Very nice design. I know it's a cutting board, but what kind of material is that?

Well I did some research and here is what I found.
"Composite boards are cutting boards made of heavy duty paper / cardboard pulp which are coated in a polymer resin to harden and bind them together. They are softer than wooden cutting boards, but should be cared for much the same way."
My experience with this stuff is that it's super hard. Way way harder than plywood and all but the hardest and most dense natural woods. I feel it would make an excellent core if one were so inclined.

Hi Matt
Do you think it is the type of material traded under the mark "Epicurean"?

In Topic: ITALY 2018 - Slingshot world cup

Hi Martenace (or Marco)
I surfed around the world cup website and have a incertitude or question rather:
Is participation only for nations/teams or also for individuals? I ask you this question because the application form is only for nations/teams, and there is none for individuals. I'm a solo/single shooter from bella Svizzera and would like to participate, yet there is no team around to join - how do I applicate?

In Topic: Help with weak wrist

I suggest you change the type of slingshot or at least the style of holding it. Your natty (or the one in the picture you showed us) has very very very long forks (fork arms). So, holding it in hammer grip (as in the picture) the leveraged force you suffer on your wrist, nobody can stand it. Try thumb supported grip or pinch grip moving as close as possible towards the forks' ends, such minimizing leverage.

For illustration look at the photo where I'm holding a selfmade Rambone (design Jörg Sprave) in hammer grip; very strong bands and literally no leverage, ie. not much force on my wrist, easy to hold.

Now look at the next photos where I'm holding a selfmade Fugetaboutit (design by Youllshootyereyeout) in pinch grip. Easy piecy to hold even with strongest bands, and no need not even for a wrist lanyard since the pinky holds everything secure and firmly in place.

Good luck. Make the best of it and stay positive, this will speed up your recovery (we're waiting for you).

In Topic: where do your bands break?

08 March 2017 - 06:42 PM

My bands always break at the pouch were they are cuffed (I don't wrap and tie, I cuff in SamuraiSamoht style, see http://slingshotforu...lingshot-bands). And I'm very happy with that regularity, since I never get a band slap/hit in the face and second, I always can re-cuff at least one more time until the bands are to short. Normally, I shoot far over 500 rounds with tapered bands (20-15mm) ...
