Hi everone
Need a bit more help?
It looks to me that the vintage slingshots used bands that passed inbetween the forks? is this correct and ifso
when we repo the vintage models is this the best way to fit them or can we improve the designe bye making them Over the top style?

or do you think the repo would be best to keep the same designe .As always the info we get back is firt class thank you all

Also what are the best flat band on the market for sale

Flatband here would be the man to talk to about rubber for vintage forks, I've gotten ones from him for my wham o sportsman and my victor 20...
I personally would prefer that the design and attachment stay as is.

Hi Pete,
like Harp said, keep the rigging the same Bud. In fact I'm starting to lean a little back towards the vintage style attachments-especially through the throat. Over the top has it's advantages,but lately I've done a lot of through the throat shooting and am really liking it a lot again.Flatband

What goes around comes around......if it worked then it'll work now...
now if I could only hit the broad side of the barn with my Wham O all would be right with the world.

Hi Flatband.
When we have our protatypes ready would you do some field trials for us with feed back using your bands??.
We may do both styles will make a call when we get the masters?

Personally, I think classic reproductions should remain accurate (but with a brand mark something so that it won't be passed off later as an original). On the other hand, if the market for accurate repros is already well filled, when why not do a flip version.

Good luck and great to hear, don't even mind loosing the bid to you...all for a good cause:)

The milligan is aluminum so it should arrive in one piece, the killdeer is cast zinc I believe, so just keep your fingers crossed that they don't brutalize it too much...but then it's survived 50 yrs already a little transcontinental flight should be a piece of cake.
