I've been finishing up three patterns today for me to make and shoot and I would like to know what you think about them. They are cut from 1/2" plywood because they are only patterns to use with other kinds of wood. I think I have finally got them right. I don't have any good wood or I would make some real slingshots to show instead.Posted Image

They all look good to me and will be better when you make some with the wood you get.

I like them all, Smitty. But on the poacher: Personally I would like a little more handle, because, assuming it's for hunting, some of us need to use a hammer grip for instinct shooting with heavy bands. Still like it though. :blush:

I like the "Tournament". It reminds me of a PS-1.

I like all your designs, but the one that really stands out for me is the tournament.

Well, OK then... I appreciate the help to know what's going on with them. I'm hoping to be able to sell and trade a few to further my slingshot hobby. Now I just have to get me some wood to cut and carve up into slingshots.Posted Image

I can see the beauty in all 3, smitty. Actually the Tournament and Poacher seem to have the most merit(modifiable and user friendly) and visual appeal.

All of them look good and should shoot great. If I had to pick one it would be the poacher. Thanks for showing.
