Hello SlingshotForum friends!!!

Here's my latest handmade natural, another version of an old design of mine, the "Slug". Its characteristics are the flowing form of the handle, slight concave shape near the top of the forks (on shooter's side) for better comfort at sideways thumb-support style of shooting and a flat front piece. This one was finished with some linseed oil and natural shellac. It will be part of a future pending trade.

You folks will excuse the poor quality of the pictures, but today was real lousy weather for photography (I suspect this kind of weather will be prolonged for a few more days ahead)

Hope you guys like it!!!!

Cheers ...Q

Nice. The recurve is a very effective leverage handle.
Many thanks for your feedback, Ordo!!

The slight recurve shape of the handle appears to be quite comfortable and gives a tiny leverage indeed, as I've experienced on previous naturals as this one.

I'm glad you've liked it!!

Appears to be nicely made and comfortable to the hand - Simply well done!
Thank you so much for your rewarding reply!!

Best regards ...Q

Beautiful!! I love how you married the simple shooter side with the ergonomic target side to make a very comfortable flip. Amazing work as always!
Many thanks for your feedback, my friend!!

It seems that this design has worked very well for me in the past. I'm going to test it in the next few days, if weather allows it :)

Best regards ...Q

Beautiful and buttery smooth as always my friend.
A very nice shape. Pleasing to the eye and no doubt a super shooter.
