Pelleteer,Sounds good, Don.
Flat, the frame is a full 3/4" thick. There's only 1-11/16" between prongs (total width of fork is 3.25"), so I thought fork hits might be a problem, but I shoot it flip style with no troubles.
Ok, I should learn to leave well enough alone. I decided that the bands on my cheapie flip were too long and I wasn't getting enough zip so I shortened them and retied them being careful that everything was even. My accuracy went to ****. So I decided to put a band set on that was better quality, still very erratic shooting. Tell me what you think I should do. I was thinking of getting some latex bands from Bill Herriman. Good idea? I can guess Bill will think so. BTW Bill I have a brother that lives in Kerrville.Glad to hear you're pleased with it, Don. These really do provide a very solid framework for a custom flip. I love mine too. I'm still thinking of picking up one or two more to work on in the near future. You can't beat the price for a nice hardwood frame.
I took the double latex bands off of my Saunders Hawk and put them on the ebay flip and accuracy impoved greatly. I guess an easier pulling band set is what works best for this particular sling. May order some more double latex bands from Bill or from saunders.Hmmm...I'm not sure what's happening in this case. I mean,obviously when you shorten or lengthen, or in any other way change the speed of your bands, you get a different trajectory, but that typically only affects your elevation. Your windage should still be pretty much the same. The thing is, that's pretty easy to adjust to after a few shots, once you know how much higher or lower you're shooting with a specific band setup. I don't know why a change of bands would cause the shots to become erratic though.
