Morning everyone, just a quick post to share what Monroe [mention]Palmettoflyer [/mention] sent me for the Cold Weather trade that Jake [mention]DSIL [/mention] put together and drew names for.

Monroe's work is outstanding and he always sends me great stuff....never disappointed at all, and I LOVE what he sent this time.

First up is an HDPE frame that he modeled after a Flatural that Shane [mention]Island made [/mention] sent him made from some of the downed trees that Hurricane Dorian left in its wake, complete with a fancy Paracord lanyard in my favorite color of Zombie green.

Next up is an aircraft grade, ply cored Goblet design with Oak scales and a Copper lanyard tube that is fantastic and fits my hand perfectly....sure to become a favorite shooter...this thing looks like it was cut out with a laser, don't know how you get such crisp lines Monroe .

Next is a custom 3D printed ammo sorter for 3/8,5/16, & 1/4" steel......very, very cool Monroe.

Last but not least, Monroe sent some leather lacing strips that will come handy for various tasks I'm sure.

Thank you so much Monroe, great trade items and thanks also to Jake for putting the trade together.

**** Monroe, will be a busy week for me with year end closeout, but still working on your trade items and will hopefully be done in the next two weeks........and they WILL be shipped Priority this time....no more pussyfooting around with USPS ****

Trading with Darrell is like family birthdays and Christmas, "What do you get the guy who already has everything!".

The Goblet was inspired by Alex v with his EVO from Catty Shack. Alex built a copy of his EVO and I thought to do the same. Shortly after getting the design off the cores that Catty Shack sells, I realized that nearly every custom builder on the internet has their own version of the Goblet design. I made a quick prototype myself and the design is quite comfy to hold and very accurate to shoot. So in short, the Goblet is a classic design that everyone should have at least one if not more. I made a router template and the nice clean lines are an artifact of router table tooling.

The HDPE frame as Darrell mentioned is a trace from Shane's Island Made frames. A few weeks ago, Shane sent it to me along with a PFS frame that I bought from him. I was so impressed with the shape of this natty, that I traced it and asked Shane if we could make a template from it. So with the full blessing from Island Made Catapults, I present the first build from the template that will be called "The Island Made Hurricane, Dorian Design" Shane says it was a random shape, but I felt like it was worthy of it's own place in slingshot history. I'll upload the template here and on the "other" forum for everyone to access.

You're welcome on the other bits and bobs. The ammo sorter is a little off on print quality, but functional. If I get a chance to print a better one, I'll send it. But it does make quick work of getting the ammo shooting back to where it belongs. Just a handful at a time, close the lid, and shake it side to side.
