Ergo Thumb Support OTT Slingshot

I made a thumb support grip slingshot out of two boards of Mahogay. I needed two glued boards to get the necessary thickness for the many swells and curves. I tried hard to make this one really ergonomic and fitting my hand and grip modality. Here some pics of the rather exhausting process and a video. Hope you like it. Cheers.

SLINGDUDE: Shoots extremely well, very stable. No excuses if I miss.


KawKan: Thanks.

flipgun: Sound advice. Will remember it for the next one.

NSFC: Would love to see your designs. It seems to me that thumb support designs are undervalued.

Thanks everybody. Here two close ups and some plastic thumb adds-on I'm thinking about, figuring out a modular design based on adds-on plastic parts. Who knows..., may be.

It's not too late to put that in the SSOTM thread.
Done. Many thanks! I was totally unaware of that challenge.
