  1. Homemade Slingshots
    Does anyone know where to find sheets of microfiber thick enough to make diy microfiber pouches? I have been using leather and it works ok but with the leather I have the the band holes stretch and slightly tear. I would love to find some microfiber material especially on Amazon suitable for...

    I struggled with this for a while. I bought one of those little leather pouches with the magnetic flap, but that wasn't great for clay ammo, and the magnet pulled out a bunch of ammo that then needed to be crammed back in. I ultimately settled on making my own, but a family member gave me a gift...

    Dear Fellow Shooters, How do you hold your pouch? I have a feeling my release is the major issue I'm having now. The other big issue is the position of my elbow. What is the secret to a nice and clean release? Thank you very much and have a wonderful day Alan
  5. Speed Pouch

    I made these specifically for shooting 1/4 inch steel in the SSF 300 club. They are 1mm thick x 40mm x 15mm. I modeled them after some from Torstens video. Some i made previously where to narrow for the forces being applied.

    I'm a fairly new shooter, so i made my own slingshot. By any chance, is there any way to cushion the forks? the way i shoot my homemade slingshot is very painful on my finger. also, what materials are good to make an efficient pouch?
  8. General Slingshot Discussion
    Hey everyone, I recently became interested in making my own leather slingshot pouches. Up until now I've been using Rayshot's Supersure pouches, and these have been absolutely exceptional. However, I'm in the UK and ordering the pouches from America means a very long wait and expensive shipping...

    Here is some work (a couple hundred not shown), from a week + ago. As you can see the light color side is showing so I could label the pouches. The opposing sides are green, and what I call "ruby". I wanted to create better composition for a good photo but they had to get in the mail. So...

    Yo "Hypersonic" WBG *These are now available PM me for details (9-10-12) Not long ago I got a chance to shoot a .17 HMR rifle. This was truly a blast, and the experience got me thinking again about smaller ammo and high speed slingshots. A while ago, I was asked to make a smaller slingshot...

  18. Slingshot Bands and Tubes
    I have been experimenting with different shaped pouches and this is what I come up with. It is a single layer pig skin that has the ends folded back over 1/2 inch and glued with Barge contact cement. I put a thin strip of cowhide in the end for a stiffener. I put the fold to the outside so I can...
