I'm newbie and foreign in this forum, and many are the words that I can not seem to make sense, my translation is literal, such as "cant" to me means "slang" or "hypocrisy" but not "angle", I became crazy

A great write up. Maybe "Over The Top" and "Through The Fork" should be listed with their commonly used abbrevaitions OTT and TTF in brackets.
Do we already have "frame/fork hit", "twisted pouch", "flip style" and "speed bump effect"?

Can you add Catapult (Catty) (the UK term for a sling) for the benefit of all?
Sorry to be picky but is it possible to put these terms into alphabetical order for a print out (I'm assuming you have a d-base)?
To the organisers - this deserves a special place in your tabs - is possible?
Thanks a mil, footloose

Did I miss it? Can someone tell me what an SPS slingshot is? Thanks for the opportunity to ask.

Also, if any of you are wondering what spalted wood is, it appears to be wood that has been affected by fungal organisms, causing changes in coloration and pattern in the wood, prized by some for its beauty. It is said that before working spalted wood, it should be put in a microwave oven and/or(?) soaked in boiled linseed oil (BLO) to prevent inhaling/ ingesting fungus spore which could have an adverse effect on one's health.
Am I the only one who uses an Internet forum to talk to himself?

Missed this one Kitro-sorry Bud. Jim at Performance Catapults has a few wonderful models. Besides the SPS, he has the EPS -Element Pocket Shooter He also at one time had the ETS-Element Target Shooter. I think he also has a line of slimmer versions. They are all quality frames. Jim was the first one to come up with the idea of a "Bullet proof" frame. He uses all types of exotic woods and sandwiches a slab of metal in between them for strength.Great concept. Visit Performance Catapults and take a glance at some extraordinary slingshot work.
