I got this wonderful frame in the mail from Perry at A+ slingshots for my collection. You have to have one of Perry's if you are a serious collector! We traded frames and I have to say this is a great piece of work. Three wood types ,Cherry Oak and Walnut-laminated and also a steel 1/4" rod down through the forks into the handle for strength-AWESOME! I have a very big hand but this model (the A-2) fits great. The hole in the handle is a wonderful addition and located perfectly and really secures your grip. Perry did his homework on this and does some really nice work. I also love the way he does his bands-folded tapers-same as the way I like to do mine. I'll shoot her tomorrow but I already know she is a shooter-just has that feel you know
? Great job Perry and thanks! Flatband
I'm really glad you liked it!!!
It's really a ONE OF A KIND as a carpenter friend made up only a small amount of this laminate for me to try of scraps from some of his specialty work he does. So sadly I don't think this is not something I'll be able to offer to the public unless I get a lot more creative time or another source.
Now for a little about what I got!!!!
The setup you traded me is truly great Gary!!! I love it!! Though I have not tried too many of your fine creations, I believe this model may very well your best design
!!!!! It shoots and feels great, and those bands of yours really have some excellent speed and power in a single tapered band.
I don't think the picture I took just does the Spalted Maple justice but I couldn't seem to get a better one as it's foggy here today and the flash wreaked havoc with the nice shiny poly on your work so I couldn't use it.
I know that some may think this is one for the "Mutual Admiration Society", but I don't care!!!! Get a Flatband slingshot too!!!! You won't be disappointed!!!
Really appreciate the trade, and again thanks for your patients with me on getting it done!!
