I have a queston for the experts and artists here, is 1/8inch Sintra PVC sheet suitable for slingshots as a stand alone or perhaps a core?

kip, since no one seems to know i researched a bit for you, first let me say i have tons of experience with pvc, so i looked up the sintra brand looking for similarities and differences. from the information i gained let me say this material would make a slingshot very easily............ but!
when heated say by the sun it becomes softer, bendable.
in the cold it becomes very brittle, you could snap a fork by dropping it.

sorry dooood
