Hey guys,

Been a long time since I have posted a SS on here. Just finished one for a friend that helped me out on my house. He doesn't shoot slings but i hope, with this, to get him started ;) I let him grab my slingshot one day just to see how he holds, shoots etc :) He seems comfortable with a pistol grip but as he shoots, I wanted to incorporate an on the fork grip also. Gap between the forks is 2.5" (plenty of space to reduce fork hits) and i gave him a set of 107 bands (9.5" long that he can trim if he wishes)

Here it is. Hope you guys like it

Rockslinger:

My thoughts exactly. What do i need more than 1 fork for? Any others I make either replace my current or get passed to friends and family. Share the sport!

Knoll:

Thanks. I've really liked your work on here :) No way my slings are better than yours.

Aleister:

Yeah, a lot a lot :)

AJW: Thanks :)
