made shooters that just don't like me but shoot fine for someone else. If that is too subtle? Then Hint Hint! Nice piece of work.

    Thank you all for your kind words, I banded this shooter with a new band setup,
    and now shooting is already much better…

    You are absolutely right, but amazingly, I had the chalise not on y mind. It was the “Scallops”
    (Designed by ZDP-189 - Manufactured and Casted by Hogan Castings) of which I have stolen quit a lot of details… :eek:

    Not subtle at all, it seems to apply to me…:D


    I had this on my mind… ;)

    A hard choice between the two. I guess just send them over so I can compare in person:p

    I'm going with the Pom monster, I just love the curves of it.

    To be honest I would be in a BIG TROUBLE choosing one of yours, the POM is very different from this "chalice" both unique beauties on it's own ... congrats LW, as always great craftsman !
    Cheers
