I am relatively new to the slingshot world
I had the obligatory wrist rocket as a child of course. But got a Pocket Predator HTS. In the mail yesterday.
While I was waiting for it I built
This one. I would appreciate your options of it. I havent put bands on it yet.
Also some advice on how to make sure it is safe to shoot would be appreciated.
It's a cherry wood board cut.

Great execution on an excellent design.
That grain looks tight and well oriented, which are good signs.
You can test it by attaching paracord to the forks and giving it 30 pounds of pull or so - check for flex or cracking noises. Us a padded vice, or stand on the handle.
Thank you, I did that and it seems to be holding up well.ive built a couple bows so I defenately pay attention to the grain.So far its shooting well when I do my part.
