Okay, this is NOT about my slingshot -- you have all heard enough about that one!

This is a plug for Hogan's Casting. Flatband's slingshots from them yesterday were just perfect, weren't they?
Well, I got something in the mail yesterday, too. I liked the bronze casting they did for me so much, I asked them to do another in black aluminum. And here's what they did:



Gary is right. Hogan Castings rocks!

Oh Wow,they can do wooden repro's too! That came out great Bill! I wonder about Epoxy resin frames? I'm thinking a Boler repro in Aluminum (Black). Now that would be something. The Boler was one of my favorites and some of it's features were incorporated into my Ergo design. Go Hogan and Sons! Flatband

Gary, I looked it up and wanted to post a couple of pics:



I think that would be awesome!

Tell me, how is the Boler to shoot with?

I have both left and right hand Bolers. I don't think that the orginal patent mentions band type, but I think that they were originally a flat band slingshots from one of the old ads I saw. At any rate they shoot great with flat bands. They are heavy slingshots being made of solid resin. Here is a link for the original patent info. - Tex

Cast in aluminum they would be light slingshots, do you think that would be an improvement, Tex?
