It's getting to the point that I won't vote for a rig unless it's banded anymore.

I'm just not going to vote except for those that are banded. I wouldn't call it a comedy though. You have your opinion and I have mine.

Nice to know I'm not alone on the banded/not banded issue. I am aware of the rules, but when it comes to my vote I go by my rules. Gotta be banded. It's hard enough to pick one out of all the great slingshots that get nominated, seeing how the bands and the band-attachment method looks gives the voter more information to go by.

Never mind I wrote before I saw the other comments
My question was already answered

So you can vote for alder by ile66 or rubins by slingshotnew or don't vote.
(Rubins by slingshotnew had a banded picture but it didn't used:

I don't want to stir up any trouble, but I thought that was the rules after the big fiasco last year after MJ won SSOTM with just bands in his hands. 

 

They had to be shown with the bands on to be eligible ?

i think this event has passed it's zenith. it no longer represents the best slingshots of the month. With no disrespect to any maker or nominations (it is not a put down to realize that some slingshots are clearly better than others) the current standings as of the time if this post could not be considered an accurate description of slingshot of the month. The dynamic difference in quality of build,finish,materials, and artistic ability is not reflected by the voting.

I disagree because of subjectivity YSYEO.  Opinion isn't fact.  Yours is the perspective of a master builder.  Mine is the perspective of an awestruck enthusiast- still captivated by shiny things...  Tastes are as varied as the materials used to craft these beauties.  For you, perfection may rest in an engineering dilemma solved, or in some other aspect of implemented precision during the build.  For me, a particular slingshot may remind me of a cherished event, or person, heck- I may just like the colors.  I think the diversity in our "quality filters" is a good thing, a true thing, and more of a strength than a weakness.

I'm glad that Genoa agrees with me that there is a controversy. Thanks for your support boss!!!

votint for your favorite color or whatever and not the best slingshot makes SSOTM a Participation Award.

You trivialize my friend.  That's not like you-

 

Your criteria for judgement is simply different than mine.  Both are legal...   :)

Which parameters determine the "best" slingshot...without actually holding it and shooting it, though?
I personally base my decision on which one looks the best, because it is all I have to go on...a lot of which is finish, types of materials, grain quality (if wood is used) or pattern...
A slingshot could be a simple green tree fork with all the bark intact...as long as it is functional...so, really we are voting on artistic expression, and which one connects with our own personal idea of the "best"

I personally prefer wood over any other type...so, I am more incline to find a wooden frame more desirable....

My personal opinion is that there should be a contest for hobby builders...and a separate one for sellers....the hobby builders clearly have a disadvantage due to limited tools and supplies....I always avoided voting (this was my first time) because of this reason...there were always so many amazing shooters, but it would be unjustified to not pick the absolute nicest one, which is always one of the trademarked shooters
