I made this with high forks and banded it with 1842...its beginner friendly and the shape naturally encourages the user to point the tips forward towards the target, so there's no wrist strain...it feels and shoots just like a low fork flip..
My 4 year old daughter calls it the "airplane" and wants to play with it as auch...lol...and my teen daughter said it looks like a space ship....and tried to claim it for herself already.

I never intended it to end up looking like that. i just started carving with my knife and this is what i ended up with...but now that they mentioned it, I'm gonna call it "Maq 1" (the "maq" in Mi'kmaq is pronounced the same as "Mach" so i think its a suitable title)

Finished with BLO

(One of my pics won't upload...it says "Upload failed" and "This is an adult image")

That is one of the most elegant slingshots I've ever seen, friend.

It is like Obi Wan's 1st lightsaber except more fun.

What are you lacing up on it...tubes or bands?
