My favourite is Quercusuber's Orange Giant. The grain and the shape is absolutely crazy, not to mention Q's woodcarving skills with an axe  ;) 

Oh boy - the thread can be found here: http://slingshotforu...n-orange-giant/ Good luck man!

Oh boy, this month is a killer...i already know i never had such a hard time picking my fav. SS.

 

To add even more confusion i´d like to nominate one of Gophers Slingshots.

I think the one he made out of electronic-parts was a stunner and the laminated one he presented here

http://slingshotforu...r-maple-hybrid/

looks even better.

Can't believe no one has offered this one up for nomination yet.  The SPS being one of my favorite designs, although I have not had a chance to shoot one yet :(.  I feel it is my duty to place this one up for voting.  Ladies and Gentlemen, Performance Catapults "SPS Apocalypse"
