Let me know what you think guys. The one with the aluminum handle and the one with deer antler I made about a year ago and have been loving them and shooting them everyday. So figured it was time to make another one. This time wanting to make a pinch grip (never made one before). And might I say I think it's the most comfortable sling I've ever made. I'm not sure if I'm totally happy with the looks of it, but every time you grab it it's locks in the hand perfectly everytime. Let me know what you all think. Be honest:)

The aluminum handle one is probably my favourite out of the three. It's a work horse. And will shoot about any band set you throw at it.

I like brass anything n that one looks like a shooter to me :). I read recently that copper deteriorates latex (or is it rubber?) a lot faster or something like that so the lesser amount of copper in the brass might be worth considering. If you're shooting enough in a day or two it prob doesn't matter tho.. nice stuff!

So you are building one a year or so? This isn't a contest or anything! Super stunning and creative. !

They are really nice all three.
That pinch grip looks really comfortable in the hand. But I would have to agree that the brass frame is the coolest one of the bunch.

Long john. Your exactly right. The copper reacts with rubber. Alliance #107 bands will tarnish the brass a bit where it ties on, but never seems to hurt anything or degrade the rubber. The latex doesn't affect it at all. And thanks everyone else so much for the comments. And I apologize if im late in commenting back. It still only lets me post 10 times a day lol

Brass has such a great feel and weight. Those are some really nice frames! They all look great!
