I'm shooting this as my EDC today, it isn't beautiful like the others because I just made it from plywood, I didn't stain it, varnish, or sand much, I just wanted to shoot it so I quit on finishing it.
But I'm still trying to figure out how to not get forkhits with it. Ouch!

That's a nice "beater", it reminds me of a guy that had a primer painted Chevy, with a 454 under the hood, it was quite fast. What is the reason you don't taper your bands?

Hey Turk, I don't remember seeing that Lewis pride axiom before.. She's a real beauty!!

Thanks Joe. Yeah man a real looker, I've been EDC'ing it lately. It's made from bog wood (beech) and black linen micarta faces, black linen micarta core, gp03 liners and a leather palmswell. It's one of my most accurate shooters. It's based of the axiom champ design, yet downsized I believe. It has a 1.6" fork gap, a true competition shooter. Here are some pics:

Notice the natural cracks on it. It gives it a special kind of charm. Bogwood is wood that's preserved in decayed acidic swamp water for hundreds of years sometimes a 1,000 years.

I tapered my bands on my other slingshot, but after a few hundred shots the band snapped near the pouch, they shoot fast, but don't last long. The ones in the picture are 20mm straights, heck! 1/2 straights lasted much much much longer than the 25-20mm tapers! And that's not much of a taper!

I'm sure that Chevy guy eventually blew his motor. It was a Chevy after all.

Today I was shooting my 1st PFS slingshot original design by Sanch.
I was using medium dipped tubes from simple shot and 9.5 steel.


I love Simple Shot's "house" tubes. They have a thinner wall than Dankung of the same draw. That should mean faster but I haven't tested them with a chrony.

That's one of the sexiest monochrome frames I've ever seen. Looks like alien archaeologists will be able to dig it up in a billion years and it will be the same.
