**** it...

i recently brough a 6 strand trophy slingshot off hawk, very nice catty with alot of power and a great price also. i found my 8mm steel were just wasting the energy the 6 1845 tubes provided so i started using heavier ammo untill i ended up with a 7/8' marble, a massive round no doubt. problem is i wasnt fully used to the grip and hadnt got comfortable with it which ended up in my getting a fork hit and it bounced off my hand aswell (my fault not the slingshots) i noticed a little bit of cracking but it seemed mainly the varnish, i then got another 2 fork hits in roughly the same place despite holding differently. on the third i noticed a massive f**king crack that ran right up the fork (again this is with the 7/8' marble) after a little wobble one side of the fork came off. rather annoying. so that means im down to a zinc alloy clone for now with the 6 strand trophy out of action. however i do now have all the tools and materials (minus varnish/linseed/etc) to make myself a natural so i guess that is the next task, just annoying to have destroyed a catty within days of recieving it =\

Yes, I shoot marbles quite a lot and it is nothing for me to notice one fly way off target quite often. I can switch to 3/8" steel and everything goes as planned...well almost.
